8 Year Old Donates to Horse Shelter

Some horse trainers in Upshur County are giving a big hand to a little East Texas lady, for her completely un-selfish birthday wish.

In March, we told you about 14 horses that were nearly starved to death and the equine recovery farm that was pleading for public donations to help the animals recover.

8 year old Brenda Myrick made a donation of one-hundred-and-fifty dollars to the recovery center, money she and her friends collected.

Brenda's birthday was July 21st, but she told family and friends she didn't want presents. Brenda instead got her family and friends to help her raise money for the horses held at Safe Haven equine recovery farm.

She hopes that her act of charity will inspire others to help abused and neglected animals.
