Thoroughbred Placement Resources, Inc.
Two years ago Birdie suffered from an extremely serious bruised hoof that turned into an abscess. He sloughed off his entire sole and regrew a new one. It was horrible and painful for him and we thougth we would lose him many times but due to diligent care, and a fantastic farrier, he made it through. However, this hoof still gives him trouble. We feel that Platinum Performance products to help his feet could go a long way to helping him with his compromised feet to give him a long and happy life.
Relationship of Nominator to Nominee
Sand Save or Birdie as we call him is now a 21 year old pensioner here. He was taken in by Thoroughbred Placement Resources, Inc. when he was seven years old. He was severely, emotionally and physically abused. We made efforts to rehabilitate him into a riding horse but although he is safe to sit on and walk around, he is not able to do more than that due to the defensiveness that developed from being abused. On the ground he is a funny, friendly, sweet horse. Everyone who visits the farm and gets to know him adores him. -- Kimberly Clark
