Little Gem, could no longer get up by herself. When she went missing from her band we found her in the nick of time, severely dehydrated and septic. Her right front fetlock joint was severely infected. This is a life-threatening condition and she was going to die in the wild.
Since then, (that was August 13th 2017) she has fully healed and can run like the wind. Gem is just like her name suggest, precious.
