These photos were taken AFTER Glory was rescued and relocated to Micanopy, FL

Right in the heart of Carrollwood Village, near the intersection of Lowell and Casey, stands a "farm" that is surrounded by high-end development. Day after day, traffic drives by and the animals suffering go unnoticed there. Until this month, that is. Through the persistent efforts of some members of Florida Voices for Animals who were contacted about the deplorable conditions there, a rescue was orchestrated. Take a look at these pictures of Glory, the horse many drove by and ignored. Luckily, ONE PERSON started this chain of events just by speaking up. The following is an account of what has happened since.

If you have anything to spare, please consider sending a donation today to help Horse Protection Association of Florida with Glory's recovery. No amount is too small. Their contact information is listed below.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CARING………..

Glory is 5 years old, he is a registered Thoroughbred gelding. The pictures were taken today. He had a rough day yesterday, he slipped going into the trailer and along with the stress of the trip his knee is very painful this morning, much more than it was yesterday. It is an old injury along with a new injury on top of the old one. He was out all night eating grass which he loved and he was fascinated with the other horses, especially the miniatures. He is eating very well, he ate all of his soaked orchard & alfalfa cubes that contained antibiotics and pain medication and he is eating from his bag of orchard alfalfa hay in his stall as I write this message.

He has been started on Equine Leg Magic, a product with an excellent reputation for helping all types of leg injuries. It takes a month or more to see results but we need to keep our fingers crossed and say some prayers that it helps him. Finding him a home will be easy if he is sound, however if he does not become sound, he will be much more difficult to adopt as he is a big boy and will be high maintenance.

Horse Protection Association of Florida is a 501c3 charitable organization founded in 1990. We are currently caring for 59 horses with 6 more fostered out. Horses are adopted out every month but not as quickly as we would like. The main reason is that all of the potentially rideable horses are either untrained or require further training by an experienced rider with training experience. We have hired qualified people to train as many horses as we can afford to but it takes time and money to pay the trainers.


Donations have been down this year and funds are precariously low, we desperately need donations at this time. We are not accepting any new horses because money is so tight and we are over capacity at the farm, but once I saw Glory I could not leave him where he was which I know those of you who saw him can understand. We would be very grateful for any donations no matter how small, they add up and truly make a difference. We have a Pay Pal link on the site but remember that they take a percentage of your donation out of it, with checks or credit card donations we receive the full amount.
