Rest In Peace, Annie.
Annie is a 16.1hh Belgian-Saddlebred cross, foaled in approximately 1996.
She was a the lead horse in a carriage team that has given countless rides during the holidays at Bradley Fair in Wichita, Kansas.
Unfortunately, Annie's career was cut short when cancer was discovered in her left eye, and it became obvious it would need to be removed.
Once she has learned to use her other senses in response to losing her left eye, we will determine whether we keep her in our sanctuary or adopt her out.
Her owner donated her to Hope In The Valley to find her a good final home.
We weren't sure Annie would be broke for riding...
She is adjusting beautifully to bareback thus far.
Dawn's evening hug.
