Update on Starvation case

Here is an update on my little rescue. Dancer was one of 33 horses in the Roodhouse Illinois starvation case. I picked her up in April of this year. As you can see in the first picture (taken at the death camp), she was nothing but bones and hair. Dancer is doing great and has gained a lot of weight. She is turning into a beautiful little horse!

Wow!! She looks fabulous! Great job!
Isn't it a wonderful feeling when you bring them back from such dire circumstances?

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

She looks great! Wonderful job!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
