Another Mini Horse Rescue

Bird whisperer and animal rescuer A Chick Called Albert says, “Looking for a compagnon for Nano, a weak tiny horse I had rescued, I came across another mini horse in dire need of care and kind attention. I named her Iris, for her eyes, and we walked and walked until she got healthy.” Yay! Happy endings!

Bird whisperer and animal rescuer A Chick Called Albert finds a sad, neglected mini horse and brings him home.

From YouTuber The Cooper Scoop: “This is the second time the farrier has come to trim this pony’s hooves. It is looking so much better from the first time.”

From YouTuber The Cooper Scoop: “A dear friend’s pony has overgrown hooves. I did my best to trim back the hooves but to rescue this pony we had to get professional help. I called the best farrier in my area to come trim these overgrown hooves. We found out that Charlie had foundered and that’s why his hooves have overgrown. It is going to take at least a year of trimming to get the angles right on this pony.”


This neglected pony’s hooves were in very bad shape when he was rescued — his hooves had grown so long that he couldn’t run and keep up with the other horses. But through this horse rescue, The Cooper Scoop was able to trim his hooves so he could run like all the other horses.
