Morgan County Crew
The "Crew" arrived Thursday, August 19, 1999
from Morgan County, WV. The "after" photos were
taken less than three months later.
Arabella and Ruby Before
(left) and after (middle and right).
and Ruby Slippers
Ruby was only 6 days old at the time of the rescue. Since
her diet still consists mainly of mom's milk, she is in
the best condition of the crew. Arabella did not fare
as well. Notice her hips. Her body sacrificed whatever
reserves it had for the sake of her foal's development.
following three foals were found confined to one stall.
Their long hooves showed how long it had been since they
had been outdoors. No sunshine. No fresh air. No clean
grass under their overgrown feet.
Chloe, before and after
four months old (in her "before" photo). Arrived
terribly underweight and carring most of her "baby
coat," which should have shed out long ago.
Faline, before and after
A little younger than Chloe and Shalimar, Faline
has severely impaired vision due to the effects
of nutritional neglect.
before and after
Same approximate age and condition as Chloe.
Everyone at the ERL are happy to announce that all of
these wonderful horses have been adopted into happy homes
of their own!
