Toblerone "Toby" is a Tennesse Walker Paint who Lifeline rescued from a killpen in September 2018. After a month in quarantine, we brought Toby home and started his rehabilitation. He was sick and thin when we got him, but with rehab and training, he quickly became a favorite for many in the barn. He was always the first to greet you at the gate and check all of your pockets for a treat. Toby was adopted and transported to his forever home on 4/30/19!
Koda is an aged Quarter Horse type mare rescued by Lifeline on June 20, 2017. Koda was found at a killpen in Pennsylvania. When we got her she was very underweight and several of her teeth were rotting, most likely due to malnutrition. She had a dental abscess which burst, but was seen by an equine dentist and a vet and made a full recovery. Koda found her forever home in April of 2018.
Moonspell is a 2012 OTTB gelding by Great Notion. He raced for 4 years with 26 starts. He ran well but was starting to be raced more frequently with little rest between races. In December of 2018 we were contacted and asked if we would take him if he was retired from the track. We agreed and waited anxiously while he ran his last race, and won it. He was sore and spent at that point and we were relieved that the trainer kept his word and allowed his to retire from the track. Moonspell was given down time at a farm in Howard County, Maryland over the winter and came to Lifeline in the Spring to begin retraining. Our plan for Moonspell is to have him serve as an Ambassador to the rescue.
