Rescue Story Shilo

This is Shilo arrived May 22nd 2009, we have a lot of work ahead of us. She is the sweetest mare, she is underweight, her hooves are bad, and her teeth are a mess. She is also covered in massive scars, what this little horse went through we will never know.She was abandoned in a pasture in Northern California, she was lucky the lady was kind enough to take her in and feed her till the hauler arrived to bring her here to us. This is a perfect example of what can happen if you turn your horse loose because you no long want or can afford to take care of them. They are unable to take care of themselves because they have been taking care of by humans their whole life, they are set free to die a slow death, this is how i see this. Shilo has a lot of love to give someone, she is starved for attention, the kids you can see in the photos pet her, i let them in with her and she is as calm as they come. Our mission now is to get her straightened out, get the weight on which will be a slow process but we will get there. I had to remove most of her mane, did that without a halter and even cut a bridle path and she just stood there.There will be more on Shilo in the days to come we have a battle ahead of we intend on winning.
