Kelsey and her mother were driving in the early morning hours. They were heading to a local flea market in Illinois when they suddenly decided to take a different route down a remote road.
That’s when Kelsey spotted Sunny, a thin and weak horse, eating grass on the roadside. Kelsey felt an overwhelming sadness, but also an instant connection with the young horse who had a swollen eye, whip marks and raw skin.
She felt she was on that road for a reason, and that reason was to save Sunny’s life.
Kelsey got out of the car and tried desperately to guide Sunny into the trailer attached to their vehicle. Sunny refused to budge and was so exhausted that she collapsed on the ground.
However, Kelsey refused to give up on her, and that’s when this incredible teen did the unthinkable.
Kelsey spent the next four hours walking Sunny nine miles back to her house. “A life is a life,” she said. “No matter how small it is, she needed saved.”
Once the pair finally made it back home together, Kelsey slept in the barn with Sunny every night. Should Sunny pass away, Kelsey wanted to be right there with her.
But wait until you see Sunny’s phenomenal transformation that took place in the days following her rescue. Kelsey is one incredible young woman, and she deserves all the recognition in the world.
