The Regal “Regal”, a slaughter bound horse off the ranch, has now been living in heaven on Earth with his adoptive family Deb and Diane. I’m told he never misses a morning coffee break with Diane as she spends time with him early each morning while drinking her coffee. He truly is a gentle old soul who had no idea what a treat or grooming was until the day he was rescued. Always a hard working ranch gelding, he was tossed away like trash when he could no longer keep up. He now enjoys a pampered retirement with occasional riding but lots of love and attention is showered upon him daily. Regal’s story inspired me to write my own story about the tragic outcomes of so many horses heading to slaughter who once belonged to someone who cared. Regal now has that someone, after some twenty plus years on a ranch in which he was used and abused.
