On thanksgiving of 2017, I came across an ad of a horse who would be sent out to slaughter the following day.
It was his final plea for rescue.
His sad brown eyes just did something to my heart so I impulsively sent in the money for him.
I had never owned a horse before and had been out of riding for 10 years.
I must have been crazy- what a chance to take, to blindly rescue a horse from an online ad.
It is 3 and 1/2 years later and I’m so happy I took that chance.
Avi is my best friend and the first pair of ears that I want to see when I walk out to the barn.
Every day, still, I wake up and want to pinch myself that I found him. Or he found me. Or whatever. “who rescued whom?”
