Rest In Peace, Ginger.
Ginger is not a product of abuse. She was well taken care of for almost 20 years.
Her owners simply didn't know how to care for an older horse.
She was one of their beloved saddle horses.
They did not recognize their horse's problem for what it was until she'd lost quite a bit of weight.
We are happy they called Ande before it was too late.
Ginger will most likely be back up to snuff and ready for adoption in a few months.
She is broke to ride.
Ginger is looking much better six months later.
Unfortunately, Ginger began to aspirate her food through her nose, and although we tried to nurse her through it, she was unable to overcome the resulting trauma to her system. We had to humanely put her down in March of 2013.
