But the more you give, the more love you share! Plus, we’ll send you or the recipient a framed photo of your horse, along with his/her story.
If you really wanted to see them, we could show you pictures of Hazel’s hooves before we able to treat her. But they’re hard to look at. And we don’t know what kind of neglect she must have suffered for them to become so damaged.
We only know she arrived at Miracle Ranch barely able to stand. She wouldn’t allow anyone to get near her, and that was alarming not just because we couldn’t help her. She was also, obviously, very pregnant. Carrying that extra weight, when she could barely stand at all, must have been agony. We were all relieved when baby Sam was born.
Our trainers worked hard to gain Hazel’s trust. As we did, little Sam demonstrated no fear of humans. He was an instant – and persistent– little lovebug! The fact that Hazel didn’t try to keep him away from us showed that she wasn’t afraid of humans, she was just in a lot of pain.
We were soon able to treat and rehabilitate Hazel’s hooves, but she’ll always have a limp. And, as it turns out, just like little Sam, she loves a good scratch and a cuddle. Sponsoring Hazel would be like regularly giving her that scratch and cuddle she craves. Choose Hazel for virtual adoption today!
