On Labor Day, Gabby’s Sanctuary ARK acquired Bella, a 3-month-old female quarterhorse. Bella was orphaned when a stallion attacked her mother, a winner of $35,000 in prizes at the racetrack. Since then, Bella has not gotten the nutrition that she would have received through her mother’s milk, and is undernourished and fragile. Bella was also born with a hernia.
Because of her rough start in life, baby Bella has special needs: nutritional supplements, special feed, and veterinary services. She will need a lot of TLC over the next few months, which she will receive at GSA. After just a few days, she is starting to look more energetic, has gained some weight, and is getting comfortable with being handled (although she does have a bit of an attitude when it’s time to go back inside the stall).
You can make donations to GSA through PayPal on this website. Give us a call and come out to meet Bella!
