When she joined us: Chiquita is coming on 2 yr filly. She is one of the sweetest, mellowest babies ever! Unfortunately like so many animals, she was under the control of meth addicts. Her mother was severely underweight but gave all she had to her baby. After two months of constant food, clean water and healthy supplements we felt it was time to wean Chiquita. She was gaining weight rapidly while the mother was still struggling. The separation went surprisingly well, and mama started putting on weight and getting her enthusiasm for life back. Chiquita is going to be a big girl, she has stunning markings.
Buckskin all over, with beautiful white patterns on her back. You can’t see the markings under all that fur yet, but she will be a stunning mare. Her mama is an Appaloosa. Chiquita was born with “parrot mouth”, which is generally a hereditary condition which the mother does not have. She was bred accidentally when she broke out of her pen in search of food and went to a neighbors house. We are in the process of collecting funds and preparing for Chiquita to have oral surgery to improve the condition. We have high hopes for this little girl, and we will do everything we can to give her a healthy future, she deserves it.
