Help Save This Wounded Horse!

Update posted by Ann Turri On Jun 13, 2017

This sweet mare has made tremendous progress in her 3 1/2 months at our barn. All of Tula’s wounds are healed, and her coat has recovered beautifully after major hair loss. She continues to gain weight and is building muscle nicely.

Tula’s training is also coming along great! She is super clever and very eager to learn. We can saddle her now and are slowly introducing the idea of carrying a rider. She is handling desensitization very well, which is awesome, considering she spooks rather easily.

Tula is still quite anxious, but given how terrified she was initially, her improvement is quite encouraging. It took weeks for her to eat from our hands, among many other small victories, but now she is very open to these interactions. Given consistency, patience, and heart, she will continue to calm and trust.

THANK YOU for your kind donations and continued support for our program! Without it, we wouldn't be able to take in rescue horses, like Tula, giving them a second chance and a new start.

Tula is looking so much better! (named by Leslie) Her wounds are healing nicely and she is becoming more accustomed to being handled. Although still very fearful of people, she is beginning to trust and relax. With the exception of one deeper wound on her croup, the slashes have healed over and will begin to grow hair soon. She is putting on some weight and her coat already looks healthier. We will continue to post updates here, thank you all for your support!
