WAYNESVILLE, NC (WLOS) — Animals relocated from a Florence flood zone are now in greener pastures. Sunday night, STAR Ranch rescue took in two friends with a special bond — a blind horse and a donkey.
Their special bond has already helped them adjust quickly to life on the ranch.
“So we give them a dignity of life here,” said Karen Owens, owner of STAR Ranch.
Weeks after Florence pounded the Carolinas, there’s a sense of calm after the storm.
“You’re a good girl, lucky girl, yes you are,” Owens said to Wonder, a white horse.
“She’s a blind mare,”Owens explained.
“Hi Wonder. You’re a wonder!” she said to the horse. “And it is a wonder how these things work out, you know?”
She can’t see her surroundings, but Wonder seems to feel at ease.
Wonder and her devoted sidekick were transported by a volunteer after their farm near Wilmington flooded.
