Thank you for saving Lusia!

A moment ago Lusia had nothing, not even a name. Now, thanks to you, she not only has the name, but also a good, loving home where she will never be threatened again! Lusia is already under the professional care of a veterinarian, and a blacksmith will also take care of her. Thanks to you, the old mare has a chance for a decent, peaceful retirement, thanks to you there is a future full of love and care for her. Thank you on behalf of Lusia!

Lusia, we named her Lusia. We didn’t look for a name for a long time. We were afraid that we would lose valuable time. We were afraid that we would not make it. Because for Lusia, time is very precious. For her, the time already runs, runs differently and faster. There are scraps of it.

Don’t think that no one is slaughtering such horses. They are not expensive. Their lives are valued minimally, but no one lets them live to see their days anyway.

I don’t know what Lusia was doing. I don’t know where she was born, but I know it was a long time ago. I do not know who was her owner, but I know that whoever it was, she was exploited immensely. And at the end of their journey together, he just gave her up to earn some more. Because he could.

Today Lusia lifts her head with the last of her strength and looks at me with beautiful but tired eyes. She’s asking for nothing. She sways on short, crooked legs and snorts softly. Her tiny nostrils barely suck in the air, but they crawl into my hand. Because she trusts a man after all. As if she did not want to take away her worst memories, as if she wanted to live the last weeks with dignity, full of faith that it was worth waiting for so many years.

Well, I won’t write anything more for you. Lusia just is. Still is. Old ponies go to slaughter like old horses and donkeys. Her life does not cost a fortune. It is only PLN 2700 including transport (680 USD). And I don’t even know whether to write to you about diagnostics and treatment, because there is no cure for old age.
