Demi – Adopted to Her Forever Home!!
Demi is a 12-year-old Registered Paint Mare who stands at 15 hands. Her previous owner had asked this older couple if they would board her at their place for a few months. It became way longer than expected and the owner barely came out. The couple was struggling to keep her taken care of. Demi had injured her knee where she was located. It was very hilly so she might have slipped or something. Her owner called the vet out but could not afford for something to have been done. She was alone with no other horses to keep her company. The rescue was called to help intercept her from going to auction because she would have ended up at Slaughter. Demi has had her knee injury for quite a while now. She should have had some x- rays done and properly cared for, that could have let Demi heal from it somewhat or completely. At this point she has arthritis in all three areas of joints. She is thankfully out of pain since she has been put on previcox. She can run around with the other horses but not for a long period of time. She can never be ridden again because of her knee but could do a little amount of pony rides for little kids. When Demi is fed, she likes to be left alone. Once she is done eating, she wants your full attention! She needs to be a companion to a horse who has a strong personality and will not be afraid to put her in her place. After being here for only 2 years Demi has found her forever home! Many people inquired about her due to her good looks but would loss interest because she is not rideable. Demi had found a forever home with a lovely couple who needed a companion horse for their horse. Demi didn’t adjust quite well there and to make sure no one would get hurt they brought her back.Thankfully, Atlas was a awesome match to their horse so they still had a happily ever after. Our farrier Beth was out that day and said she was interested in Demi. It has been a match made in Heaven! She is doing great with Beth and loving her new home. We hope Demi and Beth with great years and memories to come!
