May you rest in peace beautiful Via. Dr David Rustebakke took a couple x rays of Via's knee on Friday, it showed severe arthritis. Her knee had been damaged for quite some time.
Iberian Horse Rescue made the decision it was time for her to be pain free.
Via seen love, compassion and greener pastures.
This is the ugly side of rescue...
for us to do what the owners should have taken the responsibility of doing in the first place. 
Via, saved from slaughter May 2016
Approximately 15 year old Azteca, or part Andalusian, broodmare.
