A few days ago a local girl was at the Mount Airy livestock auction, she came acrost a starved, sick,weak horse. He was to weak to stand up. The owner of the horse was kicking and beating the horse trying to make him stand up. The girl begged the owner to stop beating the horse and then convinced him to give her the horse.she got the horse home and got a vet to come and see the sick horse. He was starved and due hydrated. The girl started nursing the horse, she has gotten a group of her friends to help take care of the horse. That decided to name him spirit! That are giving spirit around the clock care, even sleeping in the barn so thay are there if spirit needs something at night. Spirit has gained back 35 lbs and his wounds are healing, but he still has a long way to go.
Please keep Spirit in your thoughts and prayers
I'm so proud of the local kids that are takeing care of spirit! That's right that are a group of highschool kids from sorry county that are doing all of this.
I'm going to find out how to donate feed and hay to help Spirit. I want to do anything I can to help them. I want to ask everyone to please pray for Spirit. I know thay will have him back to his happy horsey self in no time!!
