Ashland, Oregon is a town of 21,000 that has a lot in common with other small towns across America. It also has qualities that make it truly unique. Home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Southern Oregon University, people from various backgrounds and places have chosen to call Ashland home.
As a photographer, I thought it would be a worthwhile project to document the varied aspects of Life in Ashland.
Life in Ashland
Monday, December 10, 2012
Yesterday my wife and I attended an open house at Equamore, a sanctuary for injured, neglected, or abused horses. An unfortunate fact of life is that there are these animals that for one reason or another must be rescued from dire conditions. The Equamore Foundation, headquartered here in Ashland, takes in these poor creatures, patiently and lovingly treating and rehabilitating them back to health. The foundation relies on a lot of volunteer effort and funding from donations to do their good work. The open house was a way to publicize their efforts and introduce attendees to the horses.
