Catherine’s story is one of the most painful for the CYD team. This little mare bit like a lion when she came to the shelter. Her face clearly showed the aftermath of abuse, but what really bothered us was the aftermath of the abuse of her soul. And indeed, this was something we could never cure entirely. She did not like humans, did not trust them and, despite the efforts of Concordia to help her, each day she displayed less interest in life until eventually she died. Rest in peace.
