Just about everyone of our rescues has a lengthy story behind it. We try to take in VERY needy rehabs only. After working as a vet tech, and because I keep the rescues here limited to 6 at any one time I feel I have the time and knowledge to take the ones that may be too much for others to take.

I'm finding myself wanting to ask each poster what happened to the horse to cause it's condition.  Perhaps we can add a link to the original thread for folks to go read or maybe include a short description if a horse has an injury, for example. 

This thread is a great idea.  It is positive and encouraging.

It's so hard to believe that was an actual tail! The neglect to get that way....  :o(

I remember the stallion save now. Apache was beat up on by the other(s), right? He's healed perfectly. You can't even tell he had those horrible wounds.

I shudder to think the total poundage he was underweight - bravo!  and bless you!

Even as underweight as he was, he never lost that gentle face, did he?  He looks so good now. Almost not the same horse!

I got a dapple grey when I was still in high school (reeaallly long time ago!). Whenever I look at the before and after pics of him, it's amazing. In my youth I was not able to see just how underweight he was when I brought him home. All I saw was his kindness and beautiful color. Thank goodness I saw that. Never know how he would have ended up without good food and a little bit of love. Okay, LOTS of teenage girl-type love!  LOL  Dapple greys are one of my favorite colors.

This grey girl you saved really shines. She's definitely happy. You can see it in her face.
