A teen girl saves a dying horse and it changes the lives of both

It was a chance encounter on a country road, but it changed the lives of two creatures: a teenage girl Kelsey Allonge and a horse. This touching story of real friendship won't leave anybody indifferent!


One day early in the morning, Kelsey and her mother were driving along a country road and noticed a young skinny horse lying in the grass that was obviously abused and starving.

It was impossible to put her into the trailer, but the girl couldn't let her stay there and die. She made a brave decision to walk it home that was almost nine miles away…

This is a story with a happy end, but there are a lot of other animals that are severely abused and, unfortunately, there is no hope for them. Kelsey Allonge deserves respect for her actions. Thanks to her the horse is now in good health condition and quite happy.

And what do YOU think about it?

Quite cliché. Thought the horse would turn out to be a race horse and win the young girl loads of cash!

I am very impressed with the courage and kind heart that the girl had to help the horse.

Just a thought but without contacting animal control she is a horse thief not saying what she did wasn't morally right but just taking the animal was wrong

When someone leaves a starving, dying horse on the side of the road to die, it doesn't belong to them anymore! She could have turned this in to authorities so the owner could be held accountable!!!

I would have done the same...whoever owns the horse should be found and charged with animal abuse.

I'm amazed at the fact that if the horse was in such bad shape, how she managed to walk it nine miles?

The abusers will get their justice as they sit in the hottest corner of hell reserved just for them! Kelsey and her mother did something heroic and deserve praise. The new friendship comes with plenty of financial cost, yet real love triumphs over $ every time.
