Arrival Date: November 2, 2023
Maggie came to us on Nov. 2, 2023, along with the Belgian Draft Horse Bill. They came from the same local rescue/therapy center that is closing. She came to the local rescue in December of 2022. She had reportedly been bounced through auctions and was sitting at an out-of-state kill pen when she was rescued. She is believed to be fifteen years old.
Unfortunately, at some point in her life Maggie experienced an avulsion fracture of the top of the coffin bone (the extensor process). This means that a bone fragment has separated from the rest of the bone and in Maggie’s case it healed inappropriately. This break left her with significant arthritis and deformation of the hoof wall. As a result, she cannot carry riders. We hope that daily pain medication will help provide Maggie with years of comfort.
She is a wonderfully calm mare and loves attention. We think she will be a very popular lady with our volunteers.
