Malnourished Horse Rescued in Franklin County Already Improving

Posted: Updated:

Franklin County Animal Control officers rescued a severely malnourished horse last week, and workers at the Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue say Shotgun is already improving.

The young colt only weighs about 245 pounds, according to leaders at the Rescue, when he should be in the 500-750 pound range.

Donations are being accepted at the Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue to help Shotgun's recovery, and those who do donate can get access to a live web cam where you can watch Shotgun as he progresses.
