Those that know me, know that I basically keep to myself, but in this case - as it is coming to a close - I wanted to share this story, but more than anything, I would like to thank a few of you.

A little over a year ago, I was working at a farm when I ended up taking home a foundering mare. The owners didn't want her and were planning to shoot and bury her. I asked if I could have her. I promised to have my vet euthanize her or I would rehab her and re-home her.

She couldn't walk.... not even a "normal" founder walk. She crab walked. She would swing her front legs way out to the side and bring herself forward. She - although a pretty palomino - was grotesquely obese. She had fat on top of her fat.

She taught me with lightening speed, how difficult it is to support but not pressure a horse that has sunk and rotated.

My first thanks goes to Pat Reilly who was there for me when I had questions in the very beginning. As was Richard Mercer.

I'd also like to thank the wonderful folks at SoundHorse who even donated a pair of shoes to Bella when they learned she was a foundered rescue. She lived in Series 1's with IM for about the first 3 months.

I'd like to thank Tom Stovall for saving me during a freakout moment when her sole had softened under the IM. I was literally losing it at that point and afraid she was going to punch through.... WHEW! I LOVE DURASOLE! Thanks to Bella, my local farrier supply now carries it.

I would like to thank Katy Watts who gave me piece of mind and helped immensely with getting Bella's diet and nutrition right.

Bella now looks like this.... 400lbs lighter

From about month 3 until about month 11, Bella lived in Epona's. I know a lot of farriers don't like them but I use them a lot in therapeutic work and even have some A circuit hunters in them. The sole support, frog and wall support were just what Bella needed. I'd like to thank John and Monique Craig for their support and ingenuity in cases like Bella's. John was there to help me with Metron and Monique with shoeing ideas.

Her rads are here.... new on the left and old on the right. Though not perfect, they are better, she is better and now happily running around in her aluminum century support shoes and heading to her new home in a couple weeks.

And thanks to my good friend for taking rads for me..... though not textbook, they allowed me to use Metron and get the info I needed to help her.

Thanks to the Lord to for listening to my prayers.... my knees got really sore at times.

And last but not least, thanks to my husband for not divorcing me when I brought her home and for all of his love and supportive care for Bella.

Oh, and thanks to Baron because if we didn't have this forum, I couldn't thank everyone and share her story.

Patty,
Thank you, that was timely. Yesterday I made the mistake of going with a lady who thought to rescue a foal. The breeder raises Paint horses for the killer market, and the occasional horse for people naive enough to buy an unhandled, inbred young horse with pretty markings and bad conformation. Foal was in a pen of cripples that cannot be shipped to Canada with the rest. I shall remember it as The Nightmare Pen. The market has been slow, so he has about 500 horses now, lots of stallions, all unhandled. The foal was emaciated, had severe angular limb deformities, physitis, contracted tendons, and was foundered in the hinds. I told her she was not salvageable, kept my eyes on the ground and said ‘get me out of here NOW’. If this filly lives, she will get pregnant and make more just like herself. Local officials will do nothing because they have food and water.
So nice to hear of happy endings connected with my efforts to educate. You’ve done a wonderful job, and I hope that the word continue to get out that foundered horses CAN be rehabbed successfully with the right diet and hoof care program. One will not work without the other. It’s not easy, it’s not cheap, but it does work for those with the means, determination and willingness to learn.
Katy

Ya know, it should be illegal to keep fat horses. I seriously think it should be just as punishable as starving them.

What a sad story Katy :( I send more people to your website than you could ever know. You have really been a pioneer in helping countless horses. I so appreciate you and your work.

Bella is very rideable! She has been out on trails and is getting legged up to go to her new home. A gentleman who has leukemia is going to be her new partner as long as he gets the ok from his Dr. on Tuesday. Bella will really brighten his life and it feels as if she is paying saving her life, forward. Kinda cool. If you peruse the webshots album, you can see her under tack, but since I am short on photographers, don't have any of someone aboard.

Bella got short changed in the conformation line.... but what physical faults she has, she makes up for in lots of other ways.

Well done to all who worked or contributed to giving this horse a chance.

She looks a heck of a lot better.

Great job.

And to Katy? i don't even know what to say. i hope there is a "special" place for the people you posted about.

Really, Really special . . . . . :mad:


The idea of a Creator that I subscribe to provides ,by his very nature, such a "special" place. I believe its filled with people who have demonstrated by their treatment of animals what is in their heart.

What a great story and what great help you had Patty.

Good job, while it takes a team, thats for sure, you should be really proud of yourself (and Jim too :D)
