Memorial for DELTA Rescue Horse Momma

November 20, 2010

Momma was my second horse patient at the D.E.L.T.A. Rescue. I had the opportunity to work with her for many months in effort to improve her chronic discomfort associated with a front limb conformational abnormality.

Momma’s ability to walk and stand in a more natural position bettered with acupuncture treatment, dietary supplements, injectable chondroprotectants, Chinese herbs, farrier work, and Western pain medication. Ultimately, the severity of Momma’s pain became too severe and she was unable to stand. At this point, Momma was humanely euthanized.

Momma will be missed, but the memory of her positive energy will remain with us forever.

I just came across this memorial page. Mama, we called her, Cripple Mama, for we also have a horse named Trouble Mama, was being board, on my family Ranch. Cripple Mama made a friend, while she was cared for, His name is Jack. Both Cripple Mama (arabian) and Jack (saddle bred) were both taken to Horse Rescue of America, in Acton, CA. Both owners of these horse, could no longer, care for them, financially. They wanted both horses to go to a rescue together, where they would live the rest of their lives. I know here, Cripple Mama and Jack were the best of friends. Where Mama went, Jack was always right there with her…I’m sadden, to find out about Mama. Even though she had a problem with her knee, she sure love to run in the pasture, with the other horses…….
How is Jack? The horse that came will Mama to your rescue,

Thank you for your comments. It’s interesting to hear about mom’s previous history before she came to the DELTA Rescue. I only got to know her for a short time of her life, but felt fortunate to have even had that chance.
