Bambi (Champagne's Royal Maid)
Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse
Approximate Date of Birth: 1/1/1988Sponsor: Genesis 1:24-25
Bambi is a Tennessee Walking Horse. What most people first notice about her is her unusual color. Bambi is a classic champagne, the rarest of the champagne colors. The other thing that volunteers quickly discover about Bambi is that she is a very talkative girl. Bambi has an amazing range of vocalizations and spends a lot of time talking to the other members of her herd and to her equine neighbors.
We suspect that Bambi suffers from Equine Polysacchardie Storage Myopathy (EPSM), which is sometimes referred to as "Tying Up Disease." We carefully monitor her diet, maintaining high levels of fat in her diet. In addition to EPSM, Bambi has lameness in her left rear leg. While we don't ride Bambi, volunteers love grooming her, doting on her, and "talking" with this lovely girl.
