Beverley Hughes: When I started working to save horses in July of 2013, I intended to petition congress, create and sign petitions, dive into social media, protest, and do everything I could to save horses. I had no idea that I'd actually ...be SAVING horses. It started with my two abandoned Mustangs, then a friend developed health issues and had to move from her horse property and needing to find a home for a 12 year old gelding quarterhorse with respiratory problems and a 9 month old rescued Navajo filly. So now I have 4 horses. I don't need any more horses and I truly cannot afford any more horses. But then came Merle.

Merle is 25 years old, partially blind, and has melanoma. His owners cannot take care of him. He is being boarded right now and they cannot continue paying for the boarding, they are having to physically move and there are employment issues. And no one wants to take Merle. His future is bleak if I don't take him. But with his health issues, his vet bills are going to be substantial, and feeding a fifth horse is not something I can really do comfortably. So I'm asking for help to save this horse.

His current owner describes him: "I know when something isn't right with him by the way he nickers or neighs, I can tell if he is worried, stressed or just happy. He has the biggest heart. He always seems full of life and energy and I have never seen him down and out, for a 25 year old he is very stout, muscular, and strong. I trust him better than any person."

This horse deserves to live his final days in peace and in a loving environment.

If you can help save Merle, please do. This is not a charity, I am not a 501(c)3 and you will get no tax write off for what you donate. I'm just a woman trying to save a horse that doesn't deserve to die yet. He's got too many good years left in him and he deserves to live those years in peace and love.
