Terry recently dropped off Hazel at her new home. Here is what Terry had to say:

Jackie and I were so blessed to be there the day Hazel was picked up and today we got to help settle her in to her new home at Hooved Animal Rescue of Thurston County. She truly has come full circle from a scared trembling mare to a healthy, balanced, trusting friend. It was beautiful to watch her meet her new friends and come check in with us. As if to say thank you for all that SAFE did to make her life better.

There was absolutely ZERO fuss along the fence meeting the new herd. She is an emotionally healthy mare after coming through the SAFE program and the new friends could tell. Their herd leader Spirit took right to Hazel. He groomed her neck and even licked her! His owner is the property owner Bev, and she said he never is that nice right away. Generally he protects his herd from the new horses that arrive from HARTC. All good signs for a very happy and safe group of horses to call her family.”
