Carlton County #1 Gray Mare (Deceased)

(Please note: this mare is now deceased). This 2-3 year old mare came to MHARF in July 2019 from an ongoing Carlton County humane case.  She was obviously in pain at intake and she was taken to Anoka Equine Veterinary Services where she had radiographs taken to check for ring bone.  The radiographs showed very advanced ringbone in 3 of 4 limbs.  Because of the amount of pain she was in and because of the advanced nature of this debilitating, progressive disease, the decision was made after discussion among the MHARF team and the veterinary team that the most humane option for this poor young mare was euthanasia.
