At Gypsy Heart Horse Rescue, Ramona Foxworth said the horses that come through here have been abused and most of the time they're skin and bone, just hanging on for their lives.
"One of the horses I took in last year, had been wounded he'd been hit by a 2x4," she said.
"I have heard more horrible stories."
Foxworth said the horses she rescues have been through horrible situations.
"She survived, I mean just strong willed, by the time we got her, her hooves were huge, grown out just very weak," said Foxworth about one of her horses.
She said the horses they accept are malnourished and fighting for their lives.
"Gaining their trust takes a while and to get that spirit back some times takes a little while," she said, "when they realize we are going to feed them, were going to care about them, and take care of them."
Foxworth said she rehabilitates the horses with love and lots of hay.
"When we give them that first hay, it's pure joy. They are so happy and that hope comes back."
During these rough times Foxworth said she holds on to hope for the horses.
"They lose weight; they basically just become a skeleton."
After receiving much needed love, Ramona said the gentle giants learn to trust her 100 percent.
"We will love them, we will take care of them, heal them and that we will do our best to get them to a home that they are loved and they're some child's very best friend."
Throughout the years Gypsy Heart Horse Rescue has been able to save more than 100 horses who've now all been adopted out to loving families.
Currently there are three horses who need a home, if your interested visit the website at gypsyhearthorserescue.net
