Our horse of the day today is Grace

Grace has been with us since 2007 and was adopted once. She was returned when her family lost their employment and her return is based on our contract established in 2001. When Grace arrived in Jan. 2007 she came to us with a horrid injury to her right rear leg she had sustained in September of 2006 and was never treated. The injury was caused by a piece of corrugated steel roofing which blew off a shade due to the high winds we have in Southern NV. Infection and proud flesh had developed and the proud fleshed area would rupture. The day after she arrived we had two vets examine her. She was placed on massive doses of antibiotics and scheduled for surgery. However, just prior to the surgery both vets wanted to try a powder that eats away at the proud flesh. Grace had a softball size proud fleshed wound, which was doctored twice daily. She did not like this as it is a caustic powder, but it worked, therefore the need for surgery was eliminated and the possibility of being permanently lame. She does get a bit stiff on occasion but if the surgery been done, both vets confirmed it may have involved cutting into tendons etc. causing permanent laming. She does have scarring on that leg. Per the vets, Grace can be utilized for just light trail riding and does require an experienced rider.

Grace is adoptable if you are not looking for perfection, but in the meantime she is seeking sponsor(s).
