Miss Espy was purchased at the same auction as Starfish. She was a well registered 24YO quarter horse, very calm and friendly and very thin. She was also headed for the slaughter truck and a friend of Ruby Ranch Horse Rescue felt she deserved better than that.
Miss Espy was diagnosed with a long history of founder along with severe dental problems and pervasive staph infection of her skin. She gladly ate all the soaked pellets and alfalfa cubes we provided and was humanely euthanized on November 30, 2007. She was buried with her pal, Starfish.
