According to the National Day Calendar website, today is National Horse Protection Day, which the website states was created to bring light to the plight of horses in America and beyond and help the thousands of unwanted horses in this country to find forever homes.
"The horse has a legendary mystic on the American culture. It helped to forge a nation and yet despite that many go unwanted, abused or neglected," states the website. "National Horse Protection Day is about addressing those issues."
There are a number of places you can visit to adopt a horse. One is right in Central Square -- Sunshine Horses on County Route 12. Check out its website at sunshinehorses.org or go to its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SunshineHorses/?fref=ts
