Horses need tender loving care, how you can help

FOX New Mexico

National Help A Horse Day inspires others to provide the care horses need to survive.This year, Hyatt Tamaya Resort is organizing an inaugural Horse Rehab Week fundraiser to support its equine rehabilitation program.

From the website:  People have a misconception that a rescue horse always shows signs of abuse or neglect, but most do not. They are not always skinny or broken down. Like abandoned dogs and cats, their “scars” are often on the inside. Horses are highly emotional creatures. As prey animals, they are very sensitive to their environment and keenly intuitive. They have distinct personalities and varying responses to how they are treated. Choctaw arrived in his beautiful splendor, very confident but with an eye condition that requires more medical attention than his owners could provide. He is demanding of attention and a very vocal horse who makes his wants known. When in the pen outside the hotel for a couple of days, he brayed at each passing car and paced back and forth to get attention to what he wanted.
