Hope's Legacy holds first-ever Help a Horse Festival

By  | 

NELSON COUNTY, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- The Hope's Legacy horse rescue hosted its first ever Help a Horse Festival on Sunday.

Hope's Legacy is a nonprofit rescue that receives horses from all across Virginia.

Most notably, they received several of the malnourished horses from the 2015 Peaceable Farms raid in Orange County.

One of them was Donkey, who was nearly put to sleep after the raid.

Hope's Legacy says Donkey is doing just fine, and they want to spread awareness on how far they reach into the community.

"We do not get any government funding," said Maya Proulx, with Hope's Legacy. "When we get large seizure cases in, we don't get any funding from the counties where the horses come from, it's all private donations and fundraising."

Hope's Legacy says the other animals brought to them from Peaceable Farms are doing much better.
