Fallen Horse Rescue needs your help.

The rescue currently has about 20 horses onsite, and they are running low on funds

For the last eight years, Tom Armstrong has been rescuing horses

“Were a simple little five-acre rescue, and with just a little bit of help we can do a whole lot,” said Armstrong.

And that simple little rescue has about 20 horses.

“The horses that we take in on a scale of 1-10 are a negative 1 or 2,” said Armstrong. “They are pure walking skeletons.”

But after a visit to the vet and a lot of hay for food, “and over time we will get them back to healthy hay horses that you see here,” said Armstrong.

Fallen Horse Rescue picks up horses in a variety of ways. One little horse was probably someone’s Christmas present and they realized that they just couldn’t take care of it.

Two mules were going to be sold for slaughter, but Armstrong purchased them for $40 each.

Another horse was a victim of Hurricane Harvey, and was abandoned in Rockport.

The rescue also has a bull that was in someone’s back yard. In Corpus Christi you just can’t have a bull in your back yard.

All of this takes money, and now Armstrong’s Fallen Horse Rescue is in need of funds.

“I’ve taken bales of hay to people who needed them. Never asked them for a dime. I get tagged on a Facebook page this horse needs help. I’ll load my truck up and we’ll be headed that way,” said Armstrong.
