This is Memory, a pony that is helping researchers understand wound healing and find treatments for osteoarthritis.  She is in a study that uses stem cells to promote wound healing teaching veterinarians how to use donor cells to help their horse patients.   Memory also worked on a study to develop novel treatments for septic osteoarthritis, a big concern for many horses and their owners.  Peppermint treats and hugs by her veterinarian are part of Memory's daily routine.
