Rosie has been with HDH since 1999 and is now 21 years old. She was donated by Cheryl Mancini and has been a wonderful therapy horse for the last fifteen years!
She is a Pinto/Arabian and started off life in Tennesse. She was bought as a yearling for $15,000 by a local Arabian farm and then sold to Cheryl as a five year old. Cheryl found she did not have enough time for Rosie so she donated her to HDH.
In the subsequent years Rosie has been through a lot! She developed founder which is the rotation of the coffin bones in the foot which many horses are put down from. She also had a fungus attack her left eye and had a Cornea Transplant which saved her vision.
She might not be useful to most horse owners but Rosie is a true hero here at HDH. She requires special attention to her hooves from a specialist farrier to keep her sound. THANK YOU Amy Chait for donating your time to keep Rosie going! She is loved by many!
