is of Ilene, a 3 year old thoroughbred Filly from Calder Racetrack,
upon her arrival on August 1, with 2 factures of her LF sesamoid
bone. A short time later she was out of her brace (AND OFF THE
BUTE) and while still confined to a stall and a small outdoor
"stall", happy, and healing (slowly) and may someday
be able to carry the weight of a foal.
a custom ramp for her (as our trailer is a step-up) and we purchased
a leg brace from Kimzey Metal Works in California.
of Last Chance
Ranch generously donated calm coat, calm eyes, and several
packages of her miracle herbal Poultice for llene. Jennifer's
products are sold at most of the tack stores in Florida and Dover
catalog. They really work!!
During her 3 months of confinement in a stall, Ilene had MANY visitors. But this day, she had a special visitor. Most horses (even older more confident ones!) were terrified of Ron's motorized wheelchair. But Ilene seemed to know that Ron was recovering from his injuries, and they had something in common. Ilene was not afraid of the chair, in fact, she put her head in Ron's lap to be petted by him.
