above picture shows the extensive damage the buck-shot caused throughout his hind quarters, legs, belly and back. In
addition to being shot, this poor kind horse had hooves that had not
been trimmed in what looked like 3 years causing crippling and severe tendon damage that will never heal properly. He was covered in hundreds of ticks and he showed obvious signs of abuse as well as malnutrition. He had not been dewormed or vaccinated. His teeth never done and he was a stallion (he is now of course a gelding). Silver's intake expenses were well in excess of $1,500.00. Silver is currently in rehab and will reside in our sanctuary for quite some time, possibly for the rest of his life.Every little bit helps. We cannot do this without you.

I Take Responsibility For The Horse Within
I will see that he has every day,
plenty of clean water and good hay.
Shelter from cold, wind and rain
and the ration he needs daily of grain
I'll see to his need for play and exercise.
and Love him, for that is the bind that ties.
I’ll teach him and I promise to learn
His trust in me, I’ll take time to earn.
He’ll not be just a toy that I can afford,
that I forget, except to pay board.
I’ll see to his needs day in and day out,
not leaving him in his stall to sulk and pout.
I know that I own him but he too owns me,
I’m responsible to keep him happy and healthy.
He is not a burden, but a lifelong friend.
Not one I’ll abandon when his life nears its end.
It was my choice, not his, to have a horse
From that choice his life should be better, not worse.
I’ll not ship him off when he’s too old to ride,
finding excuses and reasons behind which to hide.
Like marriage it was meant to last, not end in divorce.
For that divorce often means the death of the horse.
It is more like a child, the purchase a birth,
a being to care for, a life that has worth.
I acknowledge this commitment with honor and pride,
I’ll care for this horse, he’s not just something to ride.
If the day ever comes, when my promise I can’t fulfill,
I’ll see that he is placed with someone who will.
