Shotgun is walking on his own - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Shotgun gains one hundred pounds in six weeks

Posted: Updated:

In a WSLS 10 follow up, see how far Shotgun has come in his recovery at Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue.

Kathryn Barber, Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue Farm Manager says, "Our only concern is later on we are not sure about some issues he may have in the future. We are pretty sure his immune system is not going to be what it needs to be."

She says you can tell by a horses eyes how they are feeling. These days Shotgun has a twinkle in his eyes and a lot of love around him.

She says, "When we got Shotgun there was such an outpouring from all of the community. People came visited the farm and it was great to see how much people care. Our goal is to help the community to take care of the horses. We want to be a resource for people. I think it has opened up some eyes for people to realize this is going on in Franklin County. It is a sad situation. People are abusing their animals and it has opened up eyes for people to be more aware,so they can be on the look out."

Shotgun like the other horses at the rescue will eventually be up for adoption. R.R. does a thorough check and follows up for five years with people who take them.

Shotgun's previous owners are due in court July 16th.
