It is always disheartening to see animals in peril, but it is reassuring to know that there are numerous compassionate individuals and organizations working tirelessly to protect and preserve these animals. Crossfire Equine Rescue is one such organization that assists horses in need. Among the horses they rescued was a pregnant mare named Fancy.
Fancy, a pregnant mare, was rescued from being slaughtered for meat. However, the experience has traumatized her and she now has a fear of humans. To make matters worse, she was pregnant throughout the ordeal.
Upon learning of Fancy’s situation, the staff at Crossfire Equine Rescue in Texas quickly sprang into action to rescue her. Annie Shurtleff and her team, who are dedicated to aiding horses in distress, were instrumental in helping Fancy.
Despite being rescued from the slaughterhouse auction by Annie’s crew, Fancy remained frightened of her rescuers. The rescue team worked hard to earn her trust, soothe her nerves, and win her over.
To demonstrate their friendly nature, they often stayed overnight in the barn with Fancy. As Fancy gradually grew more comfortable with her rescuers through their displays of care and dedication, she was able to show them her affectionate side. Shortly after being saved, this pregnant mare gave birth to an adorable foal.
The delivery was smooth and painless. Afterwards, Fancy was acquainted with her newborn son. The look on her face upon seeing him spoke volumes, conveying her immense gratitude to Crossfire Equine Rescue for rescuing her and providing her with the opportunity to bring forth such a stunning foal.
As the male foal matured, Fancy and her offspring spent a great deal of time bonding with one another. Fancy proved to be an exceptional mother. Despite experiencing some difficulties during childbirth a few years ago, she has been thriving ever since. Both she and her foal were eventually adopted into caring homes. Due to the challenges she faced in her past, it took Crossfire Equine Rescue some time to locate the perfect family for her.
Fortunately, Fancy was able to locate a compassionate owner who was willing to be patient with her. She is now relishing her new abode to the fullest extent. It brings us great joy to witness Fancy residing in such a beautiful and stress-free environment after enduring so much hardship in her life. This is truly a wonderful finale to her story.
