Perla Storm, Her Last Cognac, and Dancing the Mambo
On February 1, 2014, Deb Adams of Race Horse Reclaim Thoroughbred Rescue (Ocala, Florida) was notified of three mares in emergent need. Deb’s Facebook post that day: “An emergency needing intervention presented itself this morning. I have been contacted regarding a trio (three) of x-racers who desperately need placement. The owner is out of state and the horses are in bad shape as no one has been feeding them!” Deb didn’t waste any time, and by the next day, the three mares were safely in the loving “arms” of Race Horse Reclaim Thoroughbred Rescue. Her post that evening, “The three mares are at RHR tonight, out of the deplorable conditions they were suffering in”, was a welcomed update and the many folks following the story shared a collective “sigh of relief”. But now funds were needed for the emaciated and neglected mares…and Saving Baby Equine Charity was ready and willing to assist.
The mares are;
Perla Storm, a 2005 dark bay mare who had 34 starts for earnings of 26K. Her last race was on 12-16-11 at Charles Town. Her last owner of record was Pedro Oscar Perez.
Her Last Cognac, a 2007 bay mare who had 22 starts for earnings of 30K. Her last race was on 12-15-11 at Penn National. Her last owner of record was Pedro Oscar Perez.
Dancing the Mambo, a 2007 bay mare who had 12 starts for 3K. Her last race was on 12-1-11 at Penn National. Her last owner of record was Pedro Oscar Perez.
All three mares, when rescued, were thin and filthy, with matted manes and tails, and with neglected hooves and poor dentition. In addition, Perla Storm has lymphangitis, Her Last Cognac has a painful hoof abscess, and Dancing the Mambo has advanced rain rot. But the loving care to put them on their road to recovery has begun in earnest…they have been started on a nutritional weight-gain diet, they are receiving meticulous grooming and topical treatments for their skin conditions, and the farrier and equine dentist have begun their work on hooves and teeth!
Race Horse Reclaim Thoroughbred Rescue and Saving Baby Equine Charity would like to thank all who have rallied to help these three deserving mares.
