Jody was a 34″ miniature, 15 years old, who foundered some years ago. No intervention was provided by her owners to help alleviate her pain or correct her front hooves. Xrays revealed severely deformed and rotated coffin bones but Jody had a strong will to live and bravely accepted the farrier work every eight weeks. After eight months, we knew that no amount of treatment was going to correct her lameness and more importantly, alleviate her pain.
Sadly, Jody was euthanized on May 30, 2007. Her sweet nicker is missed every day. She rests in peace at Ruby Ranch Horse Rescue.
