The “Little Guy” is the story of perseverance and dignity for a little horse who did not know how to give up. He has been rewarded with the best life ever because of your support of TPR!
We picked him up from a farm in 2007. We were told that the owner/breeder had abandoned him there so the farm just stopped feeding him. LG was an unbroken 5 year old colt. None of the local rescues would take him because he was a colt. When we became aware of his situation, we went and got him out of there.
During the early days I created a blog (click here) to show donors what it would take to get him on the right track. He had so many supporters that I wanted them to see what a difference their actions had made for this wonderful horse.
There were other horses there being fed and cared for. There he stood in a 12×12 dirt paddock with no shelter or food.
“I have no idea how he survived that long”, said Kimberly Godwin Clark. He survived the transition to Leighton Farm and over the next year we nursed him back to health, castrated him and then broke him to saddle.
In 2009 he became the luckiest horse in the world when Linda Crawford became his devoted owner. Now he lives a life of love and security. For several years he divided his time between Vermont and Virginia and then in 2013 Linda sent him to Sharon White at Last Frontier Farm to be trained as an Event horse.
This is what donor support results in, from unwanted starvation case to beloved champion. They just need a chance.
Note: “I was so touched by all of the people who stepped up to help the little guy that I kept a blog so they could see what they had done done for this very special horse.” ~Kimberly Godwin Clark
