We're so thrilled that Henry has wonderful people to care for him now.

Video of a senior pony finding a new lease on life after being neglected has us smiling from ear-to-ear today — and we know it'll touch so many people out there too. According to the footage from @ohkaytacos, Henry the pony was in a bad situation before being found at an auction by Colby's Crew Rescue. But now the organization is sharing Henry's incredible transformation, earning cheers from across the internet. 

Henry's journey was documented by TikTok creator @ohkaytacos, who has been there since the poor pony was "dumped" by his former owners. "Henry was thrown away by his previous owners. He was the worst case of pure neglect my wife Ally had ever seen," the video's text overlay reads. "His hooves were terribly overgrown and he was bleeding from a kick to the face by a much larger horse resulting in a facial fracture. He was matted with first and filth," it states. But then Henry was found by Colby's Crew and his glow up is so important to see.
