Sparkles is just one of the horses that was involved in a pit bull attack last January.
Out of the 5, only 3 survived.
"Each one of them needed so much attention, there was just so much blood," said Kim Sparks, who cares for Sparkle and the rest of Hearts and Hooves. "It was just awful, a nightmare, just a complete nightmare."
Now, just a few short months later, you wouldn't even recognize Sparkles.
She's all healed up and continuing her job as part of the team "Hearts and Hooves."
It's a program where residents like these at Carillon Home can enjoy petting and talking with the miniature horses.
It's the third time that Sparkles has been back at the home, but her presence here couldn't have happened without the help of of the entire city, even parts of the nation.
"Just the giving, has been wonderful and we have felt just so blessed and it's kept us moving forward," said Sparks. "Having all the prayers and the concern, and havin' people say 'we wanna know how they're doing!"
Be on the lookout for a "thank you" celebration from the people of "Hearts and Hooves" for all the support they received during recovery.
They plan to have it at the end of July.
