Before and after photos of neglected miniature horses rescued from Indiana home

VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Several miniature horses rescued from an Indiana home are doing well, according to News 10 in Indiana.

On Sunday, the Horse Shoe Equine Rescue was called to a home when Animal Control asked for their help removing four miniature horses, three of which were in bad shape.

“They were in a really small area, and they were standing in what started out as about 20 inches of manure and went up to about 30- nches of manure,” said Ron Barnett, owner of the rescue.

It’s believed the horses suffered years of apparent neglect.

“Their tendons are all stretched in different directions now, and they’re going to have to re-learn to walk. It’s going to take a while before they can actually get back to the point where they can walk straight again or even run again,” Ron Barnett said in a previous interview.

The growth on the horses’ hooves has since been removed. They have also received a much needed grooming.
