The second arrival to Rosemary Farm in 2016, Luna is a 21 year old registered APHA mare with many show points at both the amateur and professional level, many assorted wins, championships and titles…none of which kept her safe from harm when her ‘use’ was up. Luna’s eye was diagnosed with a minor tumor about 18 months ago and was supposed to be fixed but was not. Of that I will say no more. When we saw a photo of her infected and painful eye (or the remains thereof), we immediately made plans, and she was picked up on Easter Sunday.
Three days later, she was on the surgeon’s table with an unknown outcome, but anything was better then living in pain and infection. She was lucky, and the tumor that had grown into her eye did not infect the bone from all indications, and the tumor and eye were both removed. She is in recovery now and we feel her future is bright. She handles like the champion she is, and is sound and even has riding experience in her past, so whether she remains here or finds a forever family, she got the care that she needed. Luna has been re-introduced to saddle this summer and is very easy going, with a lovely western jog, and more whoa then ‘goa’. 🙂 She is a sweet easy girl. Thank you to those who have wished us well and helped us with her initial emergency needs! Sponsors or donors to continue her care are welcome!
Soon after surgery, recovering at Rosemary Farm.
