At the end of September of 2008, Emma’s owner was unable to care for her medical needs and sold her to a concerned friend that donated her to Bluebonnet. The day after Emma’s late night arrival at the vet, it was determined that she needed a lot of care. She had a uterine infection, an infected tooth, anemia, a body score of 1 and had suffered a broken pelvis in her recent past that had been healing on its own. At her own expense, the vet offered to keep Emma at her place until she was stable. Just over a month later, Emma was gaining weight and feeling good. The heavy course of antibiotics, food and lots of TLC seemed to be working. Emma was practically on her way to a new foster home to finish her rehabilitation and wait for her forever home with some lucky adopter. She was a sweet, nice, easy going mare.

The day before Emma was to leave the vet’s care and go on to her new foster home, she re-fractured her pelvis and had to be humanely euthanized. Though Emma never made it to our “Available” (for adoption) page, she knew we were pulling for her. Thanks for trying so hard Emma! You had a kind, strong spirit. May it rest in peace.
