Winter is a beautiful painted mare that came to Masleña Rescue Foundation several years ago. She wasn’t donated, but the result of Jeff’s direct intervention. Winter, blinded in one eye, was destined for the Mexican rodeo to be used as entertainment. Her disability made her “disposable” and an ideal candidate for abusive forms of tripping, roping and other rodeo activities that have been outlawed in other countries. When Jeff saw her he decided to immediately intervene and bring her to the sanctuary.
