Marcia is a lifelong horse lover. Her passion is everything "horse." Marcia has been horse addicted since she was a year old when her mother set her on the back of a Budweiser Clydesdale. That started a love of horses that never went away. She spent her early years with horses as much as she was able.
Marcia moved to Texas in 1990, in order to afford her lifelong dream of owning horses and a ranch. Marcia rescued her heart horse, Sunny, 20 years ago. He is the reason she rescues horses - to give back all that Sunny has given her.
For the past 20 years, Marcia has been privately rescuing horses from auctions, bad situations and more recently, from kill pens.
