A frantic call was made to TPR making a plea for the life of two year old Thoroughbred filly, That's What I Mint. Ã¢â‚¬Å“In this case, we were able to say YES! We can help her.Ã¢â‚¬Âť says Kimberly Clark, Executive Director of TPR. Due to the extraordinary support of our donors who contributed to our 2013 end of year fundraising campaign.Ã¢â‚¬Âť
Mint had never even raced and now had a slightly displaced slab fracture. The prognosis was very good, with surgery and time to heal. Her breeder/owner could not afford to rehabilitate her so the decision was made to euthanize her. Fortunately Mint had friends who contacted TPR. Thanks to our donors, we had the funding to provide Mint with the care she so desperately needed. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We receive calls like this a lot, sadly we just don't have the funding to give more Thoroughbred racehorses this happy ending to their career.Ã¢â‚¬Âť said Clark.
Spurlock Equine performed the surgery at cost, donating their incredible expertise. Mint is now at a TPR foster farm recovering. She had her five month radiographs done and is now cleared to be turned out. She is at the Metler foster farm turned out with Midnight Terror who is also recovering from surgery at Spurlock Equine. Mint is sound and now we begin the process of finding her the right home! She is up to date on all vaccinations, deworming and dental.
Mint stands 16.2 hands at just 3 years old. She is elegant, friendly and loves human companionship. She is handled daily by her foster mom, Mary. Mint has no vices. We are looking for a home where she will be loved and adored for the rest of her life. We feel she would be an excellent candidate for pleasure/trail after turn out for another 3 months.
Mint is located in Upper Marlboro, Maryland and is available to an approved home. Please me for more information at email@example.com
