Lindsay is a Quarter Horse Mare, who stands 15.2 hands, and is approximately 18-20 years old. She was saved from a Pennsylvania kill pen with a severely infected leg. Lindsay was in rough shape going into quarantine (QT) pictured on the left. All four of her legs had fresh scars from being wrapped in wire or something equally horrid. While in quarantine (QT) her leg had to be lanced to help drain the infection. She was treated with two rotations of antibiotics – Exceed and SMZ. The photo on the left was taken before she started QT under the care of Amy Brown.
On September 28, 2016 Lindsay arrived at the rescue along with Happy. She had gained some weight during QT and her infected leg had gone down significantly. Lindsay was supposed to go to a therapy program before we found out about her injuries in QT. She appears to be sound but is a bit older than we were originally told. Lindsay has been through hell and back, but with the great care she received in QT, along with our rehabilitation efforts, we are building her up and she will go to a very special home when she is ready for adoption. Lindsay has a great personality – despite all she has been through – and gets along well with visitors and the other horses at the rescue.
