NEENAAAAAAA

every mule is perfect

amen.

The rest of the world has no idea. If everybody had a mule, it’d be a happier place.

Did you know (according to a knowledgable source but please correct me if I’m wrong) we are the only PATH barn in Texas to use a mule in their program? How sad is that, they are honestly perfect for the job.

Update:
We have news to report of a beloved pony’s passing, we felt we should share with our followers. Last March, AHR rescued a sweet little pony brought to auction, barely able to hobble up to the gate, on three legs. Auction staff informed the owner this pony was not fit to sell, and would be better situated being donated to our rescue. With assurances we would give her a good home, they agreed.Upon arrival at her foster home, Dr Kemper of West Coast Equine Hospital was not far behind. It was discovered Fiona’s lameness was due to a deep infection in her hoof, left to linger for god knows how long. Much of her hoof wall was no longer attached to her hoof. The diseased hoof wall was carefully pared away, the exposed hoof wrapped, and months of antibiotics prescribed. Her health rapidly improved.Not long after, it was discovered little Fiona had another secret: a baby on the way!Exactly one month after Fiona’s rescue, she gave birth to Felicia, an adorable pony filly. All black, with a little star — she looked exactly like a toy, brought to life. For months Fiona seemed to have fully recovered, and both mother and baby enjoyed their life together, now adopted by former foster Ingrid.But sadly, the infection in Fiona’s hoof came back with a vengeance, and despite every treatment provided by West Coast Equine Hospital, it only worsened. Her quality of life was rapidly diminishing, and the old statement of ” no hoof, no horse” is just as true for ponies.So, yesterday morning, Fiona was released from her pain. A pain that came from such severe, long term neglect, there was no recovering. We have seen much of this lately, and it never stops hurting.But what Fiona did have, was every chance given to her, all the love in the world, and a safe place to bring her baby into it. What Fiona had to suffer, Felicia will not. That’s the greatest hope any parent can have for their child.
