Look at her now! She has been at the Rescue Farm a short time.
Dixie Kitten has wounds from laying down.
A thoroughbred mare born February 20, 1998. Bred to run and win. Born in Kentucky, home to many thoroughbreds. She won over $110,000 in her racing career. Then her journey is not clear. She may have changed hands several times. She had been bred many times, and her last foal died. Maybe the stress from that loss caused her to severely founder. When SaveTheHorses was called, we were told she wasn't taken care of at the boarding stable. We really don't know what happened to her but we knew she needed help. We couldn't leave her and she laid down more than she stood up because of the pain. Her xrays look terrible but we are following Dr Marcella's advice and trying to keep her comfortable. She's a darn sweet mare. She deserved a change and we are going to give her that chance.
