Chili Cook-off Raises Money For Injured Miniature Horses

People were cooking for a good cause Saturday. The staff and families of Quail Ridge hosted a chili cook-off to benefit Hearts and Hooves of Lubbock. Two pit bulls attacked the horses in January, and the organization lost two horses and now face large vet bills.

Saturday's cook-off was one of the first major outings for Honor and Sparkles, two of the horses still recovering from serious injuries. Kauli Sparks, the director of Hearts and Hooves, says they are slowly rebuilding thanks to the community's generosity.

"It's just been incredible the outpouring of support and things like this. We're excited we can have horses here and hope to do several more things like this," says Kauli Sparks, Hearts and Hooves of Lubbock. 

The horses are normally used to provide therapeutic healing to people across the South Plains, including the residents at Quail Ridge. Sparks hopes the miniatures will be able to continue their therapy visits in the near future.
