Solo Vino's Story *WARNING* Graphic Photos
Solo Vino was found 3/3/09 on a locals door step. Solo Vino had a head trauma and serious ring bone when she discovered him. The lady who found him, said he walked right to her and laid his head on her chest. When she took him to the vet, it was discovered, he was beaten in the head with a 2x4. He had a 3 1/2 inch hole in his head. It's thought that his previous owner tried ot kill him after they couldn't afford to pay for him any longer. So they beat him and left him out in the desert to die.

Solo Vino is now at Equine Voices and he has fully recovered. He still has issues with his ring bone but he is still running around and doing great!

Now for the pictures:

He is such an inspirational horse. After what he's been through, it's shocking to see him love on us so much!

I'm glad he got to find someone who DID care and helped him!
Good luck in his future (and happier!) life! :)

Whoa! My eyes just about popped out of my head! He's looking so much better!

Yea I know! It's like a complete turn around for him. He's so happy and I wish everyone could meet him!

Oh my gosh! Sometimes I really wonder why people have to so completely stupid! I am SO glad he was able to find someone who cared and now has a future. I wish you could take him nationally, and share his story! Maybe you'd be able to prevent this from happening to another innocent horse. Good Luck and give him a kiss for me :)

I know. People are seriously insane. I wish i could share his story internationally, but that would be up to Karen(rescue ranch and his current owner).
I know a lot of people know about him through out the state.

omg that is so sad. How can people do these things. This is what happened in a city not far from where I live. Two B.C. residents charged with starving, hanging horse.

I am glad to see that he is doing so much better. Kudos to you for volunteering there. I don't know if I could do it, I would be cryinbg all the time (like I am now).
