SAUGERTIES, N.Y. -- There’s a happy update for two horses at Catskill Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties.

The sanctuary rescued Ashley and Pliers in November from a farm near New Paltz. They were going to be put down because the owner couldn’t take care of them.

Ashley, who is blind, was in poor health and not expected to live long. Her son Pliers was over-protective of her and became aggressive when approached by people. But now they are living happier, healthier lives.

You can meet Ashley and Pliers, as well as the other animals at Catskill Animal Sanctuary, by attending the sanctuary’s weekend tours through October -- as well as on July 4.
