After Arthur, a Belgian draft who invested most of his life as a work horse at a farming community in New England, struck 30, he had been of no use to his own owners. He needed to get involved in a number of auctions and has been managed by a great deal of traders together with another horse called Max. Cindy Daigre, creator of Ferrell Hollow Farm Senior Horse Sanctuary in Tennessee, watched their photographs on the internet and, viewing their dreadful shape, made a decision to rescue them.

“I had been advised that Arthur was starved while attempting to visit another auction and the guy who had him frequently sold lean old horses into the ‘kitty guy’ with exotic cats for meat,” Daigre told The Dodo. “I was horrified.” Daigre hired a transporter and attracted both horses for her sanctuary.

Arthur was so poor he could not even stand and did not care for his new environment. Max was worst state – he had been physically mistreated, he had been afflicted by a back injury and had neurological troubles. However, Daigre was decided to put them back to their feet and afterwards 2 years of hard labour, both horses are currently better than ever! Healthy, happy and powerful, they enjoy one another’s business in Daigre’s refuge. “They do care for each other and could be angry if they were to be split,” Daigre added. “[They have] a friendship shaped through catastrophe after which companion.”
