This is how our day started on Friday. Peggy Sue was down on her bad side and couldn’t get up. When this happens, Peggy Sue doesn’t panic – she just lays there and waits for us to help her. We roll her over and she usually rests for a few minutes and then gets up on her own and runs off. She can’t bend her back leg – it’s stiff – much like a peg leg.
Before Peggy Sue came to us, she was giving birth and her humans tried to pull her baby out. Peggy Sue’s pelvis fractured in three places. She’s a happy little mare that rules the others and she reminds them of that often. We have to put her in a sling to have her feet done, but she doesn’t mind at all.
Peggy Sue is a prime example of why we insist that there is a human on the farm at all times.
We are the “rescue of misfits” but that’s perfectly fine with us – they are all deserving and precious.

Aaleyah Belle’s infamous tongue.
Cricket and Billy continue to improve each day. Dr. Mangan (DVM, DACVO) from AVS in Gainesville checked out their eyes and all is good! Cricket’s old eyelid injury is doing great! Dr. Mangan has been part of our awesome care team for years – even before he went to AVS – when he worked at UF. You can learn more about him by clicking here.
Dr. Specht was also at the farm last week to examine Waylon.
