About this item

When many horses outlive their usefulness to humans, they are treated as disposable – auctioned off and sent to the slaughterhouse. But thanks to the work of rescue organizations and horse sanctuaries, many of these formerly unwanted horses are enjoying genuine appreciation and newfound freedom. The horses in this book were abused, neglected, abandoned, rejected. They are lame, old, blind, or just unattractive according to the modern ideas of beauty. Some are crossbreeds with no clearly defined bloodline. Others are wild horses forced off public lands. These are horses enjoying a second chance to live a meaningful and dignified life. They are here to teach us different measures of value, measures we have almost forgotten. To document these remarkable creatures, acclaimed equine photographer Tony Stromberg traveled to sanctuaries across North America. While many horse books focus on exotic, flashy breeds or famous thoroughbreds, Tony chose to capture the soul of “working class” equines – many enjoying love and freedom for the first time. Through gorgeous photography, Forgotten Horses reveals the profound spirit of these amazing animals and honors the people and sanctuaries that have offered them a well-deserved home.
