Blowen located Our Revival at Keen’s farm. He offered to give the veteran mare a lifetime home at Old Friends.
“I was just tickled to death,” says Keen.
Botty called the rescue team “guardian angels.” He contacted a friend in Arkansas who had a horse trailer and had the lucky mare delivered to Old Friends. It was a tab he was more than happy to pay.
“She’s beautiful,” says Blowen at Old Friends in Georgetown, Ky.
“She’s a fabulous chestnut with a white blaze. She’s very comfortable with her big paddock and eating as much as she wants. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She’s already out in the pasture with her girlfriends and she’s having a ball.”
