Last month we showed how Two Bright Lights photographer Catlin Humes uses her photography to help dogs and cats in animal shelters find homes. Today we’re excited to share how another of our photographers, Vendla of Vendla Stockdale Photography, is doing good for animals in need. After encountering two neglected horses at a sale barn in 2006, Vendla co-founded an organization called Spirit Wind Horse Rescue to give horses who have been abused, neglected, or in danger of slaughter a second chance at life. Since then, the organization has developed into a thriving non-profit with over 30 volunteers, 16 foster homes, and dedicated trainers determined to treat each horse with respect and love. In her photography, Vendla shows the beauty and spirit of these amazing horses, and makes a statement against branding and abuse.
Thanks to Vendla for sharing these powerful images with us!
