Starfish the pony was purchased at an auction in October 2007 for $5.00 He was headed for the slaughter truck. He was very thin, very lame and could not eat hay. We fed Starfish soaked pellets and alfalfa cubes for four weeks along with his pal Miss Espy.
It was determined that because of his age (30+ years old) and the advanced stage of arthritis, we would euthanize him to set him free from his crooked and painful body. He was loved and cared for and left this world with dignity and a full stomach.
