• Deb Hoyt | Season 2 | Episode 15

April 02, 2018

Deb Hoyt is a FarmHer with a great love of horses.  She first found her love of horses at just two years old and has carried that through her life to where she is now, operating her non-profit, Healing Hearts with Horses.  She takes in horses that need a home, rehabilitates them and gets them ready to be adopted back out to a home where they will be loved and taken good care of. Deb is a strong woman, always working, and with a heart of gold.  In addition to running the non-profit, she has to work off the farm full-time and even pick up extra shifts just to make ends meet and to make sure all of her horses have the feed and care they need.


 

My visit to Healing Hearts with Horses on a brisk early spring morning started with Deb as she went to feed the chickens and other birds, paying special attention to the one legged rooster that isn’t Mr. Friendly.  We then went to the horse barn where Deb started doling out hay and feed to the very hungry animals that were eagerly waiting for her. She explained to me that she received word that the horses needed a home, following one of the largest seizures of horses ever known of in the U.S.  She drove her trailer to South Dakota in the dead of winter to do what she could and bring a few of the starving and sick animals back to her farm. As she worked her way through all of the horses in her care, making sure each had the proper food, water and nutrients, her love of animals was evident.  

While not always an easy path, this FarmHer’s dedication and attention to caring for animals in need is clear.  She works tirelessly to serve the animals and use them to enrich the lives of others in her community. Deb Hoyt is a FarmHer with a heart of gold.

We must stand up, together.  FarmHer lives within the culture of agriculture.  I have said it 100 times if not 1000, agriculture is a culture and like every culture, it needs diversity to thrive.  Diversity in color, gender, geography, age, thought, size…diversity in everything.  This is our culture and it is on all of us to stand up and speak out against all types of racism.
