An abandoned horse would be dead if not for some big-hearted people in Rockcastle County. Now those folks are asking for your help to get that horse healthy again.
Kim and Steve Brinson took the Horse named Destiny three weeks ago. "She was taken to a stock auction, when she didn't sell she was dumped on U.S. 25...like a piece of trash, or bag of garbage",says Brinson. Rockcastle County authorities contacted the couple who are members of the United States Equine Rescue League. Since then they have been nursing the horse back to health.
She was starving, severely infected with worms, and has a serious leg injury. The Brinsons are hoping to raise the money to nurse her back to health, get surgery for her leg and get her adopted.
But Brinson wants something more, to catch the people who left Destiny to die. "I'd like anyone who has information on her previous owners to contact the Rockcastle County Sheriff".
But Brinson says if you can't do that he'd like for folks to visit the link below for the United States Equine League. There, you can donate toward her recovery. Brinson says make sure to earmark the donation "Destiny In Kentucky".
