Sultan and King David were rescued from a defunct Thoroughbred racing farm in Orange County. There were 40 horses on the farm and Sultan and King David were the last two. Both had injuries. They were the two most emaciated horses we have taken in to date. Sultan was at least 400 pounds underweight and we were not sure if he was going to make it.  He spent the first few days in the hospital under veterinary care to make sure he would make it. 

The condition they were in was deplorable they had injuries, they hadn't never seen a farrier. sultan and King David are only babies, they were 2 and 4 years old when they came to Villa.

Sultan was so confused when he arrived that even when we gave him alfalfa he didn't know what to do with it.  He just kept eating dirt for the first day he was with us. Here is Monika introducingg him to a fly mask.

This is Sultan today!
