The weather in the Northern Hemisphere during the winter is nothing short of brutal. Cold winds, piercing rain, and snow can take a toll on infrastructure, let alone animals living outside. Which is why no living thing should be left out in the bitter, winter cold.
But that”s just what these horses were subjected to. Luckily, though, one mare and her baby were rescued just in time. Who knows what would have happened if they were out there for just a few more hours…
A very concerned neighbor made an emergency call when she noticed the neglected creatures literally shivering to death.
A veterinarian arrived on the scene and feared that Macy”s heartbeat was too weak to be revived…
After having their vital needs met at the vet, Macy and her baby, Loca, were brought to Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Norfolk, U.K.
Finally they had a warm, safe place to sleep.
Six months later, Macy is as good as new.
And Loca is too!
Not a rib or hip bone in sight.
