Reba lived her life out at Hooves & Paws Rescue of the Heartland. She was a 25 year old mare when she came to the rescue, an Owner Surrender along with six other horses. She was totally blind in her right eye and had almost no sight left in the other. She was very underweight and had not had any vet care for many years.
The vet came out to see Reba because she was struggling to gain weight and had started to get a thick discharge from her nose. He reached in her mouth to look at her teeth and one of them actually broke off at the root. He said her teeth were infected and most of them would need to come out. She had a severe sinus infection that was filling her nasal cavity. She was full of worms and also had parasites.
She was a wonderful, sweet girl, even after all the neglect she had suffered.
Reba crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, April 2nd, 2008.
