Fame was rescued from a low-end auction in September 2018. He’s significantly lame on his right front leg which has a large scar, edema, scar tissue and some deformity. It appears he was used at high school rodeo events in his past according to paperwork received at auction once he was purchased. He’s a very nice horse who was cast off at an auction attended by kill buyers. He will undergo a thorough veterinary exam including X-rays as it may not be possible to give him a quality of life depending on the extent of internal damage to his front leg and any compensating injury elsewhere.
After a thorough veterinary evaluation including X-rays, it was discovered that Fame had significant injury and damage to his hocks and stifles along with other chronic lameness issues. There were no treatment options to reduce or manage pain levels and he was humanely euthanized.
