"Hi Holly! My beautiful little palomino filly rescue is named Holly (by my son who is sixteen because she came to us during the Holidays). Although we live in Texas my husband coaches football in Canada for the Toronto Argonauts. You and your horses…"
I have 3 beautiful horses that I am fostering for a horrible neglect case where 54 horses were already found dead. 64 others (mare with foals mixed with 32 stallions too weak to fight) were holding on for dear life, many within days of death, too weak to stand. They were fed Thrive feed free choice with water as they lay until strong enough to stand and be moved. There recovery has been truly amazing with their weight and health in full recovery within two months. All have survived without a single case of colic or founder. Needless to say my three other horses are on Thrive now. Please check out this feed at Thrive.com

You've done a wonderful job with your rescues. The situation where your rescues came from breaks my heart. That is terrible.
5 of my horses are rescues. 2 of them were from auctions, 2 were from the feedlot, and the other one was taken from the owner because of abuse and neglect. They are all wonderful horses and how someone did those things to them puzzles me. I just don't get it... some real sick people out there.
