by | May 7, 2024 | American Horse Council

May is Adopt a Horse Month, and according to the Equine Welfare Data Collective, there can be anywhere up to 40,000 horses waiting for adoption in the United States each year. From off-track Thoroughbreds to retired broodmares or even donkeys or ponies looking for a new pasture, it seems like you can find an adoptable horse, pony, or donkey to fit whatever your needs somewhere in the United States.Megan and Julie talk with Kelsey Buckley and Andrea Manley with the United Horse Coalition to highlight the work these two groups are doing to highlight equine rescues and sanctuaries across the country and how prospective horse owners can prepare themselves for adopting a horse, pony, or donkey.

In addition, Julie interviews Melissa Kitchen, President of the Equine Network Foundation, about their mission and focus, as well as their A Home for Every Horse initiative.

In this month’s Legislative Update, Julie updates listeners on the Farm Bill and shares some of the enticing topics that will be discussed at the Annual American Horse Council Conference and National Issues Forum, which will be held June 9-11 in Washington, D.C.
