Winsted ranch saves 29 starving horses

truhaven.rescueWINSTED, MN – When dozens of malnourished horses, ponies, and mules were removed from a farm in southern Minnesota the end of November, 29 were sent to Truhaven Ranch in Winsted.

One month – and plenty of TLC later – the equines are making a comeback.

“It’s amazing how tough they are,” said Anne LeClaire, a Truhaven board member.
