Although the Equine Rescue League depends on volunteers and private donations to help horses in need of our services and to maintain its farm shelter, the real heroes of our stories are the horses themselves.
Regardless of past mistreatment, abuse and neglect, these horses continue to trust, and even enjoy human company and interaction. Each one seems to believe that the next stage in life will be better than the last...the next caregiver will treat him with kindness and respect.
It is always inspiring to see how quickly a horse can recover from total neglect once appropriate care is administered. The convalescent period is tackled with a "gusto" not seen in most human patients.
These stories are dedicated to those victims who would not resign themselves to an unpleasant fate.
How can we give up when they do not?
