Special Criteria What does this mean?

Pepper came to us from another rescue because we were able to provide the special care she needs. She is an adorable little Shetland Pony type mare who was born in approximately 2000. She, like her pasture mate Sally, has chronic laminitis, which is a condition which affects a lot of ponies and she came to us with her feet in terrible shape. She has made a lot of progress through the efforts of our knowledgeable staff, but will always need a specific diet and other special care to maintain her quality of life. She is a sweetheart, who really loves to be groomed and would make a great companion for someone who is dedicated to her special needs.
