The horse population at the Humane Society of Ventura County’s shelter in Ojai grew by one with the birth of a filly from one of the 37 severely neglected horses that were rescued from a Lockwood Valley ranch last fall.
The filly, named Lindi Lu in honor of a Humane Society staff member, was born at about 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, reported Jolene Hoffman, director of the shelter.
“One of our caretakers heard all of the horses just screaming,” Hoffman said. “She went out to check, and the filly had just arrived.”
“It’s just started,” Hoffman added Monday, noting that at least nine other of the rescued mares have been confirmed pregnant, underscoring the nonprofit shelter’s ongoing need of funds for the care of all the horses.
