Platinum Performance Horse Welfare Awards

Nickname: Bea
Birth Year: 2003. Gender: Mare. Breed: Thoroughbred.
Affiliated with Days End Farm Horse Rescue .

Since her arrival, Beatrice has had consistently loose manure. The equine health manager has tried everything from Probios to Daily Gold to Bio Sponge with little to no success. She would like to try Equine Wellness and Performance Formula + Digestive Care to see whether this will help her to thrive. Other products like Platinum Gastric Support or the probiotic Platinum Balance could also be a solution. In evaluating Beatrice for potential adoption, we have found inconsistencies in her training and are now wondering if that is linked to the inconsistencies in her health. She just isn’t always feeling well, which is affecting her training. She is a sweet horse whose behavior is compromised by her health issues. Our hope is to resolve her issues so that she can progress through training and find another adoptive home through our program.

Relationship of Nominator to Nominee
Beatrice came to DEFHR on 3/6/18. She had been re-seized by the Caroline County Humane Society after finding that her adoptive home of 2-3 years was neglecting her; her body condition score was 3. They took her back per their adoption policies and asked DEFHR to assist with rehabilitating and rehoming her. -- Susan S Rosenberg
