The Rescue by rachiesmif3 The Rescue by rachiesmif3
In a land far from ours there is an island where golden horses once roamed as wild and free as the seagulls. For hundreds of years they lived in peace and harmony with the other mythical beats of their land until, one day, the people came.

Humans found these wonderful animals that paired for life and lived to be hundreds of years old. They were beautiful and mysterious and everybody wanted one. The best thing about them, as far as the pirates were concerned, was their poo; solid gold.

So people captured them, caged them, imported them back to their home country to sell and settled on the island to attempt a breeding programme. But the golden horses were not the only equines. Over half the horses were charcole black with dull coats, poor conformation and only half the size of the golden ones.

So the black ones became the main food source for the pirates and soldiers who had claimed the island and all it contained. They slaughtered them and sometimes even tourtured them for fun. Little did they know that the black foals would grow into the handsome golden beauties for which so many desired.

Pairs were separated and many golden horses pined themselves to death. In the end there were three horses left; a foal and her parents. The last foal had been caught and tethered ready for the voyage home but her parents had no intentions of letting the humans drag one hoof of her onto their ship. They waited until the coast was clear and they rescued her. Several men saw what happened and that was when theyr realized their mistake. The last ever recorded sighting of the golden horses were of them galloping into the waves and swimming into the open ocean.
