Last month, we had two Bucket Fund Horses…
1) The first May Bucket Fund was Aria, the little filly who was born with a horribly contracted tendon. It was thought that she needed surgery, but all involved decided to start with a DynaSplint.
The Horse and Man Group paid for the lease on the DynaSplint ($500) and also paid an additional $500 towards the future vet visits for fittings and checkups.
2) The second May Bucket Fund was for LRTC who desired a Hast Equine Water Rescue Harness for flash flood season – and beyond.
Here was their response when the money was raised:
“Wow! You guys ROCK!!!! Thanks!
UPDATE ON OUR JUNE BUCKET FUND MARE, KATE!
Thank you all for allowing me the do-over to tell Kate’s story properly yesterday!
You all rallied and Kate’s owner is overwhelmed and very appreciative! Thank you all for your prayers, good will, comments, emails and outpouring of support!
Here is the latest news as of this evening from Leah:
I saw Kate today. It was right before she had a cleansing and you saw in the photos the gunk that was coming out. The incisions were the ugliest that I’ve seen so far, but her attitude was good. A couple friends came with me and brought treats, she ate them up and was getting feisty for more. I loved seeing some of her old self coming through. :-)
The gas pocket was from the base of her neck up to her head. They’ve opened up 4 spots so far, the one along her esophagus is the biggest.
Here are the least graphic photos.
