Lady

Lady came to Munchkins after being rescued from a neglectful and abusive home. She had been beaten and pinned down often in order for her feet to be trimmed. Because of this, Lady was extremely nervous of people when she first arrived and it took weeks to even get near her. She also arrived in foal and gave birth to Toby in the field among the herd. Lady has come a long way since she came to Munchkins and she is learning to trust humans more and more each day.
