So I got called out yesterday to take pictures of a man who rescued a horse from some bad conditions and was keeping it in his front yard inside city limits.
Tony Hamilton was fishing with an acquaintance when the man mentioned he wanted to get rid of his two horses because he could no longer afford to care for them. He took a look and realized they probably wouldn't last much longer, they were so malnourished.
So Tony took them the next day, walking 20 miles with Penny and another horse before he could find someone to lend him a horse trailer for the remaining 15 miles back to town. The other horse stayed with the owner of the trailer, and now Tony is trying to find a home for Penny.
Currently she's tied up to a light post in his front yard on his quarter acre property near the house he and several family members live in. Obviously he can't keep here there long, so he's scrambling to find a new home for Penny. I hope she goes somewhere wonderful; this horse deserves it. Tony also deserves a medal for taking it upon himself to do the right thing, even when it's a major inconvenience.
