Hamilton is from the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros, and came to GSH in November of 2016 during a crisis at ISPMB involving county impoundment and seizure, overcrowding and lack of resources. Erin was thin on intake and in need of a trim for her hooves, but with time and good care should be fine. She is reported to be a yearling and is larger than the other girls that we have aged younger, however we will be unlikely to determine her exact age until her 2 year old temporary teeth fall out and permanent teeth come in. She is less friendly as some of the others and we are allowing her to take her time to get to know us, but is available for adoption to a home capable of working with her.
UPDATE: After a mysterious lameness, we took Erin into the vet for X-rays and found that due to her history of starvation/malnutrition, Erin's bones did not get enough calcium to support her growing body. She has a diagnosis of ringbone with bone chips and will not be rideable in the future. We are hopeful with time that the joints fuse and she will be a suitible pasture pal.
