Welcome to the WindChill Legacy
On Saturday, February 9th, 2008, we rescued a nine month old Walkaloosa (Tennessee Walker - Appaloosa cross) at a farm in the area. Frigid conditions mixed with high winds (30 mph, wind chill of -50F) finally overcame the little guy's already weakened condition. Suffering from dehydration, malnourishment, hypothermia and frostbite, we loaded the colt we've been calling WindChill into one of our horse trailers and raced for home hoping that we could save him.
We could not.
The experts warned us from the beginning not to get our hopes up, because the odds were just overwhelmingly stacked against him. We never told WindChill that. We accepted each day with him as a gift; we watched his progress in awe - as did the entire nation. This little horse became a beacon of hope for so many who had lost their faith in humanity. He taught us that no matter what happens in your life, no matter how unfair, you can still have faith and you can find love to carry you to a better place. He found the good in the world.
To his memory we dedicate our efforts to combat equine neglect and abuse. Welcome to our site where you can read WindChill's story, learn more about the foundation, meet like-minded people in our forum, read about our current projects and find out how you can help.
