Miss Sally (a.k.a. Misily) arrived at Serenity Horse Haven on ???. She was injured during the tornado that went through Emory. Her owner's property was tore up by the tornado and we believe she ran through a fence trying to escape the tornado.

Medical Conditions:
  ♦  Cuts, cornet band injury
  ♦  Pre-existing Bowed tendons (front legs)

Treatment:
  ♦  Simple wound care

Prognosis:
  ♦  We are hopeful that once her wounds heal all that will be left is a scar and slight malformation of her hoof where the cornet band was damaged. Miss Sally is ridable for a small person at a walk and with her legs in boots to support her tendons.

Medical Conditions:
  Sinus Abscess:
  ♦  Abscess was created by the roots of a tooth that was shattered and not dealt with

Treatment:
  ♦  Removal of tooth and drain abscess
  ♦  Flush cavity that was created by abscess weekly until bone re-structures
  ♦  No forage until hole between mouth and sinus is closed
