Allegra, Spanish Barb Mustang at Wind Horse Foundation needs Donations for Pigeon Fever Infections

~

Anne-Marie Pinter and Allegra

Allegra was born a wild mustang of very special lineage. Wind Horse Foundation is Allegra’s permanent home and is under the care of Anne-Marie Pinter. Anne-Marie competed in the Endurance circuit for many years with great success on her gelding Montana. She competed in and finished the Tevis twice, once when Montana was 11 agian when he was 19. She has raised, trained and ridden horses for dressage and trail riding. Wind Horse Foundation is a relatively new non-profit but Anne Marie Pinter has been a horse woman all her life.

Wind Horse Foundation now has 12 Spanish Barb mustangs in their herd; 6 recently came down with pigeon fever. Allegra is the only one who has not improved as a result of her shyness and fear of people. Anne-Marie lost her job during the peak of this illness because she decided to stay home to care for her sick herd. As a result, all the foundation’s and Anne-Marie’s personal resources have used up to pay for veterinary care. Some fans and friends have gotten together to raise funds for the medical costs for Allegra’s and the other 5 mustangs afflicted with pigeon fever.
