In February of last year, an extraordinary rescue took place by the rescue organization 3 Sisters Equine Refuge. Valore, a yearling filly, was saved from a kill sale, but her condition was dire. Alongside another yearling, who was assumed to be her sibling, both were severely malnourished, dehydrated, infested with ticks, and suffering from acute selenium deficiencies. Tragedy struck when the other colt didn’t survive despite intensive care at Bend Equine Hospital, and Valore was given less than a 5% chance of making it. Valore was on the brink of death.
The Miraculous Recovery
Valore’s condition was so critical that she couldn’t stand without assistance. During her stay in intensive care, technicians had to lift her to her feet, and she had to be fed from a dish while receiving intravenous fluids. On top of this, Valore was covered in ticks that required removal. It seemed like the odds were stacked against her, with the third day in ICU being particularly challenging. There was a moment when it appeared Valore might not pull through.
But, against all odds, Valore showed incredible resilience and determination. She defied the grim predictions and made it through her time in intensive care. On the fourth day, Valore finally returned to the refuge, albeit in a frail state. Her survival was nothing short of miraculous.
A New Home for Valore
In October of the same year, Valore found a new home when she was adopted. Her new owner couldn’t help but notice that Valore had the look of a well-bred horse from thoughtful breeding, and it led her to consider a DNA test from Texas A & M. To everyone’s astonishment, the results were nothing short of astounding. Valore’s DNA revealed that she is a combination of Hanoverian, Trakehner, and Holsteiner breeds. This revelation sparked a journey towards registering Valore with the with AWSSR – American Warmblood Society and Sport Horse Registry.
Valore’s journey to recovery and vitality continued, and she needed the right nutritional support. Initially, she was put on Platinum Performance, but its cost led her owner to search for an alternative that could provide Valore with the nutrition needed for her continued growth and development. The search led to the discovery of Omega Complete.
Omega Horseshine Complete is an all-in-one supplement featuring Omega-3-6-9, antioxidants, Diamond V® yeast, and essential vitamins and minerals. These nutrients may support a healthy, shiny coat, strong, solid hooves, a strong immune system, and digestive stability for total health. Just like our original Horseshine, this supplement is for horses in all life stages.
Valore the Warmblood
By the time Valore turned two years old at the end of September, she had transformed remarkably. Her owner proudly shared photos from Valore’s Warmblood inspection, where she scored an impressive 74.35 and qualified for a Warmblood brand. Valore’s appearance and condition were a testament to her remarkable recovery and progress. She had grown to 15.1 hands, and her future looked brighter than ever. Valore even began ground driving, and her owner plans to start backing her after her third birthday.
Valore’s owner expressed her thanks for the Omega Fields’ product that had played a crucial role in Valore’s journey. Omega Complete provided the nutrition needed to help Valore shine, both figuratively and literally. Valore’s remarkable story serves as an inspiring example of the power of resilience and the importance of the mission of animal rescues everywhere.
