Put a horse in an open field and it’s going to want to run. Put chains on that horse and it’s still going to want to run, even if that means those chains will cut into its legs. It’s unthinkable that this kind of thing happens, but in Romania, horse owners commonly chain their horses’ front feet together to keep the beautiful animals from running away. But horses are strong spirited animals, so it’s no surprise that even in chains, one horse from the Letea area was able to escape from its owners.
When Ovidiu Rosu, a vet with the organization Four Paws, found the horse, it was unable to keep up with its friends and had to adopt this difficult way of getting around.
Still, the horse tried its best to keep up.
As a vet familiar with the chaining practice, Rosu knew what he had to do to release this horse from it’s suffering.
After sedating the horse, Rosu set about freeing it from his bindings. That’s when he noticed the deep cut above one of the horse’s hooves.
Finally, the horse was unbound.
When the horse awoke, it couldn’t help but show its sweet side and thank Rosu for his kindness.
