Age: 7 years
Victor was born in a farm near Medgidia’s shelter. One day his owner came to us asking help because he didn’t have enough money for feed for his horse. For some time we gave him hay but after a few weeks he came again to say that if we didn’t take his horse, he would have to take him to the slaughter house. The problem was not just poverty but the lack of interest in the animal that grew up on his farm.
Alina, our vet, immediately prepared the place where to host Victor and gave him the affection that he never received from his owner. A few months later, one night, Victor’s owner came to our shelter. He was really drunk and he wanted to steal the horses. Fortunately our caretaker, hearing the noise, called the police who took away the man who was shooting and threatening our staff.
Now Victor is passing his life quietly in Footprints of Joy, with other horses, in our big and green shelter. This is thanks to the support of our partners that enable us to keep our refuges safe and under control.
Update (November 2016)
Always ready to have a good time, he will never get bored if he’s with Dominique. Whenever he is running his long mane will float in the air like he’s making a shampoo commercial. Always ready to be brushed and scratched.
Update (May 2017)
Victor is the horse that always poses for pictures and is fascinated by cameras. With the sun shining and the grass green, he never stops nagging Dominique and running around like children.
