Allie came to AAE in June 2020 from a distressed mustang sanctuary situation due to a health crisis. After 20 years of serving mustangs, the sanctuary was unable to adequately meet the needs of the horses. Allie was a bit timid and untrusting; however, with a slow approach she was haltered and loaded easily. Allie has a mass over her left rib cage that is apparently scar tissue from an old recurrent cyst (removed three times). She also has scars on her hind legs from past skin irritation/infection similar to Scratches.
Once haltered, Allie seems to enjoy grooming and accepts fly spray. Her front hooves can be handled and cleaned, gently; however, when attempting to trim the hind hooves, her legs seem tender around the scars and she has kicked. For now, she needs sedation to trim hind hooves. The cyst area occasionally has very slight drainage and the area is sensitive; two vet exams have been inconclusive and it appears to be scar tissue.
As far as we know and can tell, Allie was never started under saddle, and due to her age and lack of confidence, she is not a good candidate as a riding horse. Allie is best suited for a companion home with someone that is easy-going, has low energy and enjoys the trust-building experience with horses and the bond that follows. She is not suitable for a beginner. Allie loaded readily when we picked her up, and we will be revisiting the trailer in time.
Allie is current with dental and hoof care, vaccines, and deworming, and she has a microchip. Her cyst area may need future vet evaluation, but for now, no significant issues have been identified.
