When Fancy’s owner passed away, this darling little pony was left alone with an Arabian horse and some dogs to fend for themselves. Their owner had been sick and could no longer afford the care of her animals, even before she died. A neighbor realized what had happened and called Redwings. When we arrived, we found the two huddling together in knee-deep mud in the pouring rain. Unfortunately, the Arabian was so emaciated it needed to be humanely put out of misery. The pony, however, was in better health, except for her extremely long hooves.
As soon as Fancy arrived at Redwings, a veterinarian evaluated her and found that she was about 15 yrs. old and healthier than expected. The farrier trimmed and reshaped her hooves, so she could walk more comfortably. She is now happily adopted.
