Hay Horsey People! my name is Laura Bierly, and for as long as I can remember, I have loved horses.  I wanted to give back to horses and to the equine community by starting my very own horse foster program called "Stranger's No More" ... so I did. This Patreon is my main source of crowdfunding for this program. Right now I am funding this project out of my personal funds and housing my foster at my family's farm. But one day I hope to have my own farm to do all of this. So what is the "Stranger's No More"  Program? Well, maybe I should tell you the story of Stranger's No More, a 4-year-old filly who was "vanned off" after she bowed a tendon during a race. 


Stranger's No More (AKA Luna) is a 4-year-old Off The Track Thoroughbred who was rescued by HERD. She arrived to HERD extremely malnourished and in a very unhealthy state. She was so bad that she collapsed when HERD got her off of the trailer. She was rescued from slaughter several months before when her injury occurred and she was vanned off. She was dropped off at a vet's office for quarantine by a lady who adopted her, but the lady never came back for her. The vet was not paid and as a result of receiving no money Luna was left out in a back stall with minimal food and water. She starved for several months. HERD found out about Luna being in distress again and paid to get her to South Carolina. So she ended up being rescued from slaughter again after 5 more months of abuse. So Luna was abused for about 7 months before she finally got to me. This is what she looked like, too weak to stand... 



My hope is that one-day racehorses will be treated ethically and fairly.... I hope one day all of the slaughterhouses will be shut down for good. But for now, I am doing what I can one horse at a time. 

Please support me on my journey to save horses from slaughter while we educate the equine community about slaughterhouses and the racehorse industry. If you decide to support me and this program financially I will share my 40 plus years of expertize as a Hunter/Jumper focusing on Natural Horsemanship with you and other bonus content that I don't upload to my other social media channels as a thank you. All money pledged will go directly to the fostering, care, and medical expenses for the foster horses I have in my care. Thank you so much for your support and I look forward to getting to know you and your horses. I know that there are other people passionate about horses who will feel compelled to help me. Just one dollar a month from 250 people and I will reach my first goal, which is to pay for Luna's feed. My hope is to retrain, rehome, and relove her because she hasn't felt love for a long time.
