We rescued this emaciated 30+ year-old pony mare on 6/10/19, whose elderly owner thought “putting her out to pasture” in a banana grove would sustain her until she passed. We see this time and again, where people do not understand that the grass and forage in South Florida has little to no nutritional value, and that horses starve and die if left to graze here without supplemental feed and hay. This sweet senior is now safe with us. At her age and precarious state of health, we are guardedly optimistic about her recovery.
