Elfie is a 12 hand, approximately 17 year old pony. Elfie was the first recipient of our “Mercy Trimmings” program in which Faith N Friends helped her recover from severe founder and immensely long hooves in 2014. Unfortunately, two years after Faith N Friends had gotten Elfie healthy her new owner had let her health deteriorate into a similar state again. Elfie’s hooves are now in good shape, her weight is good, coat is healthy, and she is able to walk so much better. A lot of TLC has been given to this little girl to get her back up to par. She is great in herds and is currently a 12 hand giant in a field of mini horses! Elfie will need a patient, gentle home as the neglect she has received at the hands of humans has made her weary of people. With patience she can be a loving girl who loves to be groomed. Elfie has been in the possession of Faith N Friends since 2016 and she was surrendered to Faith N Friends while pregnant and severely underweight. She also had a poor coat, upper respiratory infection, lice, and hooves at least 1.5 feet LONG! She is permanently crippled on her hind legs from foundering due to years of lack of care. Upon settling in, Elfie’s hooves were trimmed several times, she was given 2x lice treatment, was started on treatment for her respiratory infection, was started on a feeding schedule to gain weight, and had a sarcoid removed from her left eye. Due to her crippled back legs, Elfie will only be able to be a pasture companion and loving pet. In 2017, Elfie got to go to the trainers to work on her ground manners.
