Many of the 185 horses at Duchess Sanctuary were saved from the incredible cruelty of slaughter. A herd of 89 former PMU mares were 15 minutes from being loaded onto a truck heading to a sale in Iowa, where the majority of them would have been purchased by meat buyers, when they were rescued.

Today those mares and some of their offspring live at Duchess. Horses like Felina, Maddie or the many others who are so admired by fans on our Facebook page every single day.

Abandoned horses like Waldo
