Horses are my passion and my life. I train horses at Horse Plus Humane Society’s Tennessee Shelter and my goal is to help you find the right horse. I will give you a full disclosure on any horse you are interested in. You will have access to a 1 hour complimentary lesson with me and your new horse at the time of adoption. I will also be available if you have questions about your adopted horse in the future. – Kristen Breakfield 931-306-6623 | kristen.b@horsehumane.org

Auction Rescue This Tuesday!

Hello Everyone,

There is an auction this Tuesday and most of the horses will be sold for slaughter if we do not attend this auction and save as many as we can.  We have so far raised enough funds to responsibly rescue and care for 3 horses.  There are typically 100 or more horses at this sale, all needing help.  It is very hard for us to go to these auctions, and know we cannot save everyone, but for every life we do save, it makes the world of difference for that horse.

Please watch this video, it shows some of the reality that we face when we go to auctions.  With your support, we can give horses at this upcoming auction a bright future.  We cannot do that without you, please donate now.  Every dollar really does add up to a huge amount that can save a lot of horses. Watch the video, click here.

Again, I want to thank you so much for your support, I know we can count on you, and with your donation, you truly are a horse’s hero.

From the Slaughter Pipeline to a Unicorn

We have rescued thousands of horses from the slaughter pipeline.  When we meet these horses at auction they look so pitiful and sad, heartbroken, as if they know it’s the end of the line.  One such horse we met was Liberty.  At the auction we looked into his face and we saw no hope in his eyes.   Thanks to the support from a donor, Gail, we were able to rescue Liberty from that slaughter auction.

At our shelter Liberty settled in with the other horses we rescued from auction in a quarantine pasture.  We didn’t know what his future would hold, but we were going to do everything in our power to give him a bright future.  We didn’t know just how bright it was going to get…

His adopter has a photography business and it wasn’t long after he was adopted that she decided he would be the perfect Unicorn.  Since he loves being around people, this is the perfect job for him!  The photos are so adorable and stunning!  Liberty does have a few dark speckles, but with a little photo touchup he looked perfectly white.  With a purple tail.

The neat thing is, Liberty is a great ambassador to all the girls who come to get their photoshoot with a unicorn.  Here is a horse that was thrown away into the slaughter pipeline like he was worthless, like a piece of trash.  Now, thanks to people just like you who support our rescue efforts, he is living a magical life with a princess around almost every hay bale.

We know we can’t make stories like this from every horse we rescue, but every horse we rescue is so precious in their own way.  This Tuesday we are going to an auction, and with your support, we can save horses just like Liberty and give them a bright future too!
