UPDATE ON THE BUCKET FUNDS!






Even though I have not been posting these past several months…  I have used the monthly donations (automatic payments to the Bucket Fund Foundations) to help two horses.   The first horse was back on August 10th, which was the anniversary of my Mom’s passing.   I actually used money she had left to me to rescue this mare who we named, Donna, after my Mom.

Here she is, in her gear still, at the auction.  Unbelievable.  You’d think they would have untacked her and sold the tack, at least take the weight off of her meatless bones.  This made me ill.

Here is Donna before, at the Feedlot in Texas.

This is Donna, at the feedlot in Texas. This was on August 10, the year anniversary of my Mom’s passing.

Here is Donna now!

THE SECOND HORSE

I chose All Seated in a Barn twice for the simple reason that I am already familiar, I can ask questions and get quick responses – and, they go to auctions often.  So, I knew that if I wanted to give money to a suitable needy horse quickly and without much time expended, it could be done easily through All Seated in a Barn.  Hence, when the automatic monthly donations filled up the Bucket Fund, I asked ASIAB to send a pic of who we could help immediately.

Maximillian was it.

This big, beautiful Percheron gelding was at the feedlot auction with a bad eye.  No one but meat buyers were going to bid on him with that injury, so ASIAB asked if we would help save him and help pay for his surgery.

Yes.

This photo is of Maximillian at the feedlot.  You may not be able to distinguish, but he has an injury above his eye which probably was the cause of his pushed-in eyeball.  The eye needed to come out.

If you click on the below image of Max, a video will play.  Or just click here.

MAX NOW!

Max had his surgery almost immediately after being removed from the feedlot.  Here he is today!  Pain free and starting his recovery and new life!

Drugged but cured! Starting his new life!

UPDATE on our July Bucket Fund wild foal, ARI! And the July Bucket Fund receipt!






You all remember last month’s story about the wild foal who was found trapped in a muddy bog.   The stallion and several mares were trying to get him out, which they did, but in the process, his entire right rear leg was degloved.   The poor baby spent 3 weeks in the hospital where he had acute medical attention and twice daily bandage changes.  You can read that story here.

Here are some pics from that story…

This is what rescuers saw when they came upon the scene. The baby is stuck in the bog and the other horses are trying to encourage him to move. The stallion is pawing him.

Rescuers came to his aid. They saw that most of his skin was missing on his right rear leg.

WARNING: NEXT PIC IS GRAPHIC

GRAPHIC PHOTO WARNING!!

This was after a few days, during a bandage change. His wounds were healing nicely!

UPDATE

I received a note from LRTC and Wild Horse Connection.  They told me that the healing in Ari over just one month is miraculous!  Unbelievable!

He is a very sweet boy and has made friends with older horses, who comfort him.  Ari fits in nicely.  When he is healed, this lovely boy will be adoptable.  And, isn’t it great news that he heals so well?!  A great quality in a horse!

Making friends with the older horses.

Taking classes… I love that he has one black and one white front hoof!

Looking dapper at his young age.

The only part of the wound still healing is his inner thigh and hock. Truly amazing. 30 days.
