When Christine found at at 4yrs of age
that horses could be sold to slaughter and people would eat them in
other countries, she vowed to help them escape that fate.
Throughout her lifetime she has held to that solitary mission.
Join Amaryllis and help to change the
world for the horses.
Be Blessed aka Bay
