Crystal is a Paso Fino mare rescued in November 2021 from the Asheboro NC Kill Pen. Crystal is maybe 20 years old and has clearly had a rough life. Her initial vet visit revealed that she has melanoma, a heart murmur, and degenerative suspensory ligament disease. She requires daily anti-inflammatories to help with pain management. Crystal wants to be friendly but has a hard time trusting. Her current body score is a 2. She needs to gain100-150 pounds to reach a healthy weight. After her 30 day quarantine, Crystal will be placed in the retirement field where she can live out her days in peace.
Spartan joined Campfire Critters in February 2022. He was surrendered by his previous family after he tested positive for HERDA, a severe skin condition that causes the skin on his back to easily tear. Spartan is a quarter pony standing at just 14 hands tall and is approximately three years old. He is very sweet but a little shy and timid. While he cannot be ridden, we will work with Spartan on ground manners and building trust/confidence around people.
