This week, Allison Roecker took a road trip to a little town in southern Central Oregon where she met lifelong cowboy, Len Babb. He has found a way to combine the lifestyle he loves with his passion for art.
Every Sunday on Central Oregon Daily’s new weekly feature, Origin Story, Allison Roecker introduces us to a passionate person who is making their dreams come true.
More than 75 neglected horses were rescued from a Terrebonne ranch last Sunday and they are now receiving care at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Oregon’s Rescue Ranch as they make their long road to recovery.
Central Oregon Daily’s Allison Roecker was at the ranch today to check on their progress.
The Sheriffs Office is still accepting donations to help provide care for the horses. If you’d like to donate, visit www.Sheriff.Deschutes.org
All donated funds will go toward veterinary care, farrier work, and other costs associated with the care of these horses.
Just two weeks after more than four dozen dogs were rescued from a property in La Pine, the Deschutes County Sheriffs Office is dealing with another case of possible animal neglect in Terrebonne.
Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan has the details on how nearly seven dozen horses were rescued over the weekend.
One of the most pressing issues now with so many horses suddenly occupying the ranch, outside of caring for them, is feeding them. That is why the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is requesting that any community members who would like to help by donating extra hay reach out to them at www.sheriff.deschutes.org.
For Friday’s Source on the Scene, Central Oregon Daily’s Chris Biggs took us to Redmond for the High Desert Horse Expo at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds Expo Center.
