Libby was born with a hoof pick in her hand and was practically raised in a barn. She and her mother raised appaloosa horses and were always helping horses in need. Her first rescue was a little Grey Miniature mare named Duchess. After meeting Wendy and having firsthand knowledge that most equines end up in bad places, she jumped at the chance to join the board of Serenity Horse Rescue and provide even more help to horses in need!
