Princesa was advertised for sale locally and her photo showed her tethered and in poor condition. She was permanently tethered in the campo and was being fed a diet of fruit and vegetables – whatever was growing in the nearby fields. We went to visit her and just had to rescue her. Fortunately her owner wanted a good home for her and not a lot of money!
Princesa is 6 years old and is such a lovely natured mare. It is taking a long time for her to put weight on, but she is growing taller as well. Although we think she is unbacked, her previous owner did leap onto her bareback and stand up whilst she was tethered!
Princesa also has a slightly unlevel pelvis. When she puts more condition on she will begin rehabilitative work to strengthen her back and hopefully prepare her for future work
