This group of people are amazing!!

This group of people are amazing. Every state needs an organization like the Missouri Equine Rescue Service. They are the phone # you always want to have but never want to call. Well I had to call them this spring and they saved my Clydesdale Sam who was down in his stall and I had no way to get him up. I had no idea why he was down. If it wasn't for I had no option but euthinasia. He is 19.1 hands and 2300 lbs. He is 18. My last Clyde I had to put down because he was down in the stall and there was no help available.

Sam is now doing fine. I know because of his age and arthritis he is living on borrowed time, but I'll take it. MERS gave me 6 more months with him so far and a chance to say goodbye.
Here is the link see to his rescue and lots of other amazing rescues of horses, cows and camels. And they do it all from donations.

I took some photos of him after his rescue.
Thank you MERS TEAM
