WOW! Another update on Guinness!






Last month, I wrote an update on Guinness, the huge Irish Draught horse who had horrible tumors on his mouth and chest.

Well, I just received several new photos of Guinness in his new home!  I thought I would share since so many of you were so concerned and helped get him to where he is today – much happier!

Thank you, Dr. Myhre, for fixing him!

Guinness had huge, painful tumors on his chin and chest.

GUINNESS IN HIS NEW HOME!

Below is a note I received from Guinness’ new caretaker, Jenah.

This is the day Guinness came home and became a part of our family. The black Shire is his sister Lilly. She is 9 The Perceron is his brother Surprise. He is 34. And the donkys are Lyla and Stanley. Both around 12. 

Guinness was less then impressed to be living with “farm horses” let alone donkeys but he has warmed up to them, especially the donkeys.
 
Please thank your readers for all of your efforts.  I can’t thank you enough for wanting to update his life!

A FUNDRAISER FOR GUINNESS to pay the final fees on his massive surgery bill.

This little boy saw Guinness on Facebook and asked his mom if he could go to meet him so he could put a super hero bandaid on his boo boo to make him feel better. OH MY HEART. This horse has stole the hearts of the young and old alike.

He looks very handsome!

Guinness loves people.

 

THANK YOU, THE HORSE AND MAN GROUP.

From Jenah:

Guinness isn’t out of the woods, but he is very, very happy.  There is a spring in his step and he loves his life.  Thank you, Horse and Man Group, for helping him come this far!

Guinness and Jenah.

HE LOST HIS TAIL while wandering the streets, starving. MEET OUR AUGUST BUCKET FUND HORSE: Pegasus!






No one knows his story.  He was found wandering in the street.  He was skinny, cut up and missing his TAIL.

Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County immediately took him in and called the vet.  Pegasus, who they estimate is 15 years-old and a 3 on the scale, was missing his tail in a very crude injury, had black, greasy oil all over his body and he had cuts, and bruises.  Something traumatic happened to him.

He will need lots of time to recover.  The tail is difficult to heal and regrow because horses move them constantly.  Often, tails become infected because proper scabs cannot form.

Pegasus has been treated and bathed.  He looks better and seems to feel a bit better.

Pegasus lost his tail. We don’t know how or why, he was found wandering on the street.

POOR GUY.  WHAT HAPPENED?  We will probably never know.

Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County is not well funded… and Pegasus’ care will take many vet visits and lots of wrap and ointments (I know, I had to wrap Mama Tess’ feet daily…)

This month, let’s help Illinois Horse Rescue help this poor, lost gelding.  And no – no one has reported him missing… no one yet, is looking for him.

ALL DONATIONS ARE 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE!  THIS RESCUE COULD REALLY USE THE HELP!

All donations are 100% tax deductible.  And, I know they could really, really use the funds.  Honestly, I remember how expensive it was to continually treat and wrap MT’s open wounds.  So, I can absolutely feel for them.

And, this guy is emotionally damaged.  The volunteers will be working with him often to heal his soul – thank horsegods.

ANY AMOUNT is wonderful and thank you in advance!!
