Mirage was once a competitive reining horse. one morning, while in serious training, a baby was found by her side. totally unexpected, her owner had no idea she was PREGNANT. Because Mirage was not getting proper nutrition and was working so hard, she had suffered several fractures and ligament tears. Her baby, also now a resident of Gracie’s, was born with nutritional DEFICIENCIES. Mirage’s owner at the time realized they both needed special care and surrendered them both over to me. Mirage is healthy now but could never overcome the injuries she ENDURED. she is now retired at Gracie’s Farm.
