I'm glad to hear that the vet thinks she'll be okay. I'm glad she ended up with someone who cares enough to help her out:) It just seemed like, at first glance, she was in enough pain to be miserable, and possibly never very healthy again.

Thanks so much sugar. No I would have never kept her alive if the vet or myself thought she would live a life of pain. I was so relived when he said he thought she could make a full recovery. She's on stall rest with limited hand walking and bute therapy for one week. Then limited turn out during week 2.

She's such a special filly. Wish you could all meet her. How a horse could be this friendly and sweet after how she's been treated I will never know

Horses are so incredibly forgiving. Most of the ones I've owned have been rescues of one variety or another, and if you feed them and show them you care, they turn into very loving animals.

weefoal; I am so glad thier are people like you who put themselves out to help animals who can't help themselves. I have had a wonderful horse who, due to a tumour, had her eye removed, and she coped beautifully; even learnt how to jump afterwards, and was great in traffic. To the people who have said put her down; whilst I agree that rescues could spend thier funds perhaps more wisely, by making that decision for an elderly or extremely sick horse, I find it a callous attitude to take towards one so young, whose injuries are horrific but curable. Weefoal, I am really struggling with money myself, so can't help out there, but I am just an email away, if ever you wanted to discuss anything regarding rescues or welfare, or just having a down day or problem to mull over. This pony will come right!!

Hi Silly

The lameness is due to being ridden and a lack of muscle/weight so it injured her stifle. She's so thin which you don't really see in the pictures. He put her body condition score at a 2 which is pretty thin. But he felt we got her in time before her body ate too much of what muscle she has and because she's so young. We are not going to remove the eye right now as it is not causing pain and is not infected anymore. He said in about a year when she is up in weight and muscle the eye can be dealt with.

Someone donated her vet bill plus some extra for her re check in 2 weeks. God bless that person!!! I really feel for about 350.00 we will turn Trinitys life around and she will make someone a fabulous horse when she's adopted out when she's better.

If anyone wants to though the rescue itself always needs donations of dewormer, supplements, blankets, halters etc. Brenda runs that rescue and is just a wonderful lady. Right now she is rehabbing a bunch of horses from the track here.

Here is Trinity watching the foals play. She was so fascinated. Thanks for reading her story. Its going to be so hard when I tell her goodbye.

I have two fly sheets that need a home, would they take them? I ordered them a while ago, one is too big, and the other too small for my mare.

I know that you will be sad when she goes home but you will always know that she is making a difference in someone's life. You never know the new owners might keep you in touch and even allow you to ride her when she is ready to be trained. I know that if I had Trinity I would always keep you posted of what she is up to. Does she by chance have papers? She looks to be of qh breeding.
