Gitana was rescued from a local farmer in a skeletal state. She was so weak she collapsed twice on the journey to the rescue centre. She sustained irreparable damage to her back and leg tendons due to being over-served by stallions. She also suffered from narcolepsy due to stress which has fortunately diminished over time. Gitana is 29- 30ish years old and she has been at the Rehab Centre for 6 years with no hope of re-homing because of her age and health. Gitana continues to have a good quality of life, is very contented and has not had an “attack” for a long time now.
Update November 2017: Gitana has been instrumental in the rehabilitation of Amada giving her guidance and leadership, continuing to enjoy her life and well earned retirement.
In the first picture (in the middle) she is enjoying her new life.
The picture below was taken when she arrived:
