“I heard the clambering of hooves as I walked past,” Lisa Neuburger, executive director of Silent Wave Horse Rescue, told The Dodo. “I looked in and saw this little guy ... I have had nightmares ever since.”
Inside the completely dark trailer was a miniature horse, completely covered in wounds and lice. He had been locked inside with nothing to eat but wet, moldy straw. He was terrified.
“He backed up against the wall in fear,” Neuburger said. “We tried getting a halter on him to lead him out and his legs locked up.”
