Winter Alban, an emaciated mare we rescued on 11/20/16, has a story similar to many others in our care. She was abandoned in the infamous 8.5/East Everglades, left alone and tied to a fence with no food or water. With a body condition score of a 1, her recovery will take months.
4/1/17 UPDATE: What a transformation! After a careful refeeding program and lots of TLC by staff and volunteers, Winter’s health has been restored. Now for the retraining… More ground work, and soon we’ll try her under saddle. Stay tuned!
5/17/17 UPDATE: We’ve done a lot of much needed work with Winter on the ground, and have tried her under saddle with good results. We’re taking it slow and steady with her, and are very optimistic about her training.
If you are interested in learning more about Winter and would like to make an appointment to see her, please email our adoption committee at (only if you are 18 or older). Please note we only adopt within the state of Florida.
