Nina Rescued 8/28/13

Nina was abandoned by her owners in the desert near our facility.

Her owners were found and turned her over to CFH.  She had been stepped on by her mother when she was a few weeks old and the injury never taken care of.  Her coffin bone and her hoof grew sideways and she was walking on the side of her pastern bone.  X-rays showed severe deterioration of the bone and a very weak tendon holding the foot on.  Sadly there was nothing we could do to ease her pain but let her go to heaven where she now runs free without pain.
