Maci came to H.O.P.E. Acres in October, 2017. Former working horses, Maci and her sister Jaime found a new home after their retirement. When their care unfortunately became too much of a financial burden, their owner contacted H.O.P.E., where they would be guaranteed to receive the love and care they need. Maci has EPM, a neurological disease caused by protozoa that infect the central nervous system. Her symptoms are thankfully mild for this disease, which can be quite debilitating, and present as an occasional limp or decreased coordination in her rear legs.
Both mares have very gentle temperaments, and are closely bonded with each other since they have spent their entire lives together. Maci is a little shyer than her sister, but will reward you for your patience. You can tell her apart from Jaime by her darker mane and whiter face.
