When we first encountered Sapphire, we looked into the eyes of one of the bravest horses we’d ever seen. This emaciated mare nursed her colt, Levi, as they suffered severe neglect. When her milk was gone, she stood aside and let him have what little food there was. She gave everything she had to keep him alive.
We worked so hard to save her. But three days after we got her to Miracle Ranch, our vet told us Sapphire’s heart rate was 188. It should have been 30. With her colt standing just a few feet away, she collapsed and died in our arms. She hung on until Levi was safe … and then she let go.
We promised Sapphire that her sacrifice would not be in vain. We’d fulfill her dying wish to make sure Levi had a wonderful life. But malnutrition left Levi stunted, and he will never be bigger than a pony.
Levi will be integrated into our herd when he’s strong enough, but he’ll need months of careful feeding and medical attention first. But Levi has already let us know that he loves people! This sweet little guy often leaves his food just to get a hug from our volunteers.
If you choose Levi for virtual adoption, you’ll help us fulfill our promise to Sapphire and will ensure that she did not die in vain. Sponsor Levi now!
