Introducing Story

Hello all!

I am new to the forum, but I would like to introduce to you the mare I just purchased today! My old mare passed in Nov. and I wasn't planning on getting another horse.. My farrier mentioned this horse to me who is in dire need of help as she is foundered and was going to be put down if I hadn't bought her.

So without further ado, meet Story.

getting her ready for the trailer to bring her home! (I am putting the boots on her.. that is her previous owner holding her)


being silly


home! waiting for someone to take off her helmet for her


just checking everything out..


and lastly a picture of her and I


I feel very blessed to have her and I hope that with the help of my farrier we can get her better, and maybe even riding sound. Thanks for reading!

ps. I have made a blog to track her recovery progess, I am hoping one day it can encourage someone to fight founder with their horse- or rescue a foundered horse!

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail
