Five starved horses saved in subzero weather

Starry Skies Equine Rescue and Sanctuary


As the temperature in Michigan plunged to 14 degrees below zero, the 11:00 p.m. news headline was the story of six abandoned horses, starving and freezing.  In fact, one was already dead on the property – sadly, rescue came too late for that poor being --when the animals were seized by authorities.  Saving Baby Equine Charity president, Jo Anne Normile, was waiting to see what rescue was on television removing them and it was none other than Starry Skies Equine Rescue and Sanctuary whose board members had attended a book signing last year and a rescue that never refuses a horse if a confiscation case! They always find room! Founded by attorney, Tricia Terry, they are a volunteer organization and their facility is located on rolling acreage that has been in her family for generations.


When these poor horses were abandoned and left to die, YOU HELPED!!! Saving Baby Equine Charity which receives some of its funding from book sales and your generous donations brought three horse blankets and a check to Starry Skies Equine Rescue and Sanctuary to help with the care of these emergency intakes. Appropriately, a Monroe, Michigan couple was charged with cruelty in the abandoned horses’ case.


Pictured here are the five horses and also a picture of Tricia Terry, the founder and president of Starry Skies, Jo Anne Normile, co-founder and president of Saving Baby Equine Charity and Cappi Marshall, Saving Baby Equine Charity equine care volunteer with one of the lucky surviving young horses. Thank YOU for your support of our rescue so that we may be there to help others during emergency situations.
