The shelter contacted Kindle in hopes of finding the horse a home, and she called the vet to see what treating Sammie would entail.
“I asked him a whole bunch of questions, and my last question to him was, ‘Does he have the will to live in his eyes?’” Kindle said. “The vet immediately said, ‘Yes,’ and I said, ‘OK, I’ll take him. If he’s willing to fight the fight, then I’ll help him do that.’”
When Sammie arrived at the rescue, he proved to Kindle just how eager he was to get better. “He immediately put his head to the ground and started gobbling grass,” Kindle said.
