I have some rescue storys. Here are my top 2.
Bubba, Gypsy and Maci, rescued from a barn in london Oh, starved and ate all the wood in their stalls, no water, we went up to Gypsy, and then we couldnt leave the others, so we called the vet out after getting them home, and was told Gypsy would have died from starvation if we wouldnt have got her, that vet said she only had a couple days left, Maci turned out to be Gypsys baby so she was starving and nursing a foal, Bubba was suppose to be 4 years old and was a stallion, and when the vet went to geld him he said he was closer to 16.
Gypsy was 300-400 pounds underweight, Bubba was worse.

Gypsy 2 weeks ago:
In my opinion theres no better feeling them rescuing a horse.
Electra and meli :
I bought electra from a amish auction for 140 dollars she seemed like a kind gentle yearling, untill we got her home, and she was terrified and dangerous, she would strike and kick out at you, and to make it 10 times worse she had shipping fever that had to be cured right away, and lice. a month went by after day afterday working with her there was no results, so i turned her out and decided i would let her come to me since we cured her shipping fever and lice, and she did she came right up to me about 2 weeks later, but didnt want touched so i worked with her slowly, she is know a loveable yearling that loves her tail brushed and her chest patted. Meli wa worse then electra has a small yearling she only weighted 200 pounds and Electra weighted 400, everytime she would eat chewed up grass would come out of her nose, so we had the vet out and he said it was caused by her shipping fever so we cured it and chewed grass was still coming out of her nose, so we kept up with the medicine and one day it just went away and she was a jolly yearling again. Meli lives with a 13 year old and is going to be a how horse. For Hollywood Dun It Great Grand daughters you would have though they would have been taken good care of, but sadly just like many other horses they weret, Electra is now my Fall Yearling Prospect.
Electra the day she came home, right before she went crazy.
