When we became aware of this horse’s unfortunate circumstances, our hearts went out to this giant baby, who currently did not serve anyone a useful purpose. She had injured her front ankle, at the end of the race season.
She looked so sweet & forlorn upon 1st glance. There was absolutely no question that this wee girl (over 17 hands, aged 2 – 3 ) deserved a more NOBLE existence than the fate pre-selected for her on that truck.
She is very frightened & insecure. Definitely needs some time to unwind & adjust to the new opportunities being extended her way. Within a week, her initial aggression is turning to affection. Her injuries are healing & appear to be not nearly as serious as originally thought. Her emotional scars will take more time & a lot of TLC. We truly believe that all she really needs is a home with sufficient food, shelter & equine companions, & a chance to be the wonderful horse she was bred to be.
Why her? No reason, other than she needs us… needs a chance to just be a horse. Stari Nite Sheri has no known past, but she definitely has a future, so bright it will light up a night sky. What that future is, we don’t know. We are hoping she will help us decide what her noble purpose is destined to be. For now, she’s just a horse… our horse !
