Kelsie, an Illinois teenager, was driving down a back country road with her mom early one morning when she spotted a skeletal horse on the side of the road. Her mom stopped the car and Kelsie got out.
The horse was clearly neglected and abused. They knew they had to do something to help. They tried to get her on a horse trailer but she wouldn't get on out of fear. The only thing to do was to walk her home. The only thing was, Kelsie lived nine miles away. It took Kelsie and the horse four hours to walk the nine miles, it was almost impossible due to the fact that the horse was in such bad shape. But Kelsie was determined to make it.
Finally home but not out of the woods yet, the horse whom she named Sunny, was very sick. She was malnourished, she had whip marks on her body, her eye was swollen shut, her backbone was sticking out three inches, and her back knees were swollen and rubbed raw.
But Kelsie fell in love with the horse and wanted to do everything she could to nurse her back to health. For five straight nights, Kelsie slept in the barn to be near her. She thought if she was going to die, she wasn't going to die alone. But nothing short of a miracle happened. Within days, Sunny had a dramatic recovery. She is now on the fast track to being healthy and whole once again. Without the loving care of Kelsie, Sunny surely wouldn't be alive today.
Watch the video, below, to see this miraculous story unfold. This is proof that anything is possible with a little determination, compassion, and love.
