Rosita:  Rehab and Recovery Update April 7, 2014

Rosita leaving AZ Eq 3-24-14 (2)


Rosita has sailed through her complex surgery at Arizona Equine in Phoenix to straighten her injured front legs. Ligaments were cut on both sides, with the right leg requiring a specialized splint due to the severity of the contraction and the traumatic injuries sustained, ridden too hard and too young.

Now recovering well, Rosie was feeling rambunctious enough to break the splint applied right after surgery from her newly found activity level! Keeping the splint on is key to her proper healing so she requires close supervision.
A heartfelt Thank You to everyone who contributed to her surgical fund to make this possible.
