Melanie Sue Bowles started the Proud Spirit Horse Sanctuary 21 years ago, but it wasn’t just the neglected and abandoned horses that found a safe haven at the Sanctuary. Over the years, Melanie and her husband Jim Bowles have opened their hearts and doors to several cats, pigs, dogs and donkeys. In this slideshow, you will meet the two latest additions to the Proud Spirit family: pigs named Mimi and Nina.
