Abby was saved from the New Holland Auction which serves as a slaughter pipeline to Canada where horses are slaughtered and shipped overseas for human consumption.
Abby is a 9 year old Grey appaloosa pony mare who is in training with us to be part of our outreach, lesson and show team programs.
She was pulled from the broker lot the day after thanksgiving 2012 and joined our resident herd officially the day before Christmas! She has foundered in the past and has chronic laminitis (equine metabolic syndrome) and we are working hard to correct the damage to her hooves as well as maintain her at the appropraite weight and on the correct types of feed. She is quite the outgoing character and we now there are great things in store for her!
Abby (affectionately known as Boo) is generously sponsored by her Guardian Angel Taylor B. and her family! Thank you Taylor!!
