Brittany was just searching for a project horse. When she went to a local auction, she fell in love with a beautiful young colt. Unfortunately, the little colt was snatched by a kill buyer.

That day, Brittany came home without a horse, but with a passion and a drive to help save horses from abuse, neglect, and horrible deaths

Amy fell in love with horses as a little girl, and always dreamed of owning one. However, she didn’t get to live this dream until later.
