Nina's story as it appeared in the October 2022 newsletter. It is nice to help out a special person that aided HPS for many, many years. Sometimes we end up in the right place at the right time to help a needy horse in Brunswick County. Our heroin talked to the neighbor and learned the old lady who owned the mare was in her eighty’s and had terminal cancer. The neighbor was able to talk the owner into selling the mare after owning her for about 10 -11 years.
The poor mare had little to no attention in a long time. Where do you start when the girl has had no vet care, dental care, needed groceries and the farrier was needed? Slowly the mare had all her needs met. The veterinarian felt she was about 15 years old and he even helped to untangle a good part of her tail until it became almost impossible and the decision was made to cut the balance of the giant dreadlock out of her tail.
She liked her name Nina. She has come a long way in a few short weeks, but there was a problem. Our heroin had her new heart horse and Nina didn’t want to share her new favorite person with another horse. Nina may be small, but she was tough on the huge boy. Her big gelding already had a best friend and now what to do with Nina? Call HPS!
Nina is a beautiful horse and will be perfect for someone who wants a smooth riding horse, maybe me.
