11-year-old Fights for Horse
A young Georgia girl is determined to save her best friend, a horse who needs surgery.
11-year old Eva Omstead of Georgia says she saw a weak and malnourished horse four months ago, and was determined to help.
She bought the horse, which she named wind dancer, for $100.
After her mother, Barbara Omstead, an Air Force mission crew commander, was deployed to Iraq, the bond between Eva and her horse grew stronger.
"Every horse is important in their own special way," said Eva, "they're all very special, they've all got their different talents for different things; like he's got a knack for loving me, he's really good at that."
Wind dancer suffers from a bone abnormality. A surgery at the Ocala Equine Hospital may take away the horses pain, but Eva may never get to ride wind dancer.
However Eva says she's still proud of her talented horse.
