The Saddest Thing Ever!! My Rescued Miniature Horse!

This is Rascal, we bought rascal about 4 months ago at the Unadilla auction in NY. We paid $75 for him. Rascal is a 4 year old registered American Miniature Gelding. After he did his 30 day quaranteen, we brought him home, clipped him (he had about 5 inches of hair covering his entire body) Under the hair we found a pathetically skinny little horse, he was emaciated, crooked, and so dirty and covered in dander we couldn't tell what color he was! He also had a nasty eye infection. The vet took blood and fecal samples. All of his bloodwork came back ok, but the fecal samples showed that the worm count in this poor pony was about 500 strongyle eggs per gram!! So we put him on a carefully planned out deworming program and prayed that he wouldn't colic (he didn't) And all of our hard work has paid off!! Rascal is now a happy and healthy little man, I'm going to let him hangout and get strong for a couple more months, then I'm going to start getting him ready to show in hand next year at some local shows!

When we first got him



After he was clipped and dewormed and just started gaining some weight





A little over a month ago





And last week!!
