30-Year-Old Stallion Saved from Squalor Gets Beautiful Sunset Years
Wonderful story with an awesome "ending". Why is it that my "breed of choice" (the Arabian) seems to be the one neglected and abused more often than others? Is it my imagination since I am so much in love with this breed (love horses period, but just saying it's my FAVORITE breed) that I am more horrified when I read about an Arabian? Seems just far to often, people get Arabs and don't understand them, underestimate their sensitivity and have them for the wrong reasons......pieces of "living art" and collect them like dolls. Another similar story involved a highly bred Polish Arabian found abandoned in squalor when he was 17, result of a nasty divorce dispute. He was sold as a yearling for thousands of dollars and then just had disappeared.
