Terrified . . . starving . . . her leg throbbing in pain from the deep sore extending down to her bone . . . the horse had little chance for survival.
If disease and hunger didn't take her, it would only be a matter of time . . .
Bought at auction by a backyard butcher, this gentle horse, along with 14 cows, 32 goats and sheep and 4 turkeys, was slated for slaughter.
But through the intervention of a determined group of people, this little horse's fate (and that of her fellow prisoners) changed. In April 2012, after months of work with the LA County Animal Care and Control and the District Attorney, The Gentle Barn rescued the animals and brought them home to safety.
They would never face abuse or the threat of butchering again. The Gentle Barn welcomes these animals into a place where they are loved and protected. And now Sun Chlorella is supporting their life-affirming work.
How Sun Chlorella Supports The Gentle Barn's Animal Rescue Work
Since May 2012, Sun Chlorella has been providing chlorella powder and REJUV-A-WAFERS for The Gentle Barn's 160 animals. And in July, Sun Chlorella donated $50,000 towards creating a special quarantine and treatment center for animals needing extra care. The Sun Chlorella Healing Center will be sited in a rehabilitated barn that is currently used to store hay.
"When you visit The Gentle Barn," adds Futoshi, "You can feel the vitality created by working with such a respect for life. We're honored to be a small part of this."
Hiroka's Bold And Beautiful Recovery
To mark the support Sun Chlorella provides, we were privileged to name the horse rescued from the backyard butcher. Her name is Hiroka, which means "bold and beautiful child” in Japanese.
Today “almost a year after her rescue, Hiroka's story is not only about rescue“ but about renewal.
Truly . . . as her eyes have taken on new life . . . as her coat thickens thanks to the good nutrition . . . and her movements change from being orchestrated by pain and fear to the movements of a healthy horse . . . Hiroka is bolder and more beautiful than ever.
For short, we call her Hero.
Holistic veterinarian and Sun Chlorella advisory board member, Dr. William Farber, D.V.M., is a witness her recovery. "Once standing as a hollow, scared, severely debilitated animal, Hiroka now looks happy, healthy and on the mend thanks to Sun Chlorella and to the hours of devoted care from the staff at the Gentle Barn. She is a symbol of how this type of help can heal an animal's mind, body and spirit."
