Last Stop Horse Rescue at Fort Knox This Weekend
Horses seem like a natural fit for a Civil War Memorial, so this weekend an organization that helps horses and their owners will be set up at Fort Knox. Last Stop Horse Rescue will have miniature horses and plenty of literature about the organization, Saturday and Sunday.
Last Stop Horse Rescue is a non-profit organization out of Prentiss that works to make sure all horses are well-cared for. Joyce Pomeroy runs the organization along with her sister Nonie Jenkins. Currently 21 horses reside at the farm, and that can get expensive, so donations are always welcomed.
Joyce says,"Each month we have a tractor trailer flatbed back into the driveway at the rescue and there are 17 round bales. And that's about six hundred dollars a month to purchase those round bales, and besides that we have our vet bills and grain. We go through quite a bit of grain up here."
She says horse lovers will want to stop by Fort Knox on Saturday."The exciting part of this is our miniature horse ambassadors that we like to bring to these events. Honey, Tate, and Babe, will be there for everyone to meet."
They will have t-shirts, hats, and wristbands for sale, with proceeds benefiting the organization. That’s going on this Saturday and Sunday at Fort Knox from 10am to 4pm. For more information, log onto the organization's website.
