Oh my, she looks a million times better. You are such a good person for taking her in and helping her. That must have taken so much time, patience, and love.

So Yesterday I went out to spend a little bit of time with Aesha and she was definitely feeling better...before when I would take her for walks she always stayed a step behind me with her head down...yesterday her head was up ...ears forward...and she was trying to lead me...we worked a bit on getting to where I could approach her without her walking away....she did wonderfully...I was able to follow beside her and pet her and get the halter on easily without so much as her stopping from eating the grass...my funds are currently ran dry but in two weeks I am going to get her on joint/vitamin supplements and get the vet out there...tonight is the first night not going out to the barn and its killing me...I don't get to go back till Saturday...and then she is getting another bath to try and get some more of the crusties off her legs and chest...and spend some more time walking in circles around the arena...you wouldnt think she was 23...even with her condition...she has the heart, strength, and spirit of a two year old...

Good Lord did you do a helluva job on her!
I gotta say, that's one heck of a horse you recused there.
Not only is she beautiful, plus an Arabian (*grin*), she's also an Extreme Sabino. Pretty nifty!
Also, I thought you might be interested in this, regarding the mark on her shoulder.

That mark on her shoulder is often referred to as the "Bloody Shoulder". It started with the Bedouin Tride (one of the finest breeder's of Arabians back in the day) when he rode his mare into battle. He was mortally wounded, leaking blood down her shoulder's as she carried him home.

She gave birth months later, with her foal showing the exact same mark, and since then it was believed to have been blessed by the God Allah.

It's extremely rare, and sure does add market value to someone who's looking for colour, but is most often referred to mares with extreme courage and honour!

I'm glad you found her and will ensure her last years are spent with love!

What a gorgeous girl you've got there. I love her bloody shoulder! That sounds wrong =/

After all those burrs, I'm surprised she even has a tail! My horse came home with that many burrs before, and I almost had a heart attack. It took me 4 hours and an entire bottle of baby oil to get them out. Not to mention, he had a mane down to his shoulder, and the entire thing was matted so bad it looked like he was roached. Needless to say, I was not too happy.

She's so luck to have found you! I'm very happy for her. I love Adira.

I will have my fingers crossed that she recovers without complications. Horses are majestic aren't they? I have seen some that have been in really horrible shape and yet they respond with grace and dignity.
