HOUSTON – A female baby horse, also known as a filly, was born on Memorial Day to a horse rescued from a neglect situation in La Porte last September.

It’s a happy conclusion for a story that began in the public eye in September when the filly’s mother and 10 other emaciated horses were removed from a property in La Porte in the 1700 block of Sens Road after the owners failed to properly care for the animals.
