Athena is a sweet, quiet little filly. She has good ground manners and stands well for the farrier and the vet. She would make an excellent pasture mate. As she gets older and with training, she could be rideable.
49 horses were seized in Kershaw County by authorities for neglect. Athena was one of a group of 5 that came to H.O.P.E. in March. While not malnourished, Athena and her pasture mates required routine vaccinations, deworming, and farrier care. They all desperately needed their hooves trimmed, and some received treatment for lice.
