Horses of Proud Spirit – Padre
A stallion and his daughter were found starving and without water. They were considered impossible to catch. Being in a very out-of-the-way location, it was even difficult to get to where they were. However, Melanie, with her knowledge and confidence, was able to get them both to Proud Spirit. After they regained weight and strength, Padre’ was gelded and both became members of the Proud Spirit herd. Padre’ had much more difficulty settling in but has bonded with a small group and is now living as a horse should.
Amazing transformation, this is the same horse!
