A lone horse, later named “Lightning,” was found abandoned on a road near Homer last fall, thrown away like some heartless people throw out a dog.
He was skittish and in pain from a broken tooth and went instinctively to a nearby fence where a kinder person took him into their pasture to keep him from being hit by a car.
And that’s when Colbert Veterinary Rescue entered the picture.
Board member Jon Ainbinder, a Christian life counselor, and his wife, Mary Beth Ainbinder, heard about the horse’s plight and made plans to pick up the disoriented creature from the person who rescued him, but who could not keep him for the long term.
Lucky horse, because Ainbinder is also on the board for “Turn-The-Page,” a new equine therapy ranch in Sandersville, near Milledgeville.
Ainbinder contacted his friend and one of the ranch’s founders, Sophie Parker, who agreed to take the animal, if the Ainbinders could get him there.
