At least one year -- they may still do it -- they put in a standing bid of I think $1000 or so for all the horses at an auction, to be sure that none of them would go for meat. They then donated 17 of the younger, potentially rideable horses to the SRF. Five of them were mares that came to the farm where I was keeping Willie at the time. The Hanover Shoe people are pretty awesome. :)
That is great to know! I know they are not the only ones out there doing good things for STBs, but they are certainly one of the best. :)
I knew that Hanover Shoe supported retired horses, but didn't know about the auction rescues. Just when I fear that the world is full of cruel and selfish people, somebody proves that it isn't.
