Amy and Roo
In 2016, the first season at Blue River Horse Center, a 3 year old Friesian mix named Roo was one of the 15 horses to participate in the BRHC educational programs and horse foster care. For me, as a volunteer at the Center, it was love at first sight. Roo, now fondly called Liberty Roo, is a big part of my family’s and my lives.
At 3 months old, Roo was abandoned at the Delta Horse Sale Lot. The buyers took her mother and left the her tied to a post. She was immediately taken to Dreamcatchers Horse Therapy in Olathe, Colorado, run by Kathy Hamm, who lovingly took care of her for three years.
As a result, Liberty Roo is very affectionate and loves people. My life is so much richer because she has come into my life. Our story is a true example of what Blue River Horse Center is all about, bringing people and horses together!
