Lady-Lu, an extremely elderly horse of 40+ years, arrived at Wild Places the first week of August 2015. She was very skinny, but has gained about 140 pounds since her arrival here. Because she has almost no teeth, she is fed a special "mash" (soaked alfalfa pellets, beet pulp, senior horse grain, corn oil, senior supplements, probiotics, and joint supplements) to help her keep weight on. When she arrived, she immediately needed dental work, deworming, hoof trimming, and vaccinations. She also has severe arthritis.
** Note that Lady has gained even more weight since this "after" picture was taken -- she's doing great!
