Hopeful and two other horses were abandoned at a vet’s office in 2009. Imagine the office staff’s surprise when they arrived one morning to find three emaciated horses in their paddocks with no owner. Fortunately the county placed the horses with BEHS, and Hopeful quickly gained weight. She was adopted but then returned to Bluebonnet because she wasn’t well-trained. She was easy to saddle and bridle and climb onboard, but she didn’t want to move out once she had a rider on her back. Once she came back to BEHS, she went to a few foster homes. She had problems with chronic abscesses and founder, and despite good care, she continued to get worse. The rescue made the decision to let her go. Hopeful will be missed by everyone who knew her.
