Re: “Unhealthy Horses

My name is Krista Wise and I am a student worker at the UA Equine Center and I have been for the last 2 years. I am very upset with all the facts being manipulated so that the UA Equine Center looks like a horrible facility. I for one will not stand by with out showing my thoughts on the issue. I have worked side by side with the manger and assistant manager for 2 years and they show nothing by love and compassion to the horses. They work day and night to make sure that these horses get the best care. And they do. We have healthy happy animals at the UA Equine Center. I say animals, because we not only have horses but 2 cats and a goat too. These two ladies have always had the animals best interest in mind when it comes to taking care of the all the animals we have here.
As for the remarks about Ellie I am appalled by the allegations made by the anonymous student. She was not "happy as can be", anyone who worked at the Equine Center even for a short time knew that she had chronic laminitis/founder and she was in a lot of pain. I would help Ellie back to her stall at the end of the day, just so she wouldn't have to put as much weight on her front feet. Ellie had more than adequate bedding and her stall was cleaned out at least 3 times a day if not more. Laura made sure she always had a clean stall to go into at night. Ellie was a great horse and she lived her life to the fullest.
As for Domino, all the things that Glore says happened to him after his mother passed away was not the staff's fault. She has not right to disrespect them and to point the finger at them. They did the best they could to treat Domino's condition. Yes it is true that the UA Equine Center is struggling with their budget but that doesn't mean they cut corners and skimp on medications and such. I am very ashamed that a women like herself who is a leader at her own facility can have so much disrespect for fellow horse owners. And as for Domino's picture that she has of him, he is SKIN AND BONES! Does no one see that, he does not look healthy, as Glore says. I myself would not adopt a horse that is as sickly looking as he is. If you come to the UA Equine Center you will see healthy horses, that have beautiful shiny coats and meat on their bones. I personally feed these horse and know from actual experience that they get adequate care and nutrition. The UA Equine Center is a great facility and one that I would trust with my horses if I had any of my own.
As for Glore and Vanderpool you should both be ashamed of giving people such false information.
