What a wonderful story. I too have rescued an older horse. He is a 35 year old quarter horse gelding. He was quite thin when I found him and was living with a herd of cows. The cows were fat, it wasn't a case of the owners not feeding this felow. It was a case of not knowing that an older horse needs special care. I have had him since August and he is doing well now it took deworming, having his teeth done and extra (good) feed to get a nice layer of fat over his ribs again. Out cold winter weather has been a little hard on him but I keep him blanketed and housed with only one other horse so that he doesn't have to compete too much for feed. One of my 9 yr. old lesson students took him for a two day trail ride this summer and absolutely had a blast with him. He is as steady as a rock and can out walk most other horses on the trail. Thankfully he has never been foundered and his hooves are in very good shape after a couple of farrier visits.
