Trinitys Story

Hi All

I just took in a rescue last night for Acer rescue here in Ohio. They are full to the brim and so I am fostering her until they have room. This is a grade yearling paint filly. Very very thin, lame on one leg and has a very bad eye injury. Her previous owner took her on a 30 mile trail ride this weekend even though she had never had a saddle on, has an injured eye and is only a yearling. They said since she didnt buck when they put the saddle on they figured she was ready to ride. Starving horses don't tend to buck a whole lot :(

If anyone can spare some change for Trinitys vet bill I would be so thankful. ACER rescue is just full to the brim. I know this is tough times for all of us but if anyone can spare even just a couple dollars it all adds up. The vet is on his way to see her this afternoon. This little filly is full of potential if we can get her past this bad spot.

Their paypal for donations is horseshorse@acerescue.com





Swollen leg. We don't know if she injured it or if its from the trail ride they took her on

Her eye is smashed in but no one ever called a vet

This is the problem with horse rescues. They keep horses that should go to slaughter and waste money and resources on them. This filly is lame on atleast one leg and blind in one eye and who knows what else? Why make her suffer when it is pretty obvious that she is not going to make a decent horse without a lot of money and work?

She's a pretty damaged little girl. I hate to say it, but it might be better if she was euthanized. F--- people, man. Poor little girl.

I agree to some extent but every horse in my opinion deserves a 2nd chance. With time she might be fine. I would help but right now I don't have the extra money. My prayers are with you though. Has the vet been out. I would see what the vet says. I don't care that she might be blind in one eye. I have a horse that is blind due to an injury but she is great. I can lead the kids on her and she don't panic. She is 13 years old your mare will adapt. My friends horse is completely blind since birth but she does great. I have even rode this mare and she don't panic. Whenever you come up to a log or something you just say Molly pick up and she does just fine out on the trail rides.
There is hope for this mare yet.

Hey everyone is entitled to their opinion

However the vet just left and his opinion is that once she is fed up she is going to make someone a wonderful horse. Her leg is a stifle injury due to being so under weight and ridden. Her eye will always be blind but I have another mare that is missing one eye and it does not harm her in the least. This filly is so smart and willing to learn. She does deserve a chance. Her youth is on her side.

He said the eye was probably an infection that never got treated so turned into an ulcer and then just blew.

If you don't want to help her that is fine I totally understand. Also I am a big believer in euthanasia when deemed appropriate. The vet feels its not in this case and neither do I. Believe me I have put down more rescues then I even want to think about.

Thank you for that! And yes imo prayers are as valuable as money and she could sure use some!

Hey if you need help somewhere else like questions I might be able to help you out. If when things get a little bit more relaxed at the farm then I might be able to help out with some money. I just moved this weekend and had to go buy fencing supplies to build fence for my 6 horses. Keep me posted on her recovery. I am going to school right now to be a vet tech and love the stories of rescues. I will probably be taking in some rescues in a while. I only will foster them until the organization can find them permanent homes.

Thanks so much Equus and I will keep you updated.

I feel strongly that anyone who has ever made a dime off a horse weather it be breeding, training, showing, selling etc should always give back when they can.

This filly has a lot of potential. Will she be a reining champion? Probably not. Will she make a great all around trail horse?? Absolutely. She has the intelligence and the disposition.

Ohh that's awful. That poor girl. She's just a baby. I hope things work out because it looks like she'd make a pretty little mare.

If she isnt in horrible pain there is no reason to put her down. Id love to help, but Im always weary of donating money. Do you need any supplies for her?

Id love to know more about the rescue, do they have a site?
