Gemma came into our rescue program on November 28, 2016. Gemma came from the Logan County Sheriff's Office as a cruelty case along with 4 other horses. Sadly, when we arrived on the scene one horse was down, emaciated and had been struggling for quite some time. Nicholas/Nigel only weighed 528 pounds, which was half of his body weight. He was extremely neglected and went without far to long. We was able to move that horse off the property, but sadly lost him early the next morning. We are thankful that the others were removed before they suffered any long term affects and lost as much weight as the beautiful boy, Nicholas/Nigel that we lost. Gemma is a Beautiful, Black, Quarter Horse, Mare. Gemma is estimated to be 7 years of age. Gemma is a super sweet girl and loves attention. Gemma loads in a trailer and stands for the farrier. We hope to bring you additional information about this sweet girl soon, as we prepare Gemma for adoption. Please consider making a donation towards Gemma's care.
