THE STORY:

Helen and Anne are a bonded pair of Belgian Draft Horses. The team used to work on a farm in Connecticut until their elderly farmer could no longer afford to keep them. The two were then sold off and eventually ended up awaiting slaughter in a pen of mud and feces about six inches deep. In addition to these sufferings the two mares are both blind due to a disease called Uveitis that went untreated. Helen is completely blind, and Anne is blind in one eye with diminished eyesight in the other. These two mares were brought to the attention of Smokey Chestnut Farm shortly before Christmas, and plans were instantly made and funds gathered in order to bring these two mares to safety. Since the pair are bonded, the splitting of them at a slaughterhouse would have surely been an incredibly traumatic experience for the two blind mares. The pair now reside at Smokey Chestnut Farm in safety, but due to their disabilities, a new form of shelter needs to be constructed in order to ensure their safety. Smokey Chestnut Farm would be honored to recieve a donation to aid in the construction of this new shelter, as well as to help pay for the medical care and attention these two mares need as well as aid in the payment of their general care. Smokey Chestnut Farm will be forever greatful for your helpful donation, as will Helen and Anne.
