Penny after 9 months here

In the summer of 2017, Penny had a severe sand colic & our vet was not sure she’d make it. We feed psyllium one week a month and she had always had all the food she wanted here. She ended up passing 50-100 # of sand over a few weeks. She must have ingested it prior to coming, when she was not being fed enough and was scrounging in the dirt.

She also has a pretty severe heart murmur.

We lost her buddy, Warrior, in January 2019 at age 30. Penny now shares a few acres with 3 other seniors and can be quite bossy.

2019, Penny is now 29.
