Miss Moon, a 3-month-old Quarterhorse, will have part of her right front leg amputated on Oct. 5 because of Osteitis of the metacarpophalangeal, meaning she has infection and inflammation of the bone from the ankle down.

See Sunday's Camp Verde Bugle and Verde Independent newspapers to read about Miss Moon, a 3-month-old Quarterhorse who on Friday will have part of her right front leg amputated, then fit with a temporary leg.

Rimrock resident Katie Longfellow has been Miss Moon's owner since late-August. Longfellow, vet tech and office manager at Camp Verde’s Central Arizona Equine, has cared for the filly, who has Ostetis since she was barely a week old.

Once the stump has healed, Miss Moon will be fit with a permanent prosthetic.
