Luckily, there is someone out there who cares about giving these older workers a peaceful and dignified retirement. Road Trip host Marc Istook headed out to Anza, Calif., to meet a very special horse lover, Casey O'Connor, who operates the Golden Carrot Equine Rescue. O'Connor, a former legal secretary, decided to follow her heart's passion and has now devoted her life to rescuing and caring for older and disabled horses. The animals can depend upon a "forever home" at the rescue, and do not have to worry about working again if their condition does not allow it.
O'Connor, who runs her rescue with the help of charitable donations, currently has more than 40 horses under her permanent care, all in various stages of life and ability. She even employs a special equine chiropractor to help with their work- and age-related issues. In this Road Trip segment, you'll be able to observe an aging horse's back being adjusted!
