An UPDATE on our November Bucket Fund horse: CLYDE! HE HAD SHOES ON – THE WALKING An UPDATE on our November Bucket Fund horse: CLYDE! He had shoes – THE WALKING SKELETON HAD SHOES!… Oy.






Oy.

I cannot believe that our starved and neglected November Bucket Fund horse, Clyde, had  shoes.  (You can read Bonnie and Clyde’s story here.)

Sheesh.

They had money for shoes, but not for food.

Such human error.

I am very, very thankful that we are able to help Sound Equine Options to rescue both Bonnie and Clyde.

Both horses were visited by the farrier today.  Clyde had his shoes taken off – phew – and both horses were given a nice trim.

He looks happy!

I’m awaiting pics of Bonnie – coming our way soon!

Skinny Clyde mid trim.  Can you believe he was wearing shoes?  For what purpose?!  They were riding him but not feeding him?  Oy.

Mid trim.

 

Happy Clyde after those shoes were OFF and his feet trimmed!

OUR NOVEMBER BUCKET FUND HORSES: MEET BONNIE AND CLYDE – sweet, well-trained, walking skeletons






I always wonder how an owner who has loved (?), trained and ridden horses for many years, could then watch those same horses starve to death.

Right out the back window.  Starving.  And the even worse part… they were surrounded by greenery that they couldn’t reach.

The horses were seized on Sunday and turned over to Sound Equine Options  (FB) .  Clyde is just over a 1 on the Henneke Scale.  Bonnie is slightly better.

Can we help them?  Maybe that Holiday Latte money?  Every drop adds up!

The gelding, Clyde, begging the workman who found them to do something.

THEIR STORY

Bonnie and Clyde lived on the end of a long country road in a muddy pasture where they were easily missed.

A workman who was new to the area, happened to spot the two horses and IMMEDIATELY turned the owner into the County.

All we know is that these are 20 year-old paint horses that lived together most all of their lives with this owner.  They are extremely polite, trained and friendly – .

They are on the UC David refeeding protocol now and need everything:  digestible food, supplements, trims, teeth done and blankets because it is snowing and they have no meat on their bones.

Can you imagine being a totally trained horse and then your owners quit feeding you?

Wow.
