In just 30 days after we rescued her, Morning Star is really starting to shine. Compare her intake photos with how she looks today and you’ll see what we mean. Besides gaining weight, Star has learned to relax and trust us. Her abscessed left fore is responding well to treatment and padded shoe. We’re still working on extremely knotted tail, but we’ve seen worse! This lady is beautiful, and will be absolutely stunning when she’s fully recovered. As she’s still rehabilitating, we have not had her under saddle and do not know anything about previous training she may have had.
RESCUE STORY: Morning Star was rescued with Glory on 3/9/19, found stray/abandoned in the 8.5/East Everglades area of NW Miami-Dade. She arrived emaciated with a body condition score of a “2” on the Henneke scale, and with an abscessed left fore.
