Grace, a majestic horse, was constantly anxious when she was first rescued, but over time she became more comfortable and confident. Emily of Starry Skies Equine Rescue and Sanctuary did everything to make Grace happy.
For several weeks Grace was pacing the fences of the sanctuary. Emily and the volunteers were worried about her because she didn’t want to eat much.
They tried to find out what she liked, but it seemed that she didn’t want to connect with people. Grace probably needed time and space, which they provided her with.
More horses were brought in a month later, and Grace got along with them. She started to eat independently, and two months after, she was progressing well.
Grace had stopped pacing around, and she ate regularly. This meant she was ready to be adopted. Scott did great on his application. He is the barn manager at OATS Therapeutic Equestrian Center.
Their goal is to provide therapeutic care for special needs kids and adults. Grace is a gentle giant, and Scott knew she could be a perfect fit for their community.
At first, Grace was nervous on the way to her new home, but once she was introduced to her new space, all her anxiety disappeared. Scott was thrilled to provide Grace with a forever home.
