All About Missy!
Missy has been with us for 25 years. She is a 38 year old Arabian mare. She was rescued from the slaughter truck with Skippy and Charlie. Although, Kenny and Christy did not see any obvious signs of why she was unwanted, after she was purchased and brought home, they found where the side of her mouth had been scarred, but someone using too severe of a bit on her. Although, you would need a light hand to ride Missy, she became a wonderful trail horse as she was unflappable. She was also borrowed by some of the local youth associations for demonstrations about brushing and handling horses as she was so easy going. She suffered a stroke about six months ago, but has recovered nicely. She lost a little hearing and some eyesight, but roams the property visiting the paddocks or resting in her stall. She is after all 114 years old in people years.

Yearly Expenses: $2,170 is the yearly cost for Maggie. This covers twelve months of feed and maintenance fees, six farrier visits, two wormings, a dental visit and a vet check.
