Sweet Pea was born sometime around 1991 and was brought to Ryerss Farm in April 2010, pregnant and desperately in need of help. She is a Thoroughbred former race horse standing 15.2 hands high. She came to us through the Animal Rescue League of Berks County who removed her from “terribly neglectful” conditions. Sweet Pea was extremely undernourished. It was feared that she might have a difficult birth, but she surprised everyone and delivered a healthy foal. Plentiful food and loving care at Ryerss Farm enabled Sweet Pea to return to good health and care for her foal during its first year. Eventually the colt was adopted and Sweet Pea became one of our Ryerss residents. She is now happy, healthy and content.
