I was just on thier web site, and sad to say that had to have her put to sleep. Poor mare, too many years of neglect,,, she is in a better place at least she had a nice final few days.

my eyes buldged out of my head and my heart felt like it went in my throat when I scrolled down. That pooor mare. I'm glad there are people out there like you.

After consulting with not only our vet, other rescuers and our farrier, but talking to some of the nation's foremost farriers, the consensus was the chance of any recovery was too slim for it to be fair to allow the mare to go on for. She was basically unable to walk. It was a very sad thing to witness.

it is so sad to hear she couldn't be saved. When I saw those feet I almost puked. I'm no genius with horses but fixing those feet looked next to impossible. Poor girl.

I'm glad she had someone who really cared to spend her last days with.
