GYPSY LADY has died. She is the horse that was free to roam at The Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre; meeting and greeting visitors, joining in with the horse tours, and spending her days with children of the Pony Club.
Gypsy Lady came to the centre in October 2010, just two days after another horse, Star Chance, sadly died.
At the time it amazed all those at the Rescue Centre as Gypsy immediately stepped into Chance’s role in every way, even having a similar appearance, making it seem like Chance had never left.
Gypsy passed away exactly two days after the first anniversary of Chance’s death.
Prior to her rescue, Gypsy Lady was in a horrendous state; owned by gypsies she was kept in a structure made from orange crates where she was unable to even lift her head, and was deprived of food and water.
Elche police were so distressed on discovering her that they turned to Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre in fear she was soon to starve to death.
Gypsy Lady had a whole year at the Rescue Centre, knowing the feeling of being cared for and truly loved, and showed affection and gratefulness in return.
There are many horses like Gypsy that are still suffering and need help.
The Rescue Centre’s Open Days take place on Wednesdays and Sundays, 1pm to 4pm, where hot food and refreshments are available and visitors can meet the horses and hear their stories on a horse tour.
