A Kentucky non-profit, Old Friends, has provided a retirement home for Thoroughbred racehorses since 2003. CBS’s Mo Rocca visited Michael Blowen, the organization’s founder and a former film critic for the Boston Globe. Blowen decided to form the organization after news that Kentucky Derby Winner, Ferdinand, had been killed at a slaughterhouse. Currently the 236-acre farm homes over 200 rescued and retired horses.
