OCTOBER BUCKET FUND HORSES! A wild filly with an impaction, a beaten-up young filly and an old man with a lung infection weeping through his eye. Please share!






I love to help horses in dire need, but it is sad when there are so many options…  This month, we are helping 3 horses from 2 different Rescues.  …Sick, beaten-up and infection weeping through the eye…  One wild, two from a killer auction.

The wild baby with the impaction, the beat-up filly and the old gelding with a respiratory infection coming out through his eye.

 

THEIR STORIES

  1.  Cricket, the wild baby with the impaction was rescued by Three Sisters Equine Rescue in Oregon.  They do a great job there and they really need help!  Here is what they told me:

“She had an upper gi compaction ( I can also get a vet write up for you if that helps?) she struggled for days so her GI tract is inflamed now and we are treating to prevent infection and she’s on an expensive feeding protocol for another month. She’s on medical care (2 antibiotics, gastric guard, equiotic for another 7 days) This is awesome! Thank you so much for reaching out to us! So much gratitude.”

She is so pretty!

2)  The auction filly who was horribly beaten-up and had massive slices up and down her back legs.  She was run through the auction, bleeding.  All Seated in a Barn bid on her an immediately brought her to the vet.  They wrapped her legs with heavy duty healing wraps, dosed her with antibiotics and pain killers to make her more comfortable and tended to her wounds.  Hopefully, she will perk up soon.

3)  The old gelding whose eye was oozing infection.  All Seated in a Barn also bid on him and immediately took him to the vet who diagnosed an upper respiratory infection – coming out of his eye.  This is what they said:

“He has a bad upper respiratory infection that wasn’t treated so it started coming out of his eyes since his sinuses were closed.”

Can you imagine the pain here??  And how is he breathing?!  THIS IS AWFUL.

Please let’s help these poor horses who feel MISERABLE right now.  And, for the two who came from the auction, I’m sure they are traumatized as well as defeated.

LET’S HELP THE PEOPLE WHO ARE HELPING THESE POOR HORSES!

Last month, we helped rescue “Donna’s 10”.   These were starved, neglected older horses who were taken in by Falcon Ridge Rescue.  You can read the original story here.
