TB in need of rescue its so hard
I know there are so many in need but it is so hard to see their faces. This a 4 yr old mare that fractured her leg in a race. The owner deep into racing, is going to put her down. She needs 5 months of stall rest. She could make a great broodmare she has Secretariate in her pedigree. Its so sad. People who want TB want them for eventing jumping dressage etc. She can't people who want a trail horse would have serious retraining to do. She hasn't seen pasture time since birth. Ugh. It hurts the heart. Not much anyone can say. I can afford to board her at my farm but I would need to hire someone to retrain her and even then she might not ever make a great trail horse. On top of that one of my geldings is a proudcut and would she would make life a lot tougher. Even if I housed her through the coming winter what would the likely hood of rehousing that kind of rescue?
