Virtue is quite a story. She was purchased by a woman at a Washington feedlot, but the woman never showed up to claim her. We were told she was an Appaloosa mare about 32 years old. When she arrived at the sanctuary, she was depressed, undernourished and suffering. We have since discovered that Virtue is actually a tattooed Thoroughbred, about 24 years old. Virtue is flourishing under our care, and enjoying the nurturing and attention we love to give her.
