One cart horse, Joey, was so starved that he ate plastic, rope and netting, which blocked his intestines and made it impossible for him to eat anything.
After his rescue and rehabilitation Joey, the brown horse in the video, was led into a field of grass for the first time. He “lowered his head to smell this strange new stuff and his eyes lit up. He nibbled on a few blades, then burst into a leap of joy, bucking several times before settling down to eat.” In this video he plays with a new friend.
