|Skye and Clover enjoying the day!|
Skye was malnourished when Forysth Co. Animal Control found her. She had been purchased at an auction, perhaps going though several auctions or different owners.
Clover came from Forsyth Co. too but was walking around an abandoned housing development during the financial crisis. I don't think she was dumped for financial reasons. A SaveTheHorses volunteer family was passing and saw her walking around. There were no fences, just half finished streets. Not a place for a horse. The Sheriff recently arrested and charged a local man with 3 counts of dead livestock not buried (2 horses and a cow) and confiscated his stallion because it was nearly dead from starvation. Could she have come from that same farm? It was directly across the street.
These two old mares are healthy and happy now. The foster mom is planning on selling her farm soon and Skye and Cover will need a new place to live out their lives, hopefully together. They are our Golden Girls. Neither has ever been ridden since they have been in our care. We take pleasure is caring for them, watching them thrive and stay healthy in their golden years. We are Rescue!
