2/7/18: “Gitana,” the Spanish name for gypsy, or wanderer, is a stray filly who found her way to a SW Miami-Dade ranch on February 4, 2018. She is emaciated, with a body score of a 1 on the Henneke scale, and we note she also has a dropped hip. She was treated by our vet on 2/5, who doesn’t see much of a problem with the hip and will be less noticeable once Gitana gains weight. She’s settled into one of our quarantine paddocks now, and started on her road to recovery. Given her condition, we would be very surprised if an owner claims her.
