Callie came to H.O.P.E. through our partnership with Berkeley County Animal Control, and we’re incredibly thankful for that team and all the amazing work they do. An eye injury that went untreated for three months resulted in the loss of sight in her left eye, but that hasn't affected her spirits. The injured eye was eventually removed. She was pregnant when she arrived, and gave birth to a healthy foal on May 5th, 2020.
A trainer worked with her for several months under saddle, and she progressed very well despite not appearing to have been ridden before. In spring of 2021, we discovered that two of her molars were rotten and needed to be removed. She saw a veterinary dentist to conduct the procedure. She has since had to return to the specialist due to an antibiotic-resistant infection and regenerative bone growth in her sinus cavity, a complication of her dental surgery.
If you would like to support Callie during her recovery, please consider donating to Honey's Fund, a fund devoted exclusively to horses with extraordinary medical needs.
