Cynthia Gilbert is seen smiling at her horses Cypress, 7, left, and Wiley Woo, 5, both retired thoroughbred racing horses, Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012 at M&H Stables in Naples, Fla. The horses are bonded and this is one way of showing affection toward one another, nuzzling their noses together. Gilbert recently started up Horse Rescue of Southern Florida in July. The equines came by way of donation, of which both suffered career-ending injuries. "I had a friend sick with breast cancer who asked me to help take care of her horse," Gilbert said. "People kept saying, 'You're really good them.' Then it got me thinking maybe it would be nice to have a horse. Then all of a sudden it was, why not start a horse rescue."
