Shakira was rescued along with her colt Dont’e and 4 other horses from the 8.5/East Everglades in SW Miami-Dade on June 28, 2017. She and the others were unconfined/at large, posing a danger to themselves and the public. Charges have been filed by police against the owner.
7/7/17 UPDATE: Shakira and Dont’e have settled into their quarantine paddock where they’ll be until 7/19. Timid at first, Shakira is more trustful now, as is her colt. She arrived underweight and is nursing, so we’re making sure she gets the extra nutrition she and her colt need. Our next update should show her and Dont’e in more robust health. Stay tuned!
8/17/17 UPDATE: Shakira’s weight and health are returning as you can see in her new featured photo at the top of the page. Beautiful, naturally gleaming coat and filling out nicely. We will be spending more handling time with her to increase her trust. So far, so good!
