In this difficult economy, many animals are without homes and finding new ones has become more difficult than in previous years. This problem is not unique to horses and can be a special challenge for farm animals that have become family pets. “Smooches” the cow is a ten-year old Holstein who lost her home and simply needed a place to live out her life. While she is not an Appaloosa, we have a special soft spot for these sweet, family cows and made the decision to try to help. We awarded Smooches the status of “Honorary Appaloosa” and we are happy to report that she has found a wonderful new home. Our sincere congratulations to new mom, Taby, on the newest member of her family!
