The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. ~Maya Angelou
A sweet and sensitive 12 year old mare, April first came to CCHR as a neglected and badly injured 4 month old foal with her seriously ill dam. April's mama had done all she could for her filly and in her attempts to keep her baby fed, her neglected body was unable to survive the damage from their previous ordeal, and she passed away during her first month at the rescue while under medical care.
After being treated at CCHR and surviving the potentially life-ending injury and leg infection, April went on to be adopted by and live happily with a family for many years.
Sadly, April's home, as happens so often with horses and other animal companions, was broken apart by family difficulties. Although we were deeply saddened by the upsetting change in her home situation, it was never in doubt as to where April would come back to live; her first safe and loving home, CCHR.
April's affected leg does not really allow for riding but we think she would be a great companion horse or might even be trained to do some light cart work.
If you would like more information about sponsoring or adopting April, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
