The KyEHC is a tranquil 70+ acre farm and safe haven for equines in need. Our horses come from a variety of backgrounds. Some arrive here surrendered by their owners and others have been rescued from abuse and neglect. Once healed and (re)schooled these wonderful horses are available for adoption to become someone's best friend and partner.

This week on "Tails" from The Center",  We are showing our awesome farrier Thad Gouge trimming a pony's hooves that were so badly overgrown they started curling up, so we decided to call him "Curly Fries", he has since been adopted. At one point there was a stick in the hoof wall that had abscessed and the hoof grew over top of it encasing it in the sole itself. 

DON'T FORGET--Our Director or other staff members will answer questions sent in by you, our viewers, which can be submitted via the contact form at the bottom of the home page or on the Contact Us page. 

We will do this weekly, so start sending in those questions!!

Feel free to ask about our staff, our horses, our facility and/or our mission!

Remember there are never any stupid questions!
