Cadence was born on the streets to a single homeless woman, and by the time she was three years old entered foster care due to extreme neglect, violence, and malnutrition.
“It was hard for her to trust people,” says Holly, Cadence’s adoptive mother. “She hoarded food because she was so deprived of nourishment as a baby.”
When Cadence met Ruka, Hope Reins’ beautiful black draft horse, the little girl discovered her soulmate because “Ru” shared a painful past of starvation and abuse as well.
“Cadence told Ruka she loved her,” says Holly.
“These are words she’s never been able to speak to anyone else.”
