This lovely mare is now called Rosie aka Desert Rose! Her new mom, Sheila, is a veterinarian in Arizona who believes Rosie is one of the "old style" Morgans. Sheila drove from her home in Arizona to pick up this lovely mare and bring her home. She will receive the best care possible for her hock problem. If she is able to do very light work and exercise, she will be working at a therapeutic riding academy for 2-3 days a week. Sheila is very active with this group. If Rosie  is unable to do this, she will be retired. This is the 7th horse that Sheila has pulled out of a terrible situation somewhere. One was a mustang, one was a grade horse and the others have been Morgans!
Thanks for being such a good friend (and doctor!) to the horses Sheila! We
We made it home safefly, though I'm not sure she could have done a longer drive. She rolled last night and I had to help her up. Hopefully, when she's consistently on medication and exercise, she'll get a bit stronger. She is a very sweet mare and how ever this turns out, she deserves the proper care to live her life out with dignity.
