Blax came in with companion, Lady. These two horses were reported to us by someone living close by. They were in terrible condition despite a vet and the RSPCA being involved for over 14 weeks.
They were both kept in a sopping wet, muddy paddock and we had to ask for bedding to be put down. Lady was 32 years old and emaciated and Blax had sustained an injury to her leg and was struggling to walk. We had to weigh up whether it was safe to move her, but if we didn’t she would have to be put to sleep. Eventually we were able to get both horses signed over to us and after five hours we managed to catch them using a jab stick. Sadly, Lady died after five weeks – she became too weak to stand. Very often in these severe malnutrition cases, the horse lives on adrenaline and when they come in knowing they are safe, they then feel they can let go.
Blax’s leg healed very well and she loves her life at Remus.
