Abandoned Old Emaciated Horse in Puerto Rico

  • Breed: Paso Fino
  • Name: Abuelo (Grandpa) A Rescued Horse
This said to be 25 year old horse was reported to Defensa yesterday by the Rincón police. Defensa called PintosRUs who administer two IV within the last 24 hours before we could arrange transport to donated Defensa Land. ABUELO is now residing on Defensa land - he is one of the most emaciated horses ?we have ever seen.   He will be cared for now - which will require a Vet visit, daily feed and land.   No donation is too small and every share helps ABUELO and horses like him!   

Original Notes From PintosRUs/Julie - We just pulled this Paso Fino stud off the streets in Rincon, Puerto Rico. He was a great horse in his day. I know the original owner. What happened since then is anybody's guess. He is rumored to have been wandering for at least 6 months and was frighteningly dehydrated. We gave him several IV's and put him in an area with fresh plentiful grass. Once he is healthy he will be gelded and looking for a loving home. Please share or donate to his recovery and a brighter future for this old guy.
