In the municipality of Três Corações (MG), the zootechnic Marina Alves hears the footsteps of horses in front of her house at night. When she goes out into the street, she sees that she is a very weak, thin and tired horse. “It was very late, I didn’t even have any kind of horse food at home, so I offered him a bucket of water. The next day, I found out from the neighbors that he had been wandering around the neighborhood for a couple of weeks and had been abandoned by a carter,” she says.

Pé de Pano, as he was called, showed clear signs of abuse: “Horses are a very expressive species. His eyes and ears were droopy, his head was always turned downwards. Emotionally he wasn’t well.”

In the city where he was found there is a law that prohibits the movement of large animals. Marina then contacted the municipality, which intervened the following day. Normally the animal is collected and the owner removes it upon payment of a fine. In this case, having been abandoned, Pé de Pano would remain in a public place, considered precarious due to its needs, aggravated by its weak situation. Marina therefore decides to stay with Pé de Pano.

A veterinary report revealed that he had the tick disease in a very advanced stage. Marina’s father, an expert on horses, who contributed to her rescue, was sure that he would not resist the disease.

Pé de Pano was transported to the family farm, in the same municipality. “During the rescue he was very calm. Whenever my father and I get close, we always respect his time and his space. He understood that he was well cared for,” says Marina.

The treatments were prescribed by the city vet, at no cost to the family. With injections, dewormers and plenty of feed, the horse recovered quickly. In about a month he was already stronger and healthier.

“I think it’s incredible how these farm animals, which unfortunately tend to suffer a lot, like pigs and horses, don’t lose a sort of genuine love, despite so many traumas. Pé de Pano adapted very well to the countryside and also made friends with other horses. He lives free and withdrawn. He is not assembled and does not pull anything else,” he concludes.
