Our 2ND DONATION RECEIPT to M&J Peterson Horse Transport to transport, house and feed the horses of the Australian fires!






Our January Bucket Fund recipients are the brave men and women from M&J Peterson Horse Transport who brought over 300 horses to safety as they were being threatened by the horrific fires in Australia.  They did this all on their own time and money.  You can read our original story here.

DONATION RECEIPTS FROM ALL OF YOU… TO M&J HORSE TRANSPORTATION!

Immediately, we sent the initial lot of funds received and posted that donation receipt ($2228 AUD) last week.  You can see the receipt and read that story here.

On Saturday, we sent the next batch of accrued donations with a total of $1395 AUD!  Below is the new donation receipt for this most recent payment.

THANK YOU, HORSE AND MAN GROUP!!  YOUR  PRAYERS, THOUGHTS AND DONATIONS LEAVE ME IN AWE.   Thank you.

This is so incredible!  Matt and Jackie are humbled and thrilled with this help from so far away.  They have been so gracious and so moved by all of your help.  THANK YOU!!

UPDATE on Rooster, our November Bucket Fund horse with the ground-breaking and life-saving skin graft!






You all may remember Rooster, the terminally injured horse whose wound hadn’t healed in over a year.  Rooster’s owner was told to euthanize him by several vets and specialists.

Enter Strawberry Mountain Mustangs who dug deeply and and found Keresis.  Keresis offered a new product, and a ground breaking new application protocol – and it is working!!

You can read Rooster’s original story, here.

Why Kerecis®?  (from the website)
Kerecis Omega3 is intact fish skin rich in naturally occurring Omega3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. When grafted onto damaged human tissue such as a burn or a diabetic wound, the material recruits the body’s own cells and is ultimately converted into living tissue.

Compared to mammalian-based skin substitutes, Kerecis Omega3 offers improved economics and clinical performance, as well as reduced disease transfer risk and no cultural constraints on usage.

Other tissue-transplant products are based on tissues of human and porcine origin. These are not ideal substitutes because heavy processing is needed to eliminate the risk of disease transmission. This harsh, anti-viral treatment removes most of the material’s natural components, making it dissimilar to human skin.

A goofy, recent pic of Rooster!  He is a perfect patient.

 

LOOK AT HIS SKIN GRAFT TODAY!

Rooster has his bandages and grafts changed weekly.  On the left is where he started (a wound that exposed bone, was 5″ across with necrotic and proud flesh).  On the right is where he is today!  Darla says the wound measures:

“Today’s pics on the right. We’re down to about 2 1/2″ across and 3 1/2″ diagonal. What we started with was over 5″ across everywhere.”

AMAZING!  Thank you SMM and Kerecis!
