Pony Varvara has been turned over for meat by the owner. The fact that the animal had been trained in riding for the rehabilitation of children with special needs did not even stop the father of a disabled child. The man needed money.
Varya was rescued by Oleksandra, a Ukrainian woman. For more than six years now she has been buying cattle and other farm animals at the slaughterhouse and putting them in her shelter in the village of Krasiv.
