Debbie has been around horses for over 55 years. She is grateful to be part of the HNR team and bring her skill sets to assist us all. She says it can sometimes be heart-breaking, but it is also amazing to see the transformation of the many sick, abused, and starved horses that have been helped through HNR. Debbie's quote, "Let a horse breathe on your heart and you will never be the same."
Deborah has always loved horses but it wasn't till about four years ago that horses became an integral part of her life. She starting volunteering at HNR and fell in love with all the caretaking and nuturing the horses needed. When Rusty, Mr Wiggles, and Louie came into the shelter Deb found her purpose and passion to help heal and in part, she says it healed her. She ended up adopting Rusty who is our feature story on the rescue and Rusty now is a healthy, grandchildren-loving 27-1/2 year old horse! HNR appreciates all Deb takes on at the shelter from feeding, grooming, cleaning, volunteer training, to now being a board member. You rock Deborah!
Denice has had horses since she was three years old and particpated in 4-H as well as showing horses when she was young. She obtained her first rescue horse 12 years ago and has been hooked on helping horses ever since. She is looking forward to begin to show horses once again now that her daughters are in college and says she is "proud to be involved in an organization that does so much for horses in need". When HNR contacted her about a personal photo, she mentioned it was hard to find one, but we located this one of Denise (in the pink hoodie) helping our auctioneer at the 2016 Help a Horse Day event. Thanks for all you do Denice!
