Elderly Horse Is Rescued And Given Sanctuary - His Story Is Heartbreaking

Arthur had worked the fields of a New England farming community for 30 years to reap food from the land that would feed others. When he was too old to work, he was discarded and abused.

He was united with Max when they were sold during an auction show. Though the two elderly horses weren’t trained for riding they were forced to ride humans around on their backs. That wasn’t working out well so they were being prepared for high-kill auctions by being denied food so they looked emaciated, according to Little Things.

The two horses were on their way to be sold for their meat when Cindy Daigre of Ferrell Hollow Farm Senior Horse Sanctuary stepped in. She saved the two horses who were transported to their sanctuary in Tennessee.

By then Arthur was too worn out to even eat or stand. Max had a back injury and scars from being physically abused. Arthur was eating and exploring his new happy home within a few days, but Max had more trouble. He displayed mental ailments, especially toward humans because of the harsh treatment he received. But eventually, he came around.

Two years after rehabilitation and the horses are happy and living the kind of life the beautiful majestic creatures deserve.
