Special Needs

MARSHMALLOW, SPONSORED BY CHRISTINE JOHNSON

is a 26 year old Molly mule surrendered to our Refuge for some behavioral issues. Marshmallow has a genetic deformity and lacks third eyelids, so she has to wear a flymask at all times. She is also a very hard keeper and needs lots and lots of calories!

 

PHILIP, SPONSORED BY MICHELE MASSA

is a 25 year old horse rescued from a hoarding situation in 2018 involving hundreds of animals, many of which were deceased on the property. Philip himself was almost starved to death and has since been rehabilitated, but he has hind end lameness from an old fracture, so he will stay at LMMR where we know he can be safe and happy for the rest of his days. 

 

 

HANK, SPONSORED BY AMY KOESTER

is a 27 year old John who was surrendered by his owner in Smiley, Texas. Very sadly, Hank was diagnosed with terminal cancer shortly after coming to LMMR, so he will live here for the rest of his life getting the care he needs.

 

HENRY, SPONSORED BY MARLA WELCH

One of these is not like the others! Henry is a senior horse who was surrendered to PVDR along with 35 donkeys. Henry was transferred to LMMR and diagnosed with bilateral fibrotic myopathy, which prevents him from being able to move faster than a walk. Although he is disabled, his condition is not a painful one. Henry just needs a soft place to live where he will not have to compete for food or risk further injury.

 

NORA, SPONSORED BY KARI RILEY AND PETRA GOODMAN

is a 17 year old mule rescued from a hoarding situation in 2018 involving hundreds of animals, many of which were deceased on the property. Nora herself was almost starved to death and has since been rehabilitated, but the scars on her legs and broken withers tell us she has not had an easy life, so she will stay at LMMR where we know she can be safe and happy for the rest of her days.

 

MARLA, SPONSORED BY BETH DAVIS

is an 18 year old Molly rescued in Chapel Hill, Tennessee. Marla loves her special needs friends and wants absolutely nothing to do with us. That's okay!

 

HOPE, SPONSORED BY JAMES ERVIN

is a 26 year old Molly transferred to us by a rescue in Dansville, Michigan. Hope does not like people at all, so we let her keep her distance and enjoy living with her old lady friends.

 

AMELIA, SPONSORED BY ALEXANDRIA WEBB

is a 20 year old mule who was rescued from Hallsburg, Texas in 2019. She has a hard time making friends, so she lives with our special needs group who are mostly elderly and friendlier towards her.

 

LADY, SPONSORED BY COURTNEY TIMP

is a 21 year old Molly mule who was surrendered in Texas along with 2 other mules after the passing of her very caring owner. Lady had not been owned for very long, and still needs to gain a lot of weight back. She is doing very well in our refeeding program and could use a monthly sponsor to help with those costs. 

 

JUDY, SPONSORED BY KATY MASKIEWICZ

is a 20 year old Molly mule who was surrendered in Texas along with 2 other mules after the passing of her very caring owner. Judy is a very personable girl who will be evaluated for light riding this summer.
