After LeAnn Convis’s horse Storm lost her pasture mate, she searched endlessly for another horse to adopt but none felt like the right fit. It was when she went to buy more grain that the store clerk told her about a golden palomino named Kado, who lived just 10 minutes away and needed a retirement home. Will he be a good companion to Storm?
When Storm’s companion, Lightning, died after breaking his leg, she wasn’t the same. She wasn’t eating well and didn’t want to socialize. She was heartbroken.
Money was tight, so LeAnn was looking to adopt another horse or even take in an abused horse. Meanwhile, she was worried about Storm, who stood listlessly in the pasture.
When she heard about Kado, she had to go meet him. She had always wanted a palomino.
LeAnn visited Kado for weeks, slowly building a bond, before bringing him home to meet Storm.
LeAnn wasn’t sure how the two would greet each other. But Storm sniffed Kado and then ran the property, showing her new friend their home.
When she saw Storm come to life again, LeAnn’s heart was full. Storm will always miss Lightning, but Kado helped her heal.
LeAnn visits with the horses daily and knows they’re all meant to be together.
