Willow was rescued with four other abandoned horses, including a foal, from a vacant field in the infamous 8.5/East Everglades on Thursday, May 18, 2017. An anonymous caller reported them to us in the nick of time – had they been left any longer they would not have survived. (For media coverage, click here.)
We have Willow listed as a Grade horse, but she may have some Thoroughbred in her given her spindly legs! She will be in quarantine for 21 days with the others, and will be available for adoption once healthy. Please check back for progress notes and photos, and consider donating to help with her care.
7/18/17 UPDATE: Willow is such a pretty young filly who is making very good progress! Besides the obvious improvement in her weight and overall health, she is now easier to catch and lead. We’re working on her ground manners, getting her used to being handled and brushed. Still working on the legs! Check back soon for updates and new photos.
