Hi my name is Animal. I am an Appaloosa. Everyone at the Serenity Ranch thinks I look like a muppet and that is why my name is Animal. I think I am in my late 20’s. I was rescued by The Serenity Ranch about 2 years ago. It was not that my previous owners didn’t love me but they couldn’t take care of me any more. I was in a very small pen in an arena so I had not seen the sun in many years.
I was very thin when I came to my new home. Here they give me 12 cups of soaked grain 3 times a day. My teeth are very worn so I am not able to chew hay like all the other horses. They give me alfalfa, that I am able to chew a little. I love to be groomed and sometimes go for walks but my home is in a barn. I have a large stall and an outdoor run. I see lots of people everyday and get lots of attention and treats.
My vet thinks I have the start of liver failure but I am happy and healthy right now. I love living at the Serenity Ranch, all the people here are kind and thoughtful.
