Zing, CL Mare Arrives At Angel Acres

Angel Acres

Sadly...Zing has lost hers, maybe you can help her find it!
On Monday, we shared a Craiglist ad for a mare that needed a home (someone sent it to me, I called owner to make sure she would like it shared, etc), the mare was in very poor shape but apparently this was an improvement over how the owner received her 2 months prior.
Photo above left is Zing tied up in front yard of home in CL ad (hauler picked her up today 9-29-12 -she was loose standing in front yard - there is NO fencing ) with what appears to be a dog chain / some sort of wire.
Photo on above right is her about 2 hours after arrival at Angel Acres she appears to have lost weight since CL pic was taken.
Photo above left is her in her old home - sometime in past month.
Photo above right - me talking quietly to her as she eats her first meal at Angel Acres. We are very familiar with refeeding syndrome and will make sure she is brought back to a good weight slowly. She is approximately 250 - 300 lbs underweight.

To make a SUPER long story short, I noticed the CL ad gone a few hours after I shared it and called owner back thinking she had found a home for the mare.

I was saddened to learn that shortly after sharing her ad on our FB page she was flooded with nasty emails & calls. In fear for her safety (some of the emails were threatening) she removed the ad.

Since I posted the ad to our Facebook Page I now felt responsible for her & decided to bring her into the rescue.

What we have learned since she arrived - I am sure there will be more but this is what we know now:
  • She is a 21 year old Appendix (AQHA & Thorougbred cross)...supposed to have had all shots, teeth, etc done...totally NOT the case...she will need to be brought up to date on everything.

  • She is in very poor health, arthritic in the hind, cannot lift feet for farrier & completely blind in right eye.
  • Owner we purchased her from was SEVERELY misled about her and probably should never have purchased her at all.
  • She is SUPER sweet and kind & we hope we can rehab her and she can live whatever time she has left out with diginty and love.
If you would like to help sponsor Zing or make a one time donation to her care please visit our donation page at this link Network For Good - or click button below - this mare needs all the help we can give her.
Thanks so much for being a part of the gang!
