BOTETOURT Co, Va. (WDBJ7)A farm in Buchanan says they saved a pregnant horse from slaughter, and now they have big plans for her and her foal.

New Freedom Farm is Lois Fritz's idea of paradise. Lois Fritz, Owner, New Freedom Farm, said, "We searched for two and a half years for this perfect land."

After moving here last November, she wanted to share it as much as she could. Two months ago, she brought in Mabeline.

“It fell into place fantastically,” she said. Fritz says the then pregnant horse was set to be slaughtered. Her complicated birth came less than a month after getting settled in her new home.

BUCHANAN (WSLS 10) – A local nonprofit is asking for help so it can continue to care for horses in need.

New Freedom Farm in Buchanan is currently caring for six horses, which is expensive and won’t possible without more money.

“When she came off the truck it was like her freedom ride that she was here and she was going to be okay,” said New Freedom Farm Founder Lois Fritz.

Rescued horses Martha and her colt, George Washington, are adapting to their new surroundings. Fritz works to rescue horses, like Martha and George who were saved from a kill pen a day before slaughter.
