It is Gem’s birthday!
It is Gem’s birthday! Last year she was born a healthy wild foal at Butcher Jones to Sapphire. But she sustained an injury in her fetlock. We rescued her when she was only 3 weeks old; she could no longer keep up with her band and was septic. The infection was eating her fetlock joint and growthplate. The vet recommendation was euthanasia, as the chances were very slim that she would ever be sound. However, with your financial support, you made her recovery possible! Gem today is living proof of how wild horses are miraculous survivors. She has NO lasting effects from her ordeal and she runs like the wind! We just LOVE how wild horses prove what miraculous survivors they are time after time. We want to thank all of her sustaining sponsors and everyone of our volunteers who have had a hand in her upbringing and training and care taking. Gem says thank you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEM!!
