Platinum Performance Horse Welfare Awards

Nickname: Rascally
Birth Year: 2017. Gender: Mare. Breed: Mustang.
Affiliated with All About Equine Animal Rescue .

Regardless of the health challenges, this filly is a warrior with an incredible soul. During her initial fight for life, she won the hearts of our rescue community that helped support the costs of her care. In spite of it all, she is a happy and otherwise healthy young gal with plenty of spirit. She is naughty and sweet, entertaining and sassy which is how she acquired her name. She is growing into a beautiful active young mare and we would like to see her "tummy" issue resolve so she can move on to her forever home. If Platinum Performance products can provide the health boost she needs, it will give her a chance to live happily ever after.

Relationship of Nominator to Nominee
Rascal was born on April 5, 2017 at a mustang sanctuary, and she was rejected by mom at birth. They did not have the resources to care for the foal and contacted All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) to help. Wendy, the executive director agreed to take the foal and immediately prepared for transport. Upon meeting, Rascal was unable to stand up on her own, so was taken directly to Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center. She was diagnosed with a severe selenium deficiency and white muscle disease. She was hospitalized in intensive care for 13 days, then transferred to AAE for another 13 days of round the clock care. On day 26, she stood on her own. While hospitalized, she developed an umbilical infection causing a hernia to grow and later an intestinal bacteria. Once healthy, her umbilical hernia was repaired. About a month later, she developed diarrhea, which became a chronic issue despite a plethora of diagnostics, treatments and supplements. -- Elaine R. Fulton
