Silent Sunday on Frequently Feline

I need to thank Jo Deibel for sharing this remarkably touching and beautiful video of a race horse that was not" fast enough at the track to earn a living".

Happily, Dustin's Dreamer, a gorgeous Thoroughbred was given a second chance and a forever loving home thanks to Dustin, his exercise rider who saved him from the slaughter house.

I am sure you will be as deeply moved as I was, watching this magnificent video of Dustin's Dream's rescue, uploaded to YouTube by Toddyboy68. It is truly inspirational.

You are invited to leave a comment if this story touched you.

I love this story. I wish there were more people like Dustin. What a truly inspirational story. Bless you Dustin

Why can't people see these magnificent creatures as something other than a paycheck? Kudos to those who rescued this horse and continue to try and rescue others.

Excellent example of how useful many of the so-called sick and unwanted horses actually are who end up in Auction Houses, then purchased by "kill buyers" with dollar signs in their eyes based on the weight of the animal. Take responsibility for what you own and what you do in life.

You know it does my heart good to see there are still kind, loving,caring people in this world. Bravo to Dustin.

Praying for the time when NO living beings anywhere will be exploited, period. Horse racing is a brutal, exploitive and violent "sport" that should be shut down and definitely boycotted by all compassionate persons.

you have lifted me with this beautiful story. I wish all animals were treated with compassion and respect-they are also God's creatures. I am glad
there are people who are willing and able to step forward when they
see an animal in need to save it.
