Dawn was saved from the kill lot in December- terrorized and abused, with a mutilated reproductive tract from having so many babies. She was traumatized from the kill pen, skin and bones, beaten and bloodied.

It's taken the better part of a year to get her healthy and rehabbed, and once healed she has become extremely affectionate, showing us that at one time, somewhere, someone loved her. We saddled her recently, knowing she was lame but just wanting to see if she had been trained at some point - and she had.

How can people be so cruel? They've used her up and thrown her away like so much trash - when she is a living, breathing, gentle creature that has sacrificed her body and will to human whim.

Dawn is very crippled and riding her would cause her pain. We also had to have her surgically repaired from all her birthing trauma. If anyone breeds her again it will kill her and the foal.

But she still can love. She can still show people and especially children how to groom and lead, pickup feet and care for a horse, and most of all how to give unconditional and compassionate love.

Dawn has served as an equine therapist in our Equine Psychotherapy program, and would excel at that work in any program. She is an easy keeper but needs a companion horse or donkey to bond with, as her vision, like all albinos, is weak.

Dawn is healthy, vaccinated, and in perfect condition. Will you offer her the beloved home she has earned. Humans took everything from her - it's time we gave it back.
