Betsy Rose, a frail and weak little mare who had almost starved to death, arrived at Beauty’s Haven on June 14, 2013. With no muscle or fat on her body, she was too weak to stand, hold her head up or even swish her tail. Betsy Rose received round the clock care and stayed in a sling which became her lifeline. As each day passed, Betsy Rose began to spend less time in the sling, walked a bit further and stayed awake a little longer. On August 14th, after having her teeth corrected, she was able to walk and graze without assistance for the very first time. By October, Betsy Rose no longer needed the sling. Betsy Rose never stopped believing in herself. We are so proud of this little mare who has touched the hearts of countless people throughout the world. Her courage and love for life are beyond measure – she is truly an inspiration! We are so very Blessed to be part of Betsy Rose’s life.
