It’s incredible what a little love can do.

When we meet Benny, we meet a shell of a horse. The initial photos are disturbing, so beware.

His ribs are sticking out; he’s starving and emaciated. He’s clinging to life. Looks like whoever owned Benny forgot about him completely.

But enter the heroes of this story. The Last Stop Horse Rescue is an organization and 21-acre farm in Maine dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating horses that have been abused, abandoned, neglected, or starved. They found Benny, and that’s when his life finally changed forever.

Over the next six months, Benny transformed into a gorgeous animal, inside and out.

His progress is stunning, and even the medical team can’t believe how far he’s come. By the end of this video, my heart went from broken to bursting with joy for this courageous horse.

Enjoy Benny’s journey, and please SHARE this video with your friends and family on Facebook!

P.S. For another miraculous horse rescue, meet Scarlett.

Benny was starved and left to die. It's a miracle he was discovered in time...

He could hardly move, let alone stand up on his legs.

The vet nearly cried when he saw Benny's progress.

He's an inspiration to everyone -- even the other animals at the farm.
