Ariel – Crossed the Rainbow Bridge to Heaven

Ariel – Crossed the Rainbow Bridge to Heaven

Ariel is a 16-year-old Off-the-Track Thoroughbred Mare who stands at 16 hands. Her Jockey Club name is “Rose Island” who had 7 starts, earning $0. After her short-lived career in the racing industry, she sadly found herself in a kill pen. Thankfully, Race Funds found her and was quick to bail her out. She arrived here at the rescue on May 12, 2022. We were quarantining her here at the rescue on the other side of the property with Jasmine who is also quarantining. At first Jasmine was pushing Ariel around since Jasmine is so young. After watching them for a few minutes they quickly became friends! Sadly, on May 30, 2022 we helped Ariel crossed the rainbow bridge to Heaven. Her coffin bone in her front right hoof was pretty much destroyed from the tip to about 2 inches back. While she was here at the rescue, we kept her foot wrapped along with keeping her comfortable. We showed her lots of love to let her know she was safe, and everyone loves her here. She did gain quite a bit of weight since being here. You can see in the last picture of her two front hooves all wrapped up. We are sad we only had a short time with you, but we are happy you didn’t have to ensure the painful and inhumane process of slaughter. She passed knowing love and a loving hand. We love you, Ariel!
