Ellie is a 25 year old Shire draft mare who stands 17.3 hands and weighs approximately 1,700 lbs. She has been a broodmare, and was rescued from a kill pen in poor shape. She was given love, care and companionship, but never bonded with any of her herd-mates. We brought her in to be a companion for Siegfried, after he had lost his beloved mare.
Ellie is a sweet soul, and quickly formed an attachment to Siegfried! She does have some dental issues that come with age, and requires soaked meals. She has issues with her legs, and will stomp and bite them, so the feathers have been cut back in attempts to better manage them.
She also has a mass inside her left shoulder.
Since coming here, her legs have been washed, and she is getting used to them being treated and handled.
