While still recovering from a very serious white line infection in her rear hoof, Fiona managed to pull off the delivery without a hitch and delivered the cutest filly we have seen since we rescued Mini Mia last year.
We had first met Fiona when she was sold through the Ontario Livestock auction last year. At the time, seeing the condition and lameness that was already apparent then, we asked the new owner if he would sell her to us. He refused. So, we gave him our phone number and asked him to call if he changed his mind.
Then last month, there she was again, this time outside of Mike's Auction in excruciating pain from a now, raging infection in her hoof. She was turned away by the auction staff as a result and we didn't waste a second loading her onto our friends trailer and then straight to the Vet.
Fiona is showing amazing progress in her recovery and it is a good thing. Looks like she will be plenty busy with her new filly. We are looking forward to seeing both of them frolicking in the pasture in the coming months.
Welcome to the world little filly!
Once again, a big thank you to Ingrid for providing a wonderful home and care for not one, but now TWO precious ponies.
