HOW ABOUT SOME GOOD NEWS?! AN UPDATE ON BABY JEWEL!






BEFORE WE BEGIN:  WE ARE ORDERING BITLESS LG BRIDLES THIS WEEK (FROM GERMANY).  IF YOU WANT ONE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW VIA THIS LINK.  YOU CAN READ TESTIMONIALS FROM THE OTHERS WHO HAVE PURCHASED THIS AMAZING (IMHO) BRIDLE!

HOORAY!  Some good news!!

In case you weren’t able to read our earlier post on the miracle birth of Jewel, here is that post.

In short, all the mares rescued from THE MANY slipped their foals which was probably a good thing considering the shape of the mares… HOWEVER, one mare was found to be in foal – against all odds.  Yup.  Even though this mare was terribly skinny and had no milk, she delivered a healthy (early and only 40 lbs upon arrival) foal.

All vets and tech at attendance during her birth were adamant that not one more horse would die from this horrible situation so they went into full action to do whatever was needed to save this baby.  She meant hope and life for all the suffering of her herd mates.

And they were successful!  Everyone banded together to get Jewel the nutrition, attention and help she needed while her mother continued to gain weight and formulate milk.

And now, a little over a week later, Jewel and her mother are doing GREAT!  Filly is still so tiny that she is wearing a dog blanket, but she is frisky and acting like any other baby.  Wahoo!

Mama has gained enough weight to bring in full milk, readily available!

Things are looking up!

Professional photog, Marie Cobb, took this lovely image of Jewel. Wow, from starvation to this!

 

The bar is finally OPEN!

Two weeks ago I wrote about 3 mares from THE MANY who had made it into a wonderful new home.  Here is that story.

These mares looked awful… and now look like this!

Hooray for those that fight the good fight!!!

    Thanks for all you do to save these magnificent animals.
    I have saved 5 and they will live out their life hear as long as
    I am alive. Two are Standardbreds that raced, one PMU from Canada
    @4 mos. now 6 yrs and An Amish Horse and last but not least a 1/2
    Draft/Morgan Starvation case. Would love to donate but I do what
    ever it takes to keep my herd healthy. So I am pretty Horse Poor.
    I commend you all . May God Bless
