Lucy is an approximately 2 year old Saddlebred. She leads and ties well, and has started groundwork training. Lucy is a very sweet, gentle horse and does not behave in a stereotypical "marish" manner. She enjoys being scratched and petted, and will stand for hours to be groomed. When she is given treats she takes them softly and chews them with her eyes half closed with delight! She has been broken to ride, but would benefit from some more work under saddle as well as on the ground. Lucy has not known a lot of kindness in her life, and relishes positive attention. She came from an extremely abusive, neglectful situation and is still learning that she doesn't have to run everywhere when under saddle and that no one is going to beat her for not moving as fast as possible. She is very petite, but at two years old still has some growing to do. With a little bit of finishing, Lucy would make a great horse for a rider of any age.

Company / Facility:
Sabine Humane Society -
Documents to incorporate The Sabine Humane Society as a 501 (C) 3 corporation were filed on September 9, 1997, by Shannon Clements; Kathy Merten; Martha Bass and Tracy Conerly.
The Sabine Humane Society was formed to help the abused, deserted, and thrown away animals in Sabine Parish, Louisiana. The SocietyÃŠÂ¼s main goal was to build and operate a shelter for that purpose. Finally in October of 2010, that goal came to fruition when our Facility opened.
The funds for perpetual operation of the facility have always been a major concern. In 2008, the Society continued to lobby the Sabine Parish Police Jury for assistance. The Jury finally agreed to place a 10-year parish wide 1.5 millage property tax referendum on the November 4, 2008 general election ballot. A few volunteers worked hard promoting the tax to voters in the parish. Their efforts paid off when, by a margin of 286 votes, the citizens of the Parish supported the tax.
The proceeds of this tax are collected annually, with the first collection starting in November/December of 2009. It is estimated this tax will yield approximately $130,000 to $140,000 annually. Along with the joint efforts by the town of Many, plus the assistance from the Sabine Parish SheriffÃŠÂ¼s Office, these funds help pay for the operation of the facility.
