Kentucky Equine Center Needs Donations To Help Malnourished Horse

Posted: Updated:

JESSAMINE COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) Jessamine County's Kentucky Equine Humane Center is in need of support as they nurse a neglected horse back to health. 

Life hasn't been a beach for Tahiti, a small, malnourished, four-year-old stallion. 

"You know if I was this horse, I'd rather be on a beach somewhere than a cold barn," said Executive Director Karen Gustin at the Kentucky Equine Humane Society. "That's how I named him Tahiti."

Gustin says that Tahiti came to the center because his owner wasn't taking care of him. She said that his condition was one of the top five worst she's seen.

"It's pretty amazing that a horse can get this bad and then come back from it," she said.

Now Tahiti is getting all of the tender love and care he needs and all the hay he wants. He is fed every two to three hours. Tahiti has been at the center for about a week and is already making great progress. She hopes that in a matter of months, he'll be as healthy as a horse should be.

All the care costs money for the center, which relies only on donations. 

They need your help to make sure that Tahiti gets the help he needs.

"We really appreciate it, he really appreciates it and I think he's gonna be fine once he gains some weight and feels better," said Gustin.
