Starving horses getting help

By: Cole Miller

A Malcolm woman is asking for your help so she can care for six starving horses. 

Cheryl Larkins has grown up around horses her whole life.

“That's my therapy, my horses,” Larkins said.

When she heard about 10 starving horses near her home in Malcolm, she knew she had to step in,

“To see a horse in need, you can't turn your back on them,” Larkins said.

Last month, we told you about these horses. They were dumped on a neighbor's land, but were gone the next morning. At least two of them are pregnant. After coming to an agreement with their owner, Larkins is taking in six of them.

“Our goal is to fatten them up, take care of them so they can be re–homed to somebody that's going to take care of them,” Larkins said.

To make that goal a reality, she's asking for your help. Donations, supplies and most importantly, hay. She says she doesn't know how someone could let this happen, but she's glad to help.

“They think they're doing the right thing, but sometimes what you think is the right thing isn't,” Larkins said.

She's picking up the horses Saturday morning with some help from friends and family. They're still in the process of getting an account set up at a local bank to take donations, we'll get that information out as soon as we have it.
