White Horse


This beautiful creature lives on a mini-horse farm about a mile from our house. The animal had been badly abused and was nothing but skin and bones upon his arrival in our area. The new owners, however, have done wonders; it's looking healthy and comes running every time we stop to say hello.

Oh wow, that brings a tear to my eye. I'm so glad the new owners have taken this horse in and are nursing it back to health.

About your comment on my site today, I live in an apartment complex that is part of the Biltmore Estates. My apartment is probably the size of a bedroom in one of those mansions next door, but since I'm on the grounds I walk there all the time. When I first moved to AZ some 40 years ago, I used to drive through the estates to see the big houses. Now almost all of those original houses have been torn down and rebuilt as even larger and more elaborate homes. It's crazy.

I'm always astounded by animals' capability to overcome abuse. Beautiful animal, and hate to think it had been mistreated.

Beautiful horse! I cannot stand animal abuse or abuse of any kind!
