The horse that was suffering so horribly that we have been investigating and trying to get help for has been humanely put to sleep and buried on the property. We are so thankful that her suffering has ended, but are terribly saddened it took so long to get her the help she has needed for years.
Reporter Alex Apple with Fox 17 in Nashville is truly a friend of the animals. Today he spent hours following up on the story about the emaciated horse with horrible knees. Alex spent the day working on a very special story that will air at 9:00 pm CST, you can watch it live – click here.
Alex also talked to Tennessee Representative Johnny Shaw who is in the Agriculture Department and shared with Rep. Shaw the law regarding horses in Tennessee. Rep.
