Rainbow Meadows Equine Rescue and Retirement, Inc. – and the rescue heading up the rehabilitation of the Kansas 53, wrote this to us after yesterday’s post:
A HUGE THANK YOU from Rainbow Meadows (in Kansas). Your support will help us ensure the recovery of the Kansas 53!!
And we have update photos!
HERE WE GO!
Here are some of the YEARLINGS AND 2 YEAR-OLDS that were malnourished and stunted.
MORE OF THE PREGNANT MARES… all looking skinny but much better!
We didn’t focus on these mares, but they are all part of the malnourished and horribly managed herd.
This mare, who we all hoped would make it, lost her baby… and suffered a horrible choke and respiratory failure. She was humanely put down – probably she had lost her will to survive. She was morose after the stillbirth and never recovered.
AND A SUCCESSFUL BIRTH…
THANK YOU ALL!!
