Sammir is a handsome senior Arabian who arrived at the sanctuary with his best friend April in November 2018. We were contacted by another sanctuary that was working to rehome 70 horses from a cruelty case in New Jersey. 60 of the horses had been re-homed but no one wanted this senior bonded pair in need of medical attention. We agreed to accept them as our first horses at the sanctuary.
Upon arrival, we saw that Sammir was unsteady on his hind legs, although he gets around just fine. Our veterinarian confirmed that his neurological issues were likely the result of abuse in his past working life. Sammir is a gentle soul who helps keep the herd together as a peacemaker.
