Rescue Group: River Edge Farm Horse Rescue
Pumpernickel (Nickel for short) was surrendered to the rescue by his owner. A few days before he arrived at the rescue, he cut his left hind leg on a barbed wire fence. His owner did not want to surrender him, but she knew it was for the best since she could not afford vet care. The cut in his leg ran deep with bone and tendon exposed. Thankfully, nothing serious was injured and he was able to walk on his leg from the day of his injury. He had numerous vet visits throughout the healing process.
During his first 6 months at the rescue we were diligent about changing his wound dressing several times a week, and his leg slowly healed. Finally this summer he was able to be released into the herd. His previous owner said that she rode him but we have not put a saddle on him, and we cannot verify how well he is broke. He has a gentle temperament and is ready to go to a barbed-wire free home where he can have the attention he deserves.
