crippled colt saved by corolla wild horse fund
The Corolla Wild Horse Fund has done an amazing job of managing the last free roaming herd of Spanish Mustangs on the eastern seaboard. The story of Vivo, reported in the Brindley Beach Blog, is typical of the efforts the organization uses to preserve the herd.
“When Vivo was born, folks from the Corolla Wild Horse Fund knew something was wrong with the colt. Suffering from a genetic condition that prevented him from walking properly, it was clear that he would quickly wear down his hooves, leaving him crippled.
To save the colt, Vivo and his mother, Mimosa, were removed from the herd and taken to a rehab center.”
