OUR DONATION RECEIPT to Rood and Riddle ER Equine hospital for July’s Bucket Fund Foal, Little Gus, who sadly, did not survive.






It is so sad to write this because Gus didn’t make it…  (Read updated post on Gus here) but also uplifting that we are helping Heart of Phoenix Rescue with their vet bills for Gus.  The Horse and Man Group helping HPR, allows for more horses to be rescued.

In less than 24 hours of fund raising, we were able to donate $1100 to Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital for little Gus.

Thank you, everyone, for coming together with prayers and donations.  THANK YOU.

EVERYONE did everything they could to help him… And, internally, he would have recovered. But something happened to his front leg tendons and ligaments. He was unable to stand for long periods and he would not have been able to carry his own weight as he grew.

So tragic. Gus, our July Bucket Fund foal has passed over the rainbow bridge.






I’m not sure the full details, but evidently Gus was fairly sound internally… the issue was his front legs.  There had been an injury to both of his front legs (I haven’t received the details) and the vets at Rood and Riddle felt that he would be in pain his entire life.

So, Heart of Phoenix Rescue made the difficult decision to let him go.

Your donations (Thank you!) will go towards Gus’s emergency medical bills.

Thank you for all of your prayers, good will and donations.  Knowing we were here, allowed Heart of Phoenix to do everything they could for Gus.  Thank you.

Godspeed, little one.  We all tried but the horsegods needed you with them.
