I stumbled upon this earlier which i wrote about a year ago, after rescuing Magic as shown below....he had been neglected and ridden hard....tearing his tendon, which in an older 17 year old could have been fatal...
The Ode of a Rescue Horse
His big dark eyes penetrate the core to my very
soul, and I know his wisdom is beyond my human understanding…..
It pains me deeply to watch as he drags his injured leg behind his fragile and thin body, for he has suffered appallingly,
and repeatedly at the hands of ignorance, for crimes he did not commit . . . .
for simply being a horse
His only agenda was, as always- to survive, and no
malice to the people that have raped his soul, or carried out this damage to
his now broken body is even present
I vowed to save him . . . . to save this abused waif
and stray . . . . .
and I am determined, though I do sometimes
worry if his injuries are too severe
Even in this half state, he teaches me through his
kindness, that two wrongs never make a right, and he shows me the way to assist
others about his kind
For the love of a rescue horse like Magic runs deep .......
and I wonder every day on how to stem this flooding tide of cruelty and abuse, as
to stop this from happening ever again……
but sadly the continual flow of horses
like this makes it beyond the reach of one woman in this sea of equine
Though you are all welcome to join me as I continue

I am pleased to say that Magic did make a full recovery, and
was re-homed in early 2013. He continues to have a happy life with Kirsten and his
mares as shown here.
