Epona was race trained but never raced. Epona came to the rescue as, owner surrender due to her injuries. Epona has extreme rotation in her front right foot that requires on going care. Epona is an extremely friendly girl who deserves a chance to overcome her injuries and we continue to have the farrier out to adjust and re-access her condition.... (read more)
We see her have some really good days where we are hopeful that she may be able to have a chance at a normal life free of this infliction and free of the pain we see her in on her bad days. We are especially hopeful when she reaches over the stall door to put her lips on ours as a thank you and a silent whisper not to give up on her.
Our goal is to save as many horses that we can and assist them in healing and getting adequate care for any injury or illness they may be suffering from. We know that sometimes just providing a safe and stable environment before they are humanely euthanized due to their illness or injury is part of what we sometimes have to do to ensure that these beautiful animals aren't living a life of suffering. We are hopeful that Epona will heal and can have a chance at a pain free life. We continue to meet with our farrier and vet to discuss Epona and her condition regularly.
We desperately need sponsors for Epona to assist with her specialized care that she requires, please contact the rescue to find out how you can help Epona.
