An UPDATE on our June Bucket Fund Horses – neglected and starved.

If you missed the original story of our June Bucket Fund horses, it is linked here.

The neglect and abuse is sickening… but these horses are on the way to recovery, thanks to Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary.

We are just a few hundred dollars short of our goal!  It is wonderful to be able to give back to those who have rescued and supported these very sick horses!

UPDATES!

We are helping three of the many Tennessee Walking horses seized at a trainer’s facility.  Estelle, Gypsy and Royal were the worst cases.

All have EPM and are the medications, all have been starved and are being fed THRIVE and all need (and have received) major medical intervention.  The volunteers drive an hour and a half each way to pick up the THRIVE feed… Wow!

All that TLC and good work has brought fruition.  They are healing!

ESTELLE

I am still waiting for update pics… but I know she is improving.

Estelle was one of the worst...

Estelle was one of the worst… this is an intake photo.  We do not have a photo yet but we understand she is improving.

GYPSY

Gypsy with Estelle.  Gypsy lost her foal a week before rescue.  Can you imagine her pregnant and in this state?!  Who would do this?

Gypsy (brown) with Estelle a few days after their initial rescue. Gypsy lost her foal a week before rescue. Can you imagine her pregnant and in this state?! Who would do this?

Gypsy is still very thin and weak… but her EPM medicine (expensive) and daily THRIVE re-feeding pellets (also expensive) have brought her along smoothly and steadily.  Her feet have been tended, her teeth treated, full bloodwork and veterinary workups.

Look at this pretty girl!  She’s gonna make it!

This is Gypsy after much TLC, EPM medicine and daily Thrive refeeding nutrition.

Wow! What a difference!

ROYAL

After further examination, Royal isn’t a senior horse – he just looked that way. He isn’t black, either… he was just filthy.  Royal is actually roan and 7-8 years old.  A total gentleman!  His foster just loves him!

Although Royal is still unsteady on his feet, he has tried a few gallops and seems to be feeling much, much better.

Royal is also receiving daily EPM medicine and daily THRIVE feed as well as farrier, dental, vet workups, blood panels…

Royal was a wobbly, filthy, horribly skinny wreak of a stallion with EPM, horrible feet and no strength.

Here is Royal now:

Getting his awful feet fixed.

Trying out his new feet!

Good rest on clean soil surrounded by TLC.

Even stronger! (His foster says he is still wobbly but much better!)

Royal’s foster says he is the most kind horse she has ever known.

His foster Mom thinks the world of him... the most polite stallion she has ever met.

I WILL UPDATE ON ESTELLE as soon as we receive photos!  Good job, everyone!
