PALOMINAS, Ariz. (AP) — Inflation is kicking everyone hard and the people who run a horse rescue ranch in southern Cochise County also are feeling the pain too as prices for everything from feed to medication continue to skyrocket.

But lately, Horse’n Around Rescue Ranch And Foundation organizers Theresa Warrell and Steve Boice have been confronted with the heartbreak of horse owners who have been forced to give up their beloved animals because they can no longer afford to feed them or care for them medically.

The non-stop rise in the cost of hay and bag feed, for example, as well as medications that are required for some horses, has made keeping such animals as companions and members of the family untenable, Warrell and Boice said.

At the ranch where 65 horses are being cared for, Warrell said she receives calls almost daily from desperate horse owners who are asking if Horse’n Around will take their equines.
