About Betty

Adoption Fee: $200.00
Age: Adult
Sex: Female

Betty is a 13 year old Standardbred Chestnut mare. She came to us after receiving a call from a Fountain County resident on February 16, 2016 about her being left abandoned by her owner. The true story usually comes out after we start talking to people. Betty was bought from an Amish Auction in October 2015 after being rtired from being a buggy horse. The person who purchased Betty gave her to his daughter's boyfriend after repayment of the purchasing cost. Well the daughter & boyfriend split up, he moved out, and left Betty there with the family. The family had contacted him numerous times to come & pick her up & take her, he refused to pick her up or return phone calls. They tried sending her back to the Amish & they refused her stating as far as they were concernedit was his horse. Betty has been diagnosed with Heaves when we got her & was started on Albuteral Sulfate for oral suspension at the dosage of 10cc twice daily. We are working on getting her on a management program to help her heaves. Heavs is a chronic, non-incectious airway condition for horses that is also called recurrent airway obstruction. This disease occurs in horses more than 6 years old & is the result of an alllergic reaction to inhaled particles. Betty looves attention from people, loads & unloads very well, stands great for a farrier to get her feet trimmed, & takes Albuteral smoothly. Betty doesnt get too excited with new things & situations. She is curious of new things. She adjusts to new herds well. Betty has had a couple set backs but has healed & still looking for a new home.
