Your last day off?

Sometime in 2006.

The lawyer runs an animal protection organization. She makes her farm available to livestock in need. Animals that cannot be placed in a private space are allowed to spend their lives there. Working with animals requires not only a lot of energy and time, but also money: a horse costs about 560 francs a month.

Five horses confiscated in the Heffenhoven case also found a new home here, and others from this case were placed in private homes. They have now recovered well. The mare will still react very sensitively if you want to touch her legs.

Others show intermittent phases of intense stress, during which they react anxiously and withdraw. However, the periods of such sequences are getting bigger and bigger. Learn more in the video above.
