Suzi & Whiskey are doing great!
It's amazing what a lot of TLC by this wonderful group has accomplished.
Attached are pictures of Suzi and Whisk as they appear today. Suzi, once skin and bones and riddled with infection--considered very possibly terminal--continues to gallop, full speed, down the road to recovered health. Whisk, initially very debilitated , though not terminal, has blossomed. For these remarkable recoveries, we thank Lynda and Mike Broas, Dr. Rachael Fiske, Pine Bush Equine, and all of those who worked so hard to keep these horses from going back to the unloving embrace of their alleged abusers--abusers who indeed, refused to surrender the animals; who indeed, wanted them returned.
Though now beautiful to behold, both horses still bear the scars of their visit to the dark side of human nature. I often wonder if certain sights and sounds and scents take them back, at times, to those terrible days of pain and starvation and despair--or if, living in the moment, they are able to forget. When Lynda learned the pre-Lee names of the horses were DaisyMae and Digger, she used them--and instantly, the horses responded.
