Horses have so many important roles in our lives and we rely on them constantly for strength, transportation, and sport.
But despite being worked so hard, they usually respond lovingly and diligently.
Between the crucial roles they play and their amazing work ethic, one would expect them to be honored for their invaluable service, like these retired pampered ponies.
Sadly this is not the case in many circumstances. Once horses reach the age when they are no longer in peak physical condition, they are frequently forgotten about, neglected, or simply killed.
This was the extremely deplorable case for horses Arthur and Max, who were united through a whirlwind of abusive circumstances.
Their heartbreaking tale brings to light the terrible misuse that older animals often face—and the individuals who are working to give them the proper latter life that they deserve.
