is a spunky Mini Horse born on April 12, 2020 missing the last set of bones in her rear hooves that never developed. She and her mom Ruthie came to Guardian Angel Acres when Raina was only 6 days old. Immediately her Veterinarian, Dr. Brittany Beil and I began creating "boots" for her. Her hooves actually turned under and inward. Because of their position the top of her hooves became bruised. The first thing we had to do was raise her feet off the ground so there would be no pressure on the hoof.
Raina's first set of boots consisted of Hot Pink Pool Noodles!!! Since she only weighed about 30 lbs, they were sturdy enough in the beginning!
Raina's reaction was beyond expectations! She didn't miss a beat and literally took off running!
