This is the real-life story of Patrick, an 11-year-old Quarter horse from Texas. His story has a good ending and it would be heartwarming to know more life stories could end this way.
Life wasn’t always good for Patrick. When the kind people at San Antonio Animal Control first took Patrick in on July 17, 2013, he was near death. The horse was starving and severely dehydrated. It took over two and half months to bring Patrick into a better state. Patrick began regaining weight, recovering his health with dedicated medical attention and receiving some real TLC for a change.
The San Antonio Animal Control provided Patrick with everything he needed to make a good recovery. He was gelded and given all necessary vaccinations. Patrick began to bloom with good feelings and health.
In a press release from the Humane Society of the United States, it was announced that Patrick has moved to his forever home at Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison, Texas. On this beautiful 1,300-acre ranch, Patrick has at last found the perfect home. Here Patrick will be able to roam free with other fortunate horses.
The Black Beauty Ranch is operated by The Fund for Animals, an affiliate of the Humane Society of the U.S.
As stated in the press release,
The ranch is the nation’s largest and most diverse animal sanctuary, home to more than 1,000 formerly abused, abandoned and neglected animals who are now living a life of peace and safety.
Patrick has already moved to the ranch but must spend two weeks in quarantine before he can be introduced to some of the 500 horses already in residence.
It is amazing, really, that Patrick survived the earlier problems in his life. He will now be able to enjoy his days and live the rest of his life as good as it gets – free.
