Amber

Description

  • About:Amber is a beautiful 8-year-old sorrel Welsh pony. She is friendly and sweet, and easily approached. She is an owner surrender as her previous owner was no longer able to care for her due to age-related issues. Amber had terrible hooves upon arrival, they were horribly over-grown and hadn’t been trimmed in years. Amber could barely walk and in fact was unable to stand on three legs to be trimmed by the farrier. We had our vet and farrier both out at the same time to anesthetize her and get off as much length as we could. Amber has now been trimmed a second time successfully and is walking much better. Her tendons and muscles are adjusting to proper angles and she is doing very well. She has probably another year before she is completely recovered but she is making great progress. Amber is also on a special diet to help her gain weight as she is underweight, probably due to her previous lack of mobility. She is on hold and we will continue to work with her until she is ready for her forever home.
