The Lovely Cupid
This beautiful 20 year old horse named Cupid was dropped off at the kill pen by her owner, hardly able to walk from founder (also known as laminitis – an inflammation of the hoof that causes extreme pain). The ever wonderful Miss Jo's Rescue Ranch was able to save Cupid and bring her to their ranch for a rehabilitation. Founder is treatable but requires commitment and funding to cover ongoing vet & farrier visits, cold salt therapy and special horse boots.
We were happy to help with this beautiful girl! We made a donation from FHF customers – yes, YOUR purchases helped get Cupid on a road to recovery!
Best Days Are Ahead
The team at Miss Jo’s was able to receive a prescription for inflammation and start Cupid on that right away. Then Cupid was treated at Outlaw Veterinarian Clinic where she received custom built hospital plates on her hooves that needed to be unscrewed every three days to clean and apply meds. The vet and care team continued the treatment for weeks until the abscesses and infection were gone and Cupid’s hooves grew new soles. Watch the video below to see Cupid’s recovery journey and what a difference the medical care has already made!
