Rescues Spirit - Spanky


Despite his difficult beginning, with a whole lot of careful nursing, care, and excellent veternarian intervention, Spirit has totally changed into a happy and healthy adult horse.

Spirit and Kellie have a good time out in the pasture.

Spirit was an extreme case of abuse. A bad breeder who gave no care and when he became ill, offered no help. When he arrived at our farm he weighed 70 pounds and was 3 months old. He had a Bacterial infection, pnemonia and was malnourished.

Spirit is now 9 years old. We do everything that we can to keep him comfortable as he travels the road into his old age.

Spirit here at his arrival to live with us.
Note the 'calf head', a sign of extreme malnourishment.
