Let's see those rescue horses!

I'm not sure if a thread like this has been this already, I searched and couldn't find one so thought it would be okay to start my own.

Let's see your rescue horses, before and after pictures!

I really love the idea of rescuing a horse and hope to be able to do so in a few months.

Green Broke
Here is a work in progress right now. We call him Rascal and have no idea what breed he is.

When we got him:

Six months ago (should have taken more photos!):

Look at all that hair! He had about three inches of it. It hid a lot...for instance, the space between his jowels...you could easily slide four fingers standing upwards into that space and not touch anything. His face was a skull.

Definitely not the worst case I've seen, but he was getting there. For a long time he couldn't even trot for two or three minutes without getting winded. He was taken from behind a foreclosed home.


All he needs now is (a lot ) of muscle.

I don't have any great "before" pictures buuuut here is my adopted horse before and now, months later, in his transition period.

I adopted him for free with grown out feet and toes, seriously rotated feet and what we worried was heaves. He was grade 3 of 5 lame, had a lack of muscle and his owner had long since abandoned him.

Now he is spoiled and has attention and vet care and love and his feet are on the road to recovery. He no longer staggers around and everyone around the barn is blown away by how well he is doing

I wish I had some of willow when we first got her, but sadly I don't.

Try to picture this chubby thing as a yearling with ribs sticking out, a missing eye, and covered in scars and blood. This is her as an 8 year old a few months ago :)

Wow! Everyone's horses' transformations are amazing!!!

Are PMU's considered rescue? He was rescued from slaughter in Canada and I bought him.
I don't have any pictures of him when we got him as a frightened, scrawny, 14.3 hd., 11 mo. Old with wads of winter coat on him (computer crashed, hubby has yet to figure out how to retrieve the pictures!) but here's one of us when he was 2 1/2. My head was still taller than his back!!

Now he's 18 hds and a pocket pony!
