Here's a feel-good story for you: New Found Glory's Chad Gilbert recently came across an ad for a horse (whose name is also New Found Glory) and purchased it, saving the animal from an impending slaughter (via Billbaord). 

“Everyone thought it would be great for the band,” Chad tells TMZ

With the aid of Freedom4Horses, NFG completed the transaction and found the horse a good home in Texas, which they hope to visit sometime soon.
