Eleanor is like many horses of the world. When we adopted her at the age of 19, she had sadly found herself through no fault of her own, with a sticker on her butt and available for sale to the highest bidder at an auction.
Working together with the Peeps Foundation in Lexington, KY, they cleaned her up, began treatment of a wound on her face caused by an overgrown nylon halter growing into her skin and recognized an untreated ulcer in her right eye.
Eleanor, despite her sad condition was indeed a beautiful soul and, like so many other horses in this world, found herself being the horse that someone no longer wanted and was crass enough to simply sell her off to the person with the most money despite whatever intentions they may have. We feel blessed to have gotten her.
