On this day that we honor the mothers in our lives, we think about the compassion, kindness and generosity that comes with motherhood.
Pictured are Gatlin and Paryss, two horses whose lives were saved by Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravena, Ohio. Happy Trails rehabilitates and provides adoption services for horses, ponies, pot-belied pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, sheep, goats and cows who have been removed from environments of abuse or neglect which resulted in animal cruelty charges against the people responsible. A NAVS Sanctuary Fund grant was awarded to provide medical care for eight rescued horses, including the pregnant Paryss. Her adopter received a special surprise when Paryss gave birth to her foal, Gatlin.
