Quarterhorse - Josie - Large - Adult - Female - Horse
Josie is a lovely jet black Quarter Horse mare. It is hard to tell how old she is because she is a cribber and has worn most of her front top teeth away. We estimate her to be around 20 years old. Josie's owner abandoned her at a local farm where she lived outside for several years. One woman in particular looked out for Josie over the years, but she could not afford to take her. The farm owners no longer wanted Josie on the property. Her old owner's number had been changed and she'd left no forwarding address. This left Josie in a very vulnerable spot. If a home couldn't be found Josie would be sent to the auction where she would go for slaughter. There was even talk of her being used for research where she would have spent her life as a guinea pig, only to be destroyed when she was no longer useful. However, the passing of Lena had opened up a spot on our farm, and we were able to take Josie in. Josie had once been a brood mare, but little else was known about her. We think she was a halter horse and she may be broke to ride, but we don't know for sure. It was clear right away that she wasn't comfortable when she arrived. She stood with her belly tucked up and walked stiffly. Josie struggled to stand when we had her hooves trimmed. The vet came out and examined her and felt not only did she have bad arthritis in her hocks, but also a problem with her left stifle. We decided to have her hock lower joints injected to hopefully make her more comfortable. Josie shares a field with our handsome Partly Cloudy. She is completely enamored with him. She follows him everywhere and always needs to have him in her sight. Josie is adoptable, but only as a companion. She is very gentle and has a lovely disposition and is good to work around, but she has arthritis in her left stifle and both hocks. If you do not have room in your home for Josie, please think about sponsoring this lovely girl or donating towards her care. She could really use some sponsors!
