Love of A beautiful horse named Bailey

I have shared "some" of this story with my friends on Facebook but I wanted to share it here with you all where I can
truly "tell" the story. As I have told you my Dad lives on 50 acres and has many pastures along with a barn that holds
2 beautiful horses, Jackie and Bailey.

Bailey is a rescue horse. He was living on a farm with some people who did not feed him properly. The animal patrol
seized the animals. Dads veteranarian Erin, and her assistant Nicole, heard about this and they went to the property
and both women agreed that they would rescue Bailey from the glue factory. (yes you read that correctly, these poor
animals were on their way to the glue factory, isn't that awful!) So the ladies bring Bailey to my dads since Nicole does
not have a barn but has been helping out my Dad and stepmom with their horse (since dad has been sick)~ Let me
explain something here ~ When horses are not fed properly their feet don't develop properly and they end up not able
to walk without pain. Horses put most of their weight on their front two legs so if they are in pain they will have to be
put down because they don't have any other options. For the past year Nicole, my dad and stepmom and the veteranarian
have all worked, loved and cared for this beautiful and sweet horse. I met Bailey when I came here in June and fell in love! During that time I was here he was feeling good but this trip has shown the affects of what his previous owner has done to him and Bailey is struggling. We have spent many nights out there wrapping his feet, feeding him a certain diet, only letting him out for a little bit in the pasture because it has rained soooo much here in florida and being wet causes more trouble for
his feet! This past week I have asked my Facebook friends to pray for Bailey but today I am here asking you all.

This morning, as a last resort Bailey had surgery and is truly the last resort. If this does not help they will have to put him
down. He is out in the barn and they cut his tendons which I am guessing is a helpful thing or else they wouldn't have
done this. But he must stay down and quiet. Can you all please say a prayer for this beautiful and precious horse?

This is Bailey a couple of weeks ago, after the vet Erin had removed his casts and put new ones on in an attempt to help bailey.

This was about a week and a half later, he was out in the pasture. Not walking alot but enjoying being out of the barn

Bailey was giving me hugs

and now kisses!!! :)

Oh how I love this sweet boy, please pray for him! I will keep you all posted

I've followed this a bit on FB. Can't believe people neglect or abuse animals like this. For what purpose? Why even have the animal if you can't/won't care for it properly.


Praying for GOD to heal and restore this magnificent creature. Bailey is beautiful. I am so disturbed by people who treat animals as trash or worse.
Keep us posted on the progress of this giant beauty!
Blessings, andrea

Love & Blessings,

Oh, what a great story! He is a beautiful horse and I will definitely pray for him!

J.D. called me this morning as I was headed to work and told me coffee was ready. I stopped in and had coffe with him and his sweet wife. It is so good to be able to visit with him and he was just cuttin' up big time! Thanks for praying for this precious man.

I pray for your dad and J.D. together all the time.



Hubby and I just prayed that God will heal Bailey and that he will be stronger than ever before. He brings so much joy to humans. We know God cares.

I need to send you an email with my prayer request.

Always thinking of you,

What a story! Love those pictures of you and him! I am not sure about kisses from a horse myself though! :) Hope and pray he gets all better!


Prayers are going up for Bailey. :)


Precious Sister,

What a beautiful, magnificent creature. Bailey is one lucky horse to have such wonderful people taking good care of him. I just love the pictures of the both of you. He surely has lots of love to pour out onto others. My prayers are being said for Bailey, that he recovers quickly and will be a strong, healthy, vibrant horse. Just look at him...he already vibrantly shines!

I love you my friend and my prayers are fervently being said for your wonderful dad. Please give him a hug and gentle peck on the cheek from me.

Many (((Hugs))), Prayers, Love & Blessings sent your way dear one,


Nice horse and may God heal Bailey's feet in no time. And keeping you and your dad in prayers, too. Thank you for sharing Bailey's story with us. Love you sister Loren!

The Real Me!

Ugh! This makes me sad! I will say a prayer for Bailey. But please don't tell me the results if they are bad! LOL
Love you sweet friend.
