Addy – 5/1/15
Addy arrived at Gabby’s Sanctuary ARK on April 30, 2015. She arrived as a starved, abused, and neglected horse. We have learned that Addy is a 4-year-old thoroughbred who won races as a 2-year-old. Her life after that is somewhat of a mystery; however, someone had tried to scratch over the racehorse registration tattoo inside her mouth to disguise her identity. Her regular maintenance (hoof trimming, tooth care, vaccinations, etc.) was nonexistent, causing her leg joints to become sore and swollen and her teeth to decay. She was starved and headed for the slaughterhouse.
Addy – 9/15/15
Since coming to Gabby’s ARK, Addy has concentrated her efforts on eating and regaining the weight she had lost. We have concentrated on getting her teeth, hooves, sores, and other medical problems resolved. Addy is a sweet, trusting, affectionate horse. She is not yet ready to carry a rider because of lingering joint problems, but has made amazing progress over the past few months. We look forward to the time when she is whole and strong.
