Feel Good Sunday: Video~Horse With Overgrown Hooves Rescued From Barn

Source: The Dodo

This pony was alone in a barn for 10 years — his hooves were so long he could barely walk. But he’s about to walk out into the sun and feel the grass for the very first time.

  1. We must work at our State legislative levels to move animals like the ones in the article out of their status as livestock w/o rights & protections for decent treatment. We need an ‘honest broker’ to bring together the middle-income family farmers/ranchers who are eking-out a living while mega-corporations are running factory farms & feedlots & slaughterhouses breeding diseases like COVID and infecting vulnerable populations.

    • Agreed. This evidently was a stallion which may explain his isolation, but he was not starved so not abandoned. Meaning someone was looking after him on a daily basis, yet this massive neglect and (yes) torture for a social and sentient animal was considered okay by at least some people. It is more or less a miracle he was discovered and recovered. I see a key problem is that we have commodified all life, including our own. Where is our sense of reverence for Creation?
