Summer was a lovely chestnut mare with a flaxen mane and tail. She was one of several horses seized by Animal Control in 2008 as part of a large neglect case, and the very fact that she survived is a testament to her strength & will to live. She was extremely sweet and quiet, loved to be groomed and scratched. Summer spent 6 years with SAFE, available for adoption as a companion, and along the way, she made many friends at the foster homes where she was cared for. When Summer’s arthritis began to cause her discomfort and difficulty getting to her feet, we let her go peacefully, surrounded by many people who loved her.
