It's nice to read a story about an animal that isn't being abused or slaughtered. I'm glad Shayne has such a good home! All animals should be so lucky!

Iam sure there would be many more that have their lives cut short on a slaughter house floor or neglected and left life has value beyond measure

A shame that most horses aren't allowed to live out their natural lifespans :(
