Lys is now a beautiful bay mare, but her condition was worrying at the time of her confiscation, particularlybecause of a severe infection in her leg due to an untreated abscess. It took several weeks for the leg to deflate and the healing process to begin. Fortunately, she has become more and more collaborative, returning the attention and affection she had never been able to enjoy before.
Lys is one of the four mares saved at the time of deathfrom slaughter in September 2020. Coming from France, where they were first used on the racecourse and then used as broodmares for many years, they were transported to Italy with falsified passports. After two changes of ownership they were declaredas slaughter animals at the Italian registry and taken to the slaughterhouse in Correggio (RE). After the confiscation of the NAS we were able to getthe horsesinto custody, saving them from slaughter.
