Starving horse becomes happy and healthy girl with new owner’s love and care

April 1st, 2021

A horse named Rosie was having extreme difficulty surviving without human intervention.

The horse could not get enough sustenance where it lived and was found reaching under an electric fence for grass. The story of the unfortunate horse has been featured by The Dodo and can be found on their YouTube channel.

The organization Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue step in to save the animal.

The workers at the rescue home found the starving horse while searching for horses that were reportedly in a bad situation.

A woman who worked at the rescue home named Deanna told The Dodo that it broke her heart seeing the horse in such a desperate situation. The horse wandered outside the fence with two other horses and risked getting hurt just so it could have something to eat.

The workers named the horse Rosie.

“Rosie was just depressed. Her spirit was very, very low. The three of them were just so beat down, but we brought all three horses home,” Deanna said.

Rosie was taken to the rescue home along with the two horses. Thanks to her rescuers, Rosie would soon be a healthy horse. Her life would certainly be different under the care of Deanna and other people at the rescue home.

Rosie was given fresh hay and water at the rescue center. The rescued horse stayed in a stable and Deanna carried a small stack of hay for her. The caretaker assured the horse that the stack of hay was all for her.

Deanna expressed her concern over the condition of Rosie.

She noticed that the newly adopted mare needed nourishment and care. And, on Rosie’s first physical checkup, a veterinarian named Dr. Clas could easily trace the outline of the ribs of the rescued horse because the animal’s body was very thin.

The doctor even said that it was apparent that the three horses taken in by the rescue home had been “malnourished for a very long time.”

The workers at the rescue home were determined to make Rosie a healthy horse. They knew that Rosie had to be quarantined for 30 days while in recovery.

The mare required nourishment. The condition of her skin also needs to improve.

If Rosie recovered after the month-long quarantine, she would then be transferred to a large field where food and water would always be available. She would also live among other horses in the new home.

On her way to recovery, Rosie had one other person to take care of her. The person’s name was Amanda. The kind woman regularly visited the mare and helped take care of her.

She knew Rosie even before she was adopted, and she was very eager to see the mare make a full recovery. She told The Dodo that she had a close bond with horses and she wanted to focus on taking care of horses someday and possibly establishing her own rescue home in the future.
