Lilly Mae is a work in progress. She will remain with us until we get her laminitis under control. This will take time and she will then need careful management for the rest of her life, to keep her sound and healthy.
By sponsoring Lilly Mae, you help us fund her rehabilitation – but importantly – you also allow us to be in a position to help other ponies like her when the need arises.
The story so far…
Lilly Mae has a similar story to Moyrus. She was bought for children, who eventually outgrew her and lost interest. She was loved – and that was part of the reason that there had been no decision to part with her, as finding a suitable new home can be difficult.
We were contacted in November 2020 by a concerned neighbour, desperately hoping that we could help find a home for this wee Shetland cutie, who needed a friend (or two).
After discussions with the owner, it was decided that she should be signed over to the charity for a fee. Lilly Mae was unfortunately suffering from laminitis – a very painful condition of the hooves – and her teeth required attention too. She also needed a passport and vaccinations, all of which are costly for our charity. However, Lilly Mae is thankfully on the road to recovery and we are happy that we could secure the future for this once lonely little pony.
