Heroic Sue Morrow Saves Horses from Death or Abandonment

July 23, 2015

In October 2010, photojournalist Sue Morrow volunteered to muck the stalls and stock hay at a rural barn in Athens, Ohio, called Last Chance Corral. Little did she know that this barn was one of the primary safe havens for non-pedigreed nurse mare foals and adult horses who were rescued from being killed or abandoned after breeding season.

Morrow soon began documenting the barn and its efforts to rescue non-pedigree foals who did not demonstrate “championship potential” in a film called “Born to Die.” The documentary was recently funded via Kickstarter in January with a mission to bring awareness to what Morrow calls the “cruel secret” within the breeding industries.
