Horse Rescue

Curious Molly

Let me introduce you to Molly. We got her a few months ago from a horse rescue organization. This photo was taken the day she arrived at our place, slightly underweight but already heavier and healthier since her seizure by law enforcement. Her history is unknown. She’s an older girl, over 20 by a vets estimation, and appears to be highly trained. Molly has become more trusting of us as time passes. She now allows me to cuddle her face, a sure sign of acceptance.

People have lost their jobs or are underemployed. Some just walk away and leave their horses. Others turn them loose on roadways. Horses even appear in pastures. Right now almost every horse rescue organization in the country is overwhelmed. The overload is staggering. If you can help a horse, do an online search for your local rescue organizations. I know they will appreciate anything you can do to help. Molly would agree.

    Gorgeous! She’s divine. Having seen her improvement in other photos since her rescue, I know she’s in a good home.

    Unfortunately, horses and many other animals are meeting swift ends due to the recession. I’ve read that animal shelters are euthanizing cats and dogs at historic rates because they can’t keep up with the influx of abandoned and relinquished animals. It’s very upsetting.

    I realize a lot of horses are going to slaughter right now. People who love their animals can’t even feed themselves, much less a pet of any kind. When the chioce is eat or keep the family pet or favorite horse there are no winners. Molly is just a big pasture ornament but she’s blessed us with her trust. We enjoy her company and she enjoys ours. Thanks for visiting.
