Many of the horses are thoroughbreds who once had bright futures just to fail after injuries. The horses have various ailments; Fussilli is a 4-year-old thoroughbred with excellent breeding, he was oxygen deprived at birth, yet his owners insisted that he be saved. After a year of 24 hour a day care, including physically helping him stand up every few hours, the owners gave up on him, abandoning him at Double J Ranch. He is attentive, pain free, and very gentle to all people. His current condition is best described as cerebral palsy.
