REMEMBER THE FOAL WHO WAS DRAGGED WITH BALING TWINE? Well, look at her now – SAFE AND SOUND!






Most of you are very familiar with the shocking photos of the 2 week old estray foal who was dragged with baling twine into a holding pen…

If you missed her story – and the story of her herd of Virginia Range wild horses – click here.

REMEMBER THIS FOAL?...

REMEMBER THIS FOAL?…

All of us were outraged.

We had to do something!

So several groups circled the wagons and rallied the troops – including The Horse and Man Group.

We did the impossible… we passed the hat, arranged for housing, arranged for transport, arranged food and Coggins and vetting and then sent representatives to the feedlot (in foul weather) to attend the auction and purchase all the horses – and transported every last one to safely.

Wow!

The smaller herd groups all remain together except a few youngsters who were adopted privately by vetted townspeople.

Hooray!

Some more images that outraged so many...

NEW PICS!

I heard from the rescue who is caring for the little foal and her herd, that the weather has been awful.  However, yesterday it cleared long enough for them to snap a few pics of “Diamond” and her dam in their new, SAFE, digs.

Here she is!  Little Diamond! Bigger and fuzzier and SAFE!

Here she is! Little Diamond! Bigger and fuzzier and SAFE!

Nice, eh.

This feels really, really good, doesn’t it?!

The wrong was righted.
We made a difference.  A big difference!

YOU ALL ROCK!

Here she is, lazing in the sun with her dam.

Here you can see the range they share now - safely.
