Camilla was a beautiful 20 year old Paso Fino mare. She was donated to BEHS by a children’s ranch. She had been given to them, but she was too hot for the children to handle. When she arrived at BEHS, she was severely foundered and suffered from undiagnosed pain in her hind legs. She was also very scared of people and she often acted out violently when she felt threatened. Although she was scared of adults, she loved little girls and would hang over the fence, begging for attention, whenever one was around. Her foster home patiently worked with her, and over time her feet began to heal and her attitude began to change. She lost her wariness and began to trust people. She even learned to like petting and scratching. We lost Camilla on February 25 - the vet was unsure whether she had a severe colic or a tumor wrapped around her intestine. Camilla’s foster home will miss her, but we are so happy that Camilla had a few great months and learned to trust people again before she left us.
