Freya is a 30+ yr old chestnut, Morgan type mare who came to SAFE with another gelding, Nyx. Sadly, their owner was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was struggling to care for them. They both had very overgrown hooves and a month before coming to SAFE a farrier trimmed their hooves too short. At SAFE, we have them in a paddock with soft footing to keep them more comfortable. Both horses are very sweet over the fence, a little pushy in their paddock, but overall gentle. We were told that Freya is a sweetheart with a strong opinion.
All SAFE horses are adopted with a no-breeding clause, no exceptions.
Two new friends arrived at our farm last week. Freya is a 30+ yr old Morgan type mare and Nyx is a very large BLM Mustang. Sadly their owner was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was struggling to care for them. The two horses had very overgrown hooves and about a month ago, a farrier trimmed them way too short, causing them both a great deal of pain and discomfort. We have them in a paddock with soft footing and they’ve already seen the vet for checkups and floats! They even got a spa day (bath time) and both did great. We had xrays done for Nyx on his two front feet. It looks like he has thin soles after getting trimmed a month ago. Most likely just trimmed too much off, too fast, but luckily no rotation. We are going to give him time to grow his feet out and possibly get him shoes with pads on them. For now, we have him on soft rides on his front feet 24/7 to help ease the pain.
The two horses are very sweet over the fence, but they can be a bit pushy on the ground, so as soon as they’re feeling better, they’ll be starting with our horsemanship program to find out what they know.
