BUFFALO GAP, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – ‘Torrential rains’ have destroyed a large portion of the fence at an Abilene non-profit’s horse pasture.

Camp Able tweeted pictures of the damage to their property Thursday, saying “take a gander at the damage done by the recent torrential rains to the fencing at our pasture!”

They also pointed out that Elm Creek is currently flooding over Pecan Street, so safe passage to their facility is hindered. 

The Buffalo Gap area saw several inches of rain and severe storms Tuesday and Wednesday. Hug-A-Root Family Farm, also located in Buffalo Gap, sustained wind and hail damage.

They’ve been asking for donations and volunteers to help them replant their crops! 

Camp Able does both Equine Therapy and Horse Rescue work in the Big Country. 

A description of their Equine Therapy practice reads in part, “Equine therapy is used extensively by trained physical, occupational and speech therapists to improve the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people with special needs. Through the gait of the horse, campers develop core muscle strength and stimulate cognitive and neurological pathways that improve balance and coordination.”
