Regal has gained nearly 200 pounds, but he still has quite a ways to go. The good news? He now has a sponsor — Purina Feeds has donated to Regal’s rehabilitation. Here is how he’s doing.
We can all use some good news, positive press and uplifting images these days, so here’s an update on Regal, the American Quarter Horse that was rescued from a starvation situation in East Tennessee earlier this spring.
Regal is settling into his new life so very well! Jennifer, his adoptive owner, is constantly monitoring Regal’s diet and the local Purina Feeds rep, Casey Henry, is working with Jennifer to assure Regal gets the best nutrition possible. As part of their nutritional outreach program for rescue horses, Purina Feeds donated a half-ton of Purina Equine Senior for Regal! All those bags of senior feed are showing in Regal’s glowing skin!
Interestingly, one byproduct of Regal’s starvation is he has now lost all his old coat! Currently regrowing a whole bunch of peach-fuzz, Regal is looking adorably hairless these days, but he is steadily gaining weight and loving life. Enjoy the pictorial progress report!
