before and after

I wanted to share some cases of before and after from the horse shelter where I'm volunteering.

Bianca - 15 years mare. She was abandoned for over 2 months without food or water. She has some problems with the left hind leg. She is not fully recovered, she needs some more pounds.

Doinita - 11 years old mare. She was hit by a truck and had a humerus fracture. She was in foal when she came to us so we suspended her in a harness. She had a perfect healthy filly that now is 2 years old.

Felix - 15 years old gelding. He has a pulmonary chronic disease. He is a pasture ornament now.

Rita - 16 years old mare. She has some problems with the front ligament. Maybe sesamoid bone fracture. I think that she has arthritis too. She is obviously a pasture ornament.

Staicu - 12 years old gelding. He is sound. He was just underweight.

Decebal - 7 years old gelding. He is perfectly sound now.

If you want to share some pictures and cases you are welcome.

Wow, such an amazing job you do, it just sickens me that people let horses get into such a state, if you can't care for it you should just sell it or put it down. That first mare seems to have a very loooong back, does it look like that because of how her back legs are?

You deserve some type of award or recognition. I bet you sleep very well at night knowing all the horses you have helped! I just don't understand how people can allow animals to get to such a terrible state, it is so inhumane.

boxer : Thank you for the support. Bianca has a long back from what I can tell, but she is still underweight and she lacks muscle so it can be an impression.

sarahver : thank you. The only recognition is the horse's love. I adore to be near the horses and make all I can for them.
It's beyond my understanding how can someone bring a horse in this state, or in a worse state. I can't understand it.

I have some pics of our rescues somewhere. We usually only take a few photos for the police and keep only one. When the horse goes to its new home, we destroy the picture. Its silly symbolism but it feels nice to get rid of those pictures and know that they wont end up in that situation again.

BTW you did a great job with those horses! Its terrible but we get so excited when a horse like Decebal comes in...that just needs weight!
