My name is Sweet Rita. I am a Quarter Horse mare and a direct descendent of the famous horse, Man-O-War, the great Triple Crown winner. I had an injury that was not properly cared for which left me with damages for the rest of my life. My owner sent me off to a broker/slaughter. Diane brought me to the Rescue, and the veterinarian came to take care of me. I had an extreme case of blood flow restriction in my ankle which caused an edema with pain and swelling. My leg must be maintained on a regular basis and kept free from moisture and mud.
