Horses Undergoing Rehabilitation
The horses listed are currently in quarantine or the rehabilitation process. We treat each horse independently based on their needs. Some horses need to put weight on, others need desensitization training, and some have substantial health concerns, but no matter what, our primary goal is to get these horses prepared to be adopted into their forever homes.
Doc came to us July 30th with a severe case of stringhalt. Poor Doc was unable to step down properly on his hind hooves, resulting in him coming down on the front of his rear fetlocks. It was really horrible. Doc sustained significant injuries to his back fetlocks. Despite his physical condition, Doc remained in good spirits. He has always been a gentleman to handle and work around. He was on stall rest for 3 months, in which now he can be hand walked and exercised daily. It is still not pretty to watch, however, Doc has made tremendous progress. We remain hopeful that he will be able to recover to a point where he can enjoy daily turnout with another mellow horse. Doc has proven to us that he has a fighting spirit.
Given Doc's incredible personality and ease of handling, we would like to make Doc a permanent Ambassador horse. In this position, he will be an educator. He will teach volunteers how to groom, bath, and handle horses safely. He will remain in our care for his remaining years. To keep and care for Doc permanently, we need a sponsor for Doc. Please consider becoming Doc's sponsor today.
