Washington Cty Hoof Neglect Quest
Help Horses With Extreme Hoof Neglect

Three emaciated horses out of Washington County, MD, had the worst hoof neglect our organization, vet and farrier have ever seen! The emaciated horses had more than 3 feet of excess hoof growth. One miniature horse was euthanized on site; one miniature stallion and one pony stallion were safely transported to DEFHR.

Funds are desperately needed to provide critical and rehab care. Please DONATE NOW!
