Rescued, she was living “alone” among a hundred cows in the Animal Aid shelter. She was surrounded by animals and humans, but she was lonely. Sukie desperately needed another horse, because horses need horses to talk to, to groom, to play with, to take comfort from in their shared language. Across the city, a horse lay dying from a suspected twisted intestine.
But she wasn’t alone. Her dearest companion was a little red mare, who appeared out of the blue following the ambulance at full gallop, as we transported her critically ill friend to our hospital. Back in the hospital, we did everything we could to help the suffering horse, but sadly she didn’t have the strength to make it. She gently slipped away quietly within a few hours, with her friend by her side. Her friend circled and seemed to grieve. But then, she saw Sukie.
This video is a tribute to all friends. Belle was the answer to Sukie’s prayers. And Sukie must be the answer to Belle’s in turn.
