Little Red Ferrari was living with a family who had tried to address her chronic cribbing problem but could not get it to stop. They contacted Mid America Horse Rescue to tell us about the problem, they had vet care for her and did not know what to do. We had to make a space ready to take Ferrari in. We are addressing her cribbing issue with making sure there is nothing she can chew on, removing a round bale holder that she sucks air off of (she is better just having a pile of hay available to her without any type of holder), beet pulp/grain mix as her teeth are pretty worn down. She is 8 years old and a real sweetheart. Please come see her!
Folks as you can read Ferrari is a special needs case. She was given to us by her owners who loved her dearly but just did not know how to deal with her chronic cribbing problem. She is on the road to recovery though. Since she came to us September 16, 2008 we have already seen her gain 5 pounds, yea Ferrari. We have blocked off every possible item she can crib on and have given her almost 24 hour attention/care with our dedicated team at Mid America Horse Rescue. She has been started on a deworming program and we are gradually increasing her feed. She has a sparkle in her eye this week and has made friends with 2 older Quarter Horses that were former trail horses who are in the same program as Ferrari. She is grateful for their company, her feed, the love (she is super affectionate and loves attention) and the second chance at her new life. Ferrari will be with us for a while but we welcome all visitors for her, all feed donations, all time donations, etc. Will you help us with Ferrari? If so, select the How to Help page to help as she goes through her recovery. Interested in volunteering with Mid America Horse Rescue and getting to know and help all of these horses?
