Penny arrived in late May, 2012, She was 22 years old. She was about 100 pounds underweight and needed a dental and her infected hooves to be treated. She gained the weight she needed within several months.
She lives with 2 older mustang geldings and is very bonded to Red. She also enjoys flirting with 3 more geldings on the other side of the fence.
May 2016- Penny was slow to shed out and also was losing muscle mass and just not seeming very perky at age 26. We suspected Cushing’s disease, fairly common in old horses, and our vet prescribed a trial of Pergolide used to treat this disease which is over-active adrenals. Two weeks after starting it, she is perky, shedding and regaining muscle along her topline.
