Texas A & M to the rescue and local vet with quick response, Dr. Hervey at Dime Box veterinary hospital sent Minnie (Chip Off The Old Sox), an APHA mare, to A & M Large Animal hospital late Sunday evening for surgery, to save not only her leg but her life! Minnie was caught in a barbed wire fence. Minnie is a retired Champion Western Pleasure retired show horse, but for the last 5 years has been a lesson horse to many children here in Lexington. Minnie is owned by Mary and JT Fox. Minnie is still at A & M after intensive hours of surgery, pending release from A & M hospital in several weeks.
