Krissy - 10-year-old Belgian Mare

Krissy came to Cornell after developing severe shipping fever pneumonia while traveling to compete at the Calgary Stampede. After several weeks in the Cornell Intensive Care Unit, Krissy underwent surgery to remove infected tissue from her lungs that included the removal of part of her rib. She recovered well from surgery and her illness and was able to resume her role as a member of a successful 6-horse hitch on her farm in Northern New York.
