Romania, ten days before Christmas…
A cart stopped in front of our vet hospital, an old cart pulled by an even older horse. A man entered the clinic and asked help for the horse, a mare he said to have recently bought. After making sure that the man’s house was a safe place for her to spend the night, we invited the owner to go back home and promised to pay a visit the day after.
Nine days before Christmas
Part of our team, headed by our vet Roxana, went to check the mare’s living situation and state of health.
As you may easily see from the video we share, the poor horse needed urgent help.
The mare, whom we called Lucia, spent her first Christmas in a safe and warm place, with sufficient food and vet assistance guaranteed. She is approximately 15-20 years and her major problems are dental issues and arthritis, both in close relation with her geriatric condition.
We really do not know how long she will live but we will do our best to offer her some last days, months or hopefully years worth to be lived.
You can also play your part and help us to make this “miracle before Christmas” last as long as possible!
