EMERGENCY BUCKET FUND: WILD FOAL NOT ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH FAMILY BAND… DISTRAUGHT MOTHER HAD TO LEAVE HIM SUFFERING HEAT STROKE/PNEUMONIA … HE IS BEING RESCUED AS WE SPEAK!






He was spotted today during one of the hottest days of the year – in the Nevada (desert) Virginia Range.  He appeared to be about 2 months old.  A foal.  Unable to stand and follow his herd.  His mother was upset and hovering.

Tragically, even with her encouragement, he couldn’t rise -so his band had to leave him – in the sun.

Little Milan could not rise. His mother was frantic. But, the band had to move on – and leave him to suffer in the extreme heat.

Luckily workers in the area saw him and knew to call Wild Horse advocates.   The workers sat with him to comfort this very ill baby… they did their best, begged for aid and even paid for his Emergency Aid.  The foal was picked up, literally, in ER veterinarian’s arms and given immediate oxygen/fluids – then transported to a nearby equine hospital.

A worker in a local business called authorities and begged to find help for this baby who was dying before her eyes. The kind soul even paid for the ER call.  (This is a wild foal… he is trying so hard to be alert, but he cannot even move away from this human.  Amazing and sad because he is clearly in distress or he would run away.)

At the hospital, it was discovered that this little foal is suffering heat stroke and severe pneumonia.  It is touch and go but little Milan (the name of the street where he was found) is responding to treatment.  The doctors are holding vigil to save him.

Once help arrived, he was carried in human arms to the Equine Ambulance where he was given immediate oxygen and fluids to cool him down… but he was not responding as he should…

One of the workers who first noticed this little guy and desperately called for help because they  couldn’t watch this foal suffer and die in the heat –  has offered to pay the price for his pick up and ER care.  But Milan needs heavy antibiotics and 24/7 care until he comes out of this.

He is now at the ER with severe pneumonia. The Doctors feel his first dose of strong antibiotics has helped and are encouraged. But it is an expensive protocol – with 24/7 care.

HERE IS WHERE WE COME IN…

I received a desperate call from one of the Team members helping little Milan.  They want to save him but don’t have the funds to continue his care.  Could we help him?

Can we help this little guy on his road to recovery?  This is happening RIGHT NOW!  I’d like to be able to reassure the team helping him that Milan can receive his life saving care.

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  Please, it would be great to help this boy – especially after a selfless worker did everything she could to get him help.

Let’s do it for the lady who saved him and for his mother, who couldn’t!
