Oy… how many of you saw the viral video of the poor, sway-backed, ancient horse, out in a field, starving?
Yup. It happened near to us in Southern California. Neighbors had been trying to feed him and get help for him, but his owners did not want to surrender him. Two rescues continued to contact the owners and offer help. Finally, they surrendered him.
The previous owners did not realize he needed to have his teeth looked over. The poor gelding could not chew the alfalfa that was offered to him.
Here is a still from the viral video.
WE WERE ASKED TO HELP!
I had seen the video but didn’t realize that he was so close to home. When I received the call, I said YES. The two rescues wanted to make sure he was vet checked, had farrier and dental exams.
All Seated In A Barn will be taking care of Shanghai and we have offered to pay his first round of vet, dental, farrier and feed bills!
This feels so good.
A NOTE ON HIS PERSONALITY FROM ALL SEATED IN A BARN – Pics after ONE WEEK!
I asked the rescue if Shanghai was well enough to show his personality, and this is what they said:
He is SO sweet!! He is literally the sweetest old man – such good manners – loves attention, loves molassas oat cookies
LOOK at him after only a week of soft food and medical attention. His teeth were done yesterday.
