It's really rewarding. Since I'm the more "horsey" person in the fam, I help her much as I can with the non-medical stuff. In a good sense it really tests my equine health knowledge, and forces you to think outside of the box. Same for all of the non-medical stuff. They really make you use EVERYTHING that you've ever learned anywhere, and even come up with your own stuff. Sometimes natural horsemanship works, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes "traditional" methods are best. Most times it's a combo of both. But I will admit, I've seen things that no one should ever have to witness.

I recommend and hope that anyone who has the capability (and knowledge) to rescue AT LEAST one does. Especially those who are looking for pasture buddies. A lot of times, these "will never be ridden again" horses surprise you, and once they are back to health are even able to go on the occaisional ride.

There need to be more people like you and your mom in the world! I helped rehab an elderly gelding who came in with a body score of 1.5. One of the most rewarding experiences of my life =)
