The racehorse breeding industry is competitive to the core. Dog breeders get mares to birth as lots of foals as possible, but their only objective is to acquire the valuable milk from the nursing mothers for raising competent thoroughbreds for races.
As the unwanted foals are dumped and left to die, Victoria Goss, creator of Last Chance Corral, comes to their rescue. She supports these newborns and helps them survive without their mother. With her dedicated efforts, she has appeared a much lower mortality rate of young foals than the industry average.
Victoria has actually been sheltering horses since she was 12. Her heart bleeds for these abandoned foals, however financial restrictions hold her back from having a competitive team around. She uses the help of volunteers, when available, but mainly maintains the sanctuary on her own.
Unfortunately, the help available to these foals is completely disproportional to the huge amount of horses being bred and disposed. She needs to turn away many foals every day because of her limited resources, which just breaks her heart. Victoria’s selfless goal has tugged at our hearts.
