When her previous owner faced a medical emergency and was taken into the hospital, Nala, along with another horse, was left alone in a field for two weeks without food. Then, a teenage boy came along who took Nala home. He quickly realised the challenges of looking after her properly, so he came looking for help from our sanctuary, and we gladly opened our doors to take her in.
Her timing was perfect, as we unfortunately recently lost two of our beloved equines, but this meant we had space to rescue Nala.
As the pictures show, she is visibly emaciated and has a terrible swayback. She also came in with wounds on her head from a too tight fitting head collar and wounds on her bum. Additionally, she has a fungal skin infection. We are working together tightly with the vet to monitor her health and keep on top of treatment. We have to slowly integrate her meals, as we don’t want to overload her. She is enjoying the space and love in our paddock with two other equines right now. Despite her visible signs of neglect, Nala is already the top of the herd, being dominant to other equines. With people she is incredibly sweet and gentle.
Your support can make a significant impact on Nala’s journey to recovery. If you could help us pay for her veterinary bills, this would be greatly appreciated, allowing us to provide the care and attention she deserves. Together, we can ensure a brighter and healthier future for our sweet Nala.
