Max came into our rescue program on December 02, 2013. Maximus came from The Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division as a cruelty case. Maximus is a Beautiful, Sorrel/White, Paint, Pony, Gelding. Maximus is estimated to be 18 years of age. Maximus was in horrible condition when he arrived at the Shelter with an extremely large open wound on his neck with severe necrosois and extreme maggot infestation The large wound on his neck went through to both sides, allowing visibility through the middle of his neck. He had extensive muscle damage. We are not sure how long he had this wound or what the cause of it was. Through everything Maximus maintained a wonderful disposition and personality, leaving everyone wanting to fight for his life. Maximus received daily treatment from our wonderful veterinarian since August. He has come a long way, with only a minor area left on his neck for treatment. Maximus is super sweet and he loves attention. He still has a long road of recovery ahead of him. We will update as he progresses. Please consider making a donation towards Maximus' rehabilitation.
Update July 2014 Maximus is now seeking his forever, loving home. He deserves the best home possible, after all he has been through. The pictures above show the healing process of Max's neck injury from both sides. He has made huge improvements and looks great. The healing process took a very long time, but with our wonderful Veterinarian Dr. Kin caring for him, he made a full recovery. He will always have a dip in his neck, but it doesn't bother him. This sweet boy is broke to ride and will make some lucky child an awesome pony. Max stands about 12 hands tall. He neck reins and responds extremely well to all cues. Max stands for the farrier, easy to catch, and loads in a trailer. I can't say enough about this sweet boy! Max has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, and hoof maintenance. If you are interested in giving this sweet boy the forever, loving home he deserves, please call/email to schedule an appointment to come visit Maximus.
Maximus has been adopted to a wonderful family in Prague, Oklahoma. Maximus will be joining several other former rescued horses in his forever, loving home. He will be spoiled rotten by several precious little kids. We are so thrilled that this sweet boy found the forever, loving family he deserves where he will receive an unlimited amount of love and attention.
