For those that don't remember, Hope is the little filly of Mona - a mare that the Rescue helped me with. Hope had to be purchased to get her and her mom away from the owner - and mom had to be immediately taken to the U of I where her feet were in such horrid shape (abscessed, coronet bone deterioated,ringer bone fused) that she had to be put down. Hope is still extremely small and I won't know if she has dwarf characteristics that winter woolies are hiding until she sheds out in spring but for now, the U of I, our vet and farrier have all given her a clean bill - she is just very very small! And spoiled!! One picture is of her and her "foster" mom, a mare that would not let her nurse, but did act as her "mom" in every other way; the b/w colt is about 2 months older than her. I have one other picture of her that is recent - Mike actually let her come in the house to visit some friends of ours and their three year old son - but I don't have that on the web page yet and couldn't load it. And, she is growing finally - two inches since we got her in October - loves her Equine Jr!!
