Maggie is a 15 hand Tennessee Walking Horse mare with great ground manners. She enjoys being petted and groomed.
Maggies ideal person would be someone who loves to groom and spend time with a horse without an interest in riding, as she is not sound enough for riding.
Maggie came to us in summer of 2017 with a history of no hoof care for years and severe lameness for two years. She was very painful in all four feet, but especially her right front leg. She has since been examined by our regular vet and multiple veterinary specialists and a corrective hoof care specialist. She has been diagnosed with laminitis and ringbone (arthritis). These conditions are manageable though not curable. She had surgery on the nerves in her right front leg which has greatly improved her comfort level. She also developed an eye problem that required treatment by an ophthalmologist but it is resolved now with no further treatment needed. Maggie was also diagnosed with PPID, a common condition of middle aged to older horses, which causes lack of hair shedding and tendency to get laminitis if it’s untreated. She’s doing great with treatment.
Maggie takes daily Prascend for her PPID. She cant be out on really lush pasture or have high sugar treats but can have small amounts of low NSC diets (we feed her Triple Crown or Tribute) to hide her medicine in. Shes an easy keeper who doesnt need much feed.
Maggie wears Soft Rider shoes on her front feet and stands well for the farrier to put these on every 6-8 weeks. She does need them to help her stay comfortable.
Maggie is in Townville, SC. She is current on her basic vaccines, dentistry, hoof care, Coggins. If Maggie is adopted by someone local, Crossroads Animal Hospital will provide discounted vet care for her for the rest of her life.
