Sue Chapman, of Frisco, Texas, has a non-profit organization that helps raise money to provide monthly trips to save animals that are sick or weak, before being taken to slaughterhouses. Her organization is called Becky's Hope Horse Rescue, and Sue gets to help animals in need, which she loves.
On one of her trips, she headed to North Texas, with the goal of saving nine mini donkeys before they would head off to Mexico to get slaughtered. She grabbed the donkeys and headed back with them. Yet, when she arrived at her destination, she noticed an impostor standing amongst the donkeys.
The old frostbitten horse was not going down without a fight. Supposedly, he somehow freed himself from the stall his owners put him in, before they were going to send him out to get killed. He trotted his way over to the donkey pens, who were waiting for Sue to arrive. When Sue arrived, she did not see the horse mixed in with the donkeys. Sue shared:
"I don't know if he just decided at that moment that he loved donkeys, or if he decided at that moment that he's the donkeys' caretaker."
We will never know what the reasoning really was behind why the horse did what he did, but his little maneuver ended up canceling his trip to the kill house. Sue decided to take the horse home along with the other donkeys to save all of them. She feared that if she didn't rescue him, and returned the horse, then she would send him to his death.
They named the horse, 'Bubbles,' and shared his story all over social media. Now Bubbles has become an instant internet celebrity, especially for how he cheated death and ended up getting rescued by Sue. He now lives at Becky's Hope Horse Rescue and is enjoying life. Sue noted that he has not forgotten about his donkey friends either, for he is often found still hanging out with them.

Luckily Sue got to Bubbles just in time, whether she meant to or not. After Bubbles, Sue has tried to raise even more money, to try and rescue more horses out there, who are in situations like Bubbles was.
