Kentucky Family Takes In Horse, Looks For Support

Some people living in Rockcastle County with a soft spot for horses are being credited with saving the life of a starving animal.

Now they are asking for your help to get the horse healthy again.

Kim and Steve Brinson took in the horse named Destiny three weeks after she was left for dead off Highway 25 in Rockcastle County.

She was sick, starving, and had a huge gash on her leg.

The Brinsons say they are working with a national rescue foundation to get the horse adopted.

But, before that can happen, she needs a very expensive leg surgery.

That is where the Brinsons hope the community can help.

    Gayle, please go to our website at: as our Indiana branch of USERL would be the one who would handle foster homes in Kentucky area. Goebel - please also see that same website for a physical address for donations. Thank you to all who are offering to help and a huge thank you to Steve and Kim for saving Destiny on that lonely night she had along the roadside. If anyone has any information on Destiny's former owner, please step up and do the right thing. Not only did this owner do wrong by leaving Destiny abandoned on the road, that decision could've turned more tragic by killing a family driving in a car down that very road. Things like that are not excusable. I am hopeful someone will step up and give the information to the Sheriff or USERL. People can remain anonymous. Please, if you know something, do the right thing.
