We pulled a chain out of a horse's face the other day.

LF, did y'all end up with the horse?
What about the foal?
Can you extrapolate on the story?
I'm curious as to how the horse came to the attention of Cruzan Cowgirls, where it ended up.
Hopefully, all the kids in video learned something.
Thanks.

BTW - ya still got the Mongoose?

The horse had been tied with a chain when it broke free dragging a length of rope which eventually tightened the chain across her face, jerking tighter every time she stepped on the rope (I can't imagine how that felt, not good...).

The boys that own her had trouble catching her and eventually called us, most of them ,know we help out, these boys were from williams delight, an area we are in quite often.

I'll make a follow up video soon, her recovery is nothing short of amazing, you can't even tell her eye was injured, you can see a bit of scarring across the front, but that's it. Both her and the foal are doing very well last we saw them.

We get a lot of calls out west for issues like this, I've decided to start shooting video of it because some times they are pretty interesting stories. These bush horses are some special adapted breed (unfortunately often adapted to very harsh living conditions), they heal amazingly fast and have insane endurance.
