Divine Will Soon Be Home

Divine's poor body condition upon arrival

Divine came to Easy R Equine Rescue in October 2018.  Her owner had fallen on some unforeseen and difficult financial circumstances; and unfortunately, wasn't able to keep up with adequate feed and care. Divine was very thin and being chased off any available hay by the other horses where she was being kept.  After seeing photos of Divine, we agreed to assist in her care, but eventually the owner requested we take custody of her.  Determining that her situation was not going to improve any time soon, we chose to take her into the Easy R program.

She is a 20 year old Off The Track Thoroughbred, and was being ridden in playdays by the owner's children prior to her decline into poor physical condition. Her demeanor was gentle and she was well-behaved.  Fortunately, a supporter of Easy R immediately expressed interest in Divine and volunteered to foster her and start her road to recovery.  The foster parent is a small animal veterinarian at a clinic which also has a large animal veterinarian on staff.  Divine received all the medical care she needed, including a Caslicks procedure to prevent recurring uterine infections. 

Divine steadily gained weight and strength.  The foster parent's college-aged daughter spent several months with her, riding canyon trails and even competing in a few local beginner level hunter/jumper shows.  At an adoption event in May of this year, Divine caught the attention of a young couple with a 9 year old daughter.  And, as is often the case, it was love at first sight.  The parents wanted to try out the situation by boarding Divine at a local riding facility and having their daughter take riding lessons to determine if it was a "good fit".  Well, it's been a great fit.  After the fence is completed at their country home, Divine will become a permanent member of their family, making a little 9 year old girl very happy.   We love happy endings.

We absolutely could not do what we do for horses like Divine without our supporters, donors, volunteers, and foster families.  Thank you so much for being part of our team!  Happy holidays to each of you!
