After 18 years of back-breaking toil I have finally come out of slavery to freedom and have reached a safe haven, just before Passover. The SPCA team accepted me to the Horses' Guest House, immediately began to treat me and gave me the name Shula
Shula, a lovely eighteen-year-old mare, was found wandering on the streets and brought to the Society in a state of total exhaustion.
A veterinary examination revealed that Shula was in very bad physical condition: she was suffering from malnutrition and had a neglected sore eye that had become severely infected.
She underwent surgery to remove the eye and is now on an intense course of antibiotics and analgesics. She is given special food; a nourishing mixture specifically for horses that will bring her up to her correct weight within a few months.
After a long process of rehabilitation in the Society’s stables, we found a good loving home for shula.
