Day 7: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!


The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

As we count down to 2021, join us every day this month as we share stories from the barn that show how your support has helped horses in 2020.

With the uncertainties and challenges of this year, we truly appreciate your generosity and support.

Today’s story about is about this macho man!


Twitty is the last of the super seven to find his forever home. As a reminder, Twitty came to AAE with six other equine (JakeShayLady RoseSammyConway, and Brantley) after the passing of their elderly owner. Due to the owner’s health conditions and physical limitations, this herd had not received adequate care for quite some time. Twitty was dangerously overweight, but isn’t he one of the cutest minis ever?

First thought, Thelwell pony model, right?

Twitty wasn’t the typical intake. Usually, we work on putting weight on the horses that come in and try to get them back to normal weight. For this guy, it was the opposite. He started a new diet to try to take weight off to get him back to a normal weight. See the theme, though? Feed trough.

He grumbled about his meals all the time, can’t you tell? The measly meals are unfair when the rest of the herd gets a buffet. We reassured him it was just as hard for us to keep his meals small as it was for him (he didn’t buy it, and neither would I). By the way, name…Twitty…he earned.

Slowly the extra lumps and rolls faded away, and this sweet lil’ guy found his family and a little girl of his own.

“Every horse deserves to be loved by a little girl”.
