“Welcome dwelling Dixie!

We first met 28-year-old Dixie final September, after outreach from our MSPCA Law Enforcement group introduced her to Nevins Farm. Dixie was very underweight as a result of she was not being fed appropriately for a senior horse. Dixie’s tooth had been worn down and so clean that she couldn’t grind hay or feed to get vitamin from it.

We shortly began her on a re-feeding plan that included soaked alfalfa cubes and a whole feed designed to assist her acquire weight safely, and she or he started to flourish. Despite all that she had been by, Dixie’s candy persona gained the hearts of everybody she met – however would that be sufficient to safe her an adoptive dwelling for her golden years?

The reply was a convincing sure! When Jessica met Dixie, it was clearly a match. When we requested what drew her to decide on a senior horse like Dixie, Jessica shared, “I believe that everyone needs and is deserving of love. Older animals, just like older people, have a lifetime of stories and experiences to share (if we welcome them to, and if we are willing to “listen”).

I imagine that even when the final “chapter” is brief, it’s value studying and experiencing…every day is what’s necessary – the vacation spot is much less necessary than the journey. My motto for the older animals I undertake is, ‘One step at a time, Together every step of the way.’ I imagine in growing old with dignity and love. This is what I provide to my animals, large and small.

So I select love. I select to like outdated animals. And boy do they love me again (in spades). What a present they offer me.”
Huge due to Jessica for the love and care you might have showered on Dixie prior to now month. She is clearly thriving (try the final couple of photographs to see Dixie when she first arrived at Nevins), and her story continues below the watchful eye and tender care of Jessica.

Here’s wishing you each many extra chapters within the story of Dixie and Jessica!” -MSPCA-Angell.
