Lucas was found in rough shape but one rеscuеr took a good look at him and thought there was something special about him. She turned out to be right.
This is Lucas, a 7-year-old Thoroughbred Cross horse rеscuеd by World Horse Welfare. He was found as a foal during the winter season with his mother and a group of horses, emaciated, starving, and near-frozen. World Horse Welfare rehabilitated them to good health so they can be rehomed.
Equestrian Colleen Macrae from Scotland was looking for another young horse to take in and train.
She found Lucas on the World Horse Welfare website and thought he could be the horse she needed. Colleen needed a horse that can do everything, riding club, eventing, and showing. According to Colleen, he looked likе he could do it but she needed to make sure.
Colleen arrived at the farm so she can properly assess if Lucas is the horse she needed.
“We went out to the field to see him and put a head collar on him,” Colleen recalled. “[They] said ‘Just walk him around and spend some time,’ which we did. He was so interested in everything in my pocket, including my gloves. I’ll throw a glove and see what happens… He went trotting off likе a dog, picked up the glove, and came back to me. And I thought, ‘He’s my horse.’”
