Daisy ~ Standardbred Mare
Daisy is one of three horses we had to purchase to get them out of a horrible situation. Penelope was also one of the three. Daisy was pregnant when we took her in. She’s a very gentle, quiet mare who used to earn her living as a race horse. When she couldn’t race any longer she was “given away” to a good home. This person couldn’t keep her and she was passed on to another home, which is where we found her and rescued her. After several years with us, Daisy moved to a foster home to become a pasture mate for another horse. Five years later, Daisy returned to the sanctuary with her new friend and has now bonded with our two donkeys.
Sadly in July of 2021 Daisy and another horse were struck by lightening and died instantly. Rest in peace sweet Daisy.
