Look Whos A Star

Look Whos A Star is a 2007 chestnut Thoroughbred by Pollard's Vision who was rescued from a kill pen February 20, 2019. She was in very poor condition when she came to Lifeline and had suffered a trauma to the head at the kill pen, which caused a concussion. "Star" was never raced; she was used strictly as a broodmare. She has made a lot of progress toward trusting people and improving her health and condition. Star is a beautiful, sweet mare who would love to be a companion and have someone to love on her. She is currently in foster in Pennsylvania and is available for adoption.
