De Soto, WI – The American Standardbred Adoption Program (ASAP) was hit by a wall of water that destroyed a pasture and took equipment.  “It was devastating. A 15-foot wall of water swept away a round bale feeder and broke fences in one pasture where three horses were quartered in a 150-by-300-foot pen with a shelter,” founder Sue Wellman said.  “The shelter survived, but we can’t find a water tank that also was sent bobbing down the swollen creek.”

Wellman said she had no idea the rescue had flooded until she arrived at the property and found horses standing in 3 feet of water.  “We were crying and apologizing to the horses.”

Wellman founded the organization 23 years ago to help find off the track Standardbred quality homes.  Rebuilding the rescue will take time and money.  “I can smile today because everything survived, although the organization, operated by a small number of volunteers, needs hay and monetary donations.”
