Heroine is the one who had more difficulties than the others, both in terms of integration into the group and especiallyfor the physical issues shehadat the time of the confiscation of the NAS.She was very thin, had a strong cough and severe dermatitis that had caused her to lose hair at the top of the tail. Withina few days from the confiscation, she developed an abscess in her rear foot, which was gradually treated along with the cough and dermatitis. In short, sheis a reborn mare and has also acquired greater sociability with people.
Heroine is one of the four mares saved at the time of deathfrom slaughter in September 2020. Comingfrom 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 get the horses into custody, saving them from slaughter.
