Poo was orphaned at only 2 months old, after a wild horse roundup sent her mother to be slaughtered. She had an infected mouth injury when she was rescued, along with a missing tooth and cuts on her face and legs. She was sent to 3 Sisters Equine Refuge because of her medical issues, with the financial help of the Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation.
When Poo first arrived at the rescue, she was still very much a wild horse, and had a little trouble adjusting to life around so many people. Before long, though, she warmed up to her rescuers, and began to enjoy her new life.
“When she first came in, it took three of us to hold her while we doctored her wounds and rinsed out the wound in her mouth,” Davis said. “This tiny little thing was a force to be reckoned with! Now I can do it by myself; she knows we are here to help her! She remained in ICU for a month and then she was strong enough to introduce her slowly to other horses in the herd.”
