Kami and USHO came to my rescue when I was frantically trying to find placement for Jewel, the foundered Belgian that I took in to keep her from going to Shipshewana. Kami drove all the way to Michigan to pick Jewel up, and took her back to Ohio. I am eternally grateful to Kami for giving Jewel a chance. - Theresa Gray - Grayhorse Ranch
