Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - After weeks of some serious tender-loving care, close to a dozen rescued horses are showing dramatic signs of recovery.

Last fall we told you about a Hawley woman who helped rescue and care for horses that were starving and near death in rural Otter Tail County.

Those horses have a caring and heartfelt woman to thank.

Amazing to think just weeks ago, this beautiful Arabian Stallion was teetering between life and death.

Rescued with ten others, a veterinarian nearly put him down because he was so close to death.

Charlotte Tuhy, Hightail Horse Ranch and Rescue: “She said the only reason she did not was the look in his eyes, he was kind of pleading for another chance. Glad she listened to her heart, on that one because he was worth it. We had a prayer chain going for him.”

This was Zane then, shortly after the rescue. Today, he and 10 others are recovering at the hightail Horse Ranch and Rescue near Hawley where Charlotte Tuhy has a cozy, country style bed and breakfast for the horses. Texas Rose, Derby, Mickey and Darling Marie. Abused and left to die, they are thriving and looking for a new home.

Tuhy: “If you do for work what you would do with all the money you wanted, then you got real happiness.”

And while rescuing horses is rewarding it is also expensive, veterinary bills and the cost of hay.

Tuhy: “The cost of hay going up, 100 dollars a month for each horse.”

The rescued horses are doing so well, there is a plea to find homes for the four legged friends. The ranch hopes people will adopt them and find a good home for them.

Kristen Dawson, Volunteer: “They have come a long way they look good.”

The good news is, some of the horse have done so well, they are expecting a foal. It appears Zane, the stallion, has his spunk back.
