There was a horse.
Who knows what destiny is, when there is no choice, but there is a ''master'?
What is harmony? Your own harmony, which can't be fit into commonly accepted standards and principles?
Who was able to grasp and to measure one's call of duty, with no way to get rid of it and at the same time by rejecting all kind of lies – subconsciously, at genetic level?
A young horse had neither choice nor destiny, but there was a great thirst for freedom, pride, titanic spirit and strong body, trustful and pure love and faith…
Now, I would like to offer for your attention the history of a young horse, named Mojito:
This graceful creature was doomed by a man to a terrifying story, which almost led to a death.
In Mojyto’s veins flows the blood of a noble breed of Hannovers, a very proud horse breed, created by Prince of Hannover, and later by King of England George II.
Not so long time ago, the horse carried with a pleasure a cart with logs, also was helping with other routine tasks, she was satisfied and she was loved, but her master died.
After mater’s death, his relatives could not think of any other better idea, than to make a sausage out of Mojito, by selling her to a butcher.
I would not call a butcher a friend, but in this case we all are grateful to entrepreneurial butchers, who can ‘solve the problems’ for the sake of own benefit and to re-sell a young purebred horse, saving her life by profiting themselves…Let it be so…
So, Mojito was sold by a butcher for lease.
I will not be able to understand the feelings of a noble animal, whose great happiness till that moment was to enjoy the nature, to be affected and sense the smell of a fresh grass…
This noble horse, when she lost her master at the age of 6 years, had to entertain tourists in the middle of intensive and heaty tourist season in Kharkiv. She also had to suffer overnight in a 3 x3 size cage.
Possibly, Mojito was dreaming about fields and meadows, wind and freedom…
It is not surprising that people buying out Mojito, were not trying to find a special approach to her, and in the end exchanged her for a not-so-noble pony.
This way, the young horse appeared in Odessa, where she again was ‘not suitable for entertaining tourists’’.
New owners understood quickly that they were ‘’deceived’’ and that they were ‘’cheated’’ by getting not trained horse, who was suffering claustrofobia, stress and depression, and was not ready to earn money immediately, and also retained some character.
She was not trained and she was not loved. They tried to return her back to Kharkiv.
"Defective"... proud and unwanted, she was disappointed and abandoned, and she decided to kick, in an attempt to scare evil people. She trusted no more to anyone.
A man quickly stamped her with a diagnosis: aggressive. And again sold her for sausages. Her price was estimated at 9 000 UAU, and her destiny was decided.
Absolutely incidentally, almost immediately before transforming Mojito to a sausage, a professional horse keeper entered the territory, where Mojito was kept. He immediately evaluated a poor perspective for the animal, and contacted volunteers.
Repurchase of the horse, transportation and renting of a territory for her new place amounted to a costs of 13 500 UAH.
Thus, at the moment the horse was transported to a new place in Odessa and takes a rehabilitation course (focusing primarily on restortion of proper functioning of legs), under supervision of a veterinary.
Also, Mojito needs a back strengthening exercise and psychological adaptation, as her nervous system and physical condition deteriorated significantly as a result of actions of people.
On a video you can see the horse during training. Her parameters, after first days of rehabilitation, show firm and stable progress.
Key portion of necessary funds were already collected by volunteers of Odessa, however this beautiful horse still need more care and special nutrition.
Unfortunately, Mojito is not the only horse requiring our help.
On this planet, each animal has a right for respect, love and food.
We are asking all not indifferent people to help, as we see lots of similar cases.
We will keep you informed about the Mojito’s story and about other cases of saved animal.
