GREEN VALLEY, AZ (KOLD) - As I watched this horse step out of the trailer, I was horrified at the condition of this gentle soul and wondered how anyone could allow this horse to end up in this condition.

I was told he was used as a therapy horse, and the woman who had him could not afford to continue feeding him.

Although we are seeing more and more starvation cases, I could not imagine anyone letting an innocent being, stand day in and day out without even a morsel of food. Although Equine Voices is at capacity, I could not turn my head and allow this horse to suffer one more moment.

I was curious to find out how much he actually weighed so we measured him and we found out he is 16 hands high and weighs approximately 908 lbs.

Due to soaring hay prices and the special supplements that will be required to bring him back to health, we are looking for sponsors and donations to help this horse with no name.
