Autumn has been exercising for a week now to start rebuilding muscles lost when she was starving. She has gained 60 lbs. What a huge difference. Her sweetness, calmness, and quiet attentiveness remain the same.
Today I lunged her under a saddle. She was "been there, done that" about the whole thing. Still skinny, no longer starving. She is becoming lovelier every day.
I wonder about the hundreds or thousands of other Autumns needing someone to lend a caring hand. Sweet horses that still have such vivid selves to share.
Moose is doing well. He is very ridable and he is gaited. My friend and co-rescuer is keeping him.
