Update on Noni
I cannot believe that one year ago Kylie and I drove to Bastrop and brought home this sweet, little mare. Her condition was so poor, she could barely stand up. Besides slowly increasing her feed and giving her all the hay she could eat, the two priorities were contacting Carl, the equine dentist, and contacting Joe our farrier.
As Noni's condition improved, we noticed that she had a problem with both back legs “locking up.” We contacted Dr. Moore and made arrangements to have surgery done on both back legs.
We then sent out a request for donations. Your response was overwhelming.
After surgery, Noni was confined to her stall for 60 days. She never complained and I think she enjoyed her time in the stall. She has completely recovered from surgery and is walking, running and bucking without any problems.
Noni’s recovery is truly an amazing success story. This little mini stood in someone’s backyard without any attention, very little food, and no training for years. What is so amazing is that she eagerly jumps on the horse trailer and visits nursing homes and hospice as though she has been doing it all her life. She is so sweet, patient, and kind to the residents and patients. She also enjoys her new, young friend, Violet. Violet brushes Noni and walks her through the obstacle course.
