We’re starting to sound like a broken record, but here is yet another emaciated horse we rescued on 8/1/17 with Ag Patrol in the 8.5/East Everglades area of SW Miami-Dade. The remote locale has become an infamous dumping ground for horses, dogs and other animals, and it’s patrolled regularly by law enforcement.
Ransom’s body condition score is a 1 on the Henneke scale, the lowest rating. It will take months to get him back to a healthy weight. No other issues or injuries have been noted at intake. Like all our rescues, he’ll get immediate vet and farrier care, and will be in quarantine for a total of 21 days, during which he’ll receive lots of healing TLC from our staff. Please check back for updates.
8/13/17 UPDATE: Ransom is eating well and looking much better. He’s a shy guy, but very sweet!
