Jo Anne Normile with Scarlett, granddaughter of Secretariat.
Tonight’s guest is Jo Anne Normile, author of the critically acclaimed book, Saving Baby, which is featured in the Feb. 2015 Reader’s Digest.
Jo Anne owned a promising granddaughter of the great Secretariat, but she turned her back on racing when she learned how brutally the horses are treated, their lives more often than not ending in slaughter. She went on to found CANTER, the most successful Thoroughbred rescue in the country, saving more than 4,000 horses during her tenure as executive director. And she now serves as president of Saving Baby Equine Charity, which saves all horse breeds from the brink, including wild mustangs and burros. Jo Anne even cares for two wild burros, adopted from the BLM, at her farm.
Jo Anne’s dedication to horses includes research on equine self-mutilation syndrome and compulsive behavior in formerly wild/feral horses, which resulted in her co-authoring studies that appeared in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Journal of Applied Research in Veterinary Medicine. She was also cited for her contributions to a research paper published in Food and Chemical Toxicology about the public health risk of selling horsemeat laced with phenylbutazone, or “bute,” routinely given to Thoroughbred race horses.
Jo Anne has been written up in every publication from The New York Times to Horse Illustrated and has appeared on CNN Headline News and numerous other television programs. She joins us tonight to tell about her odyssey from racing enthusiast to horse rescuer.
Tonight’s radio show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. and Director of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation
