UPDATE on Buddy and our January Bucket Fund receipts!






We surpassed our goal for 28 year-old Buddy who was found skinny and neglected in a kill pen –  he has reaped the benefits of your kindness!  (Original Story posted here.)

Buddy at the auction…

BUDDY NOW!

Vet care, great food, 2 new blankets and body work!  Life is good.  THANK YOU, everyone, who said prayers, held good thoughts and donated.

He looks great and has gained so much weight already.  He looks happy and alert!  I love his face during his adjustment!  Look how well his eyes have cleared, too!

Also, for those wondering… the number tags are GLUED on with a very strong glue.  You need a razor blade to remove them, or lots and lots of mineral oil.  (I know, I’m going through it now with my 3 new kill pen equines.)  She will get his number off when his hair grows/falls out or she has 2 sunny days in a row to work the oil to loosen the glue.

Buddy with 3 weeks of good nutrition, vet visits, hoof treatment, teeth treatment, 2 blankets and body work!

This is his new, orange blanket.

Buddy’s other blanket. He can wear them both at once when it is really cold. Both waterproof.

OUR DONATION RECEIPTS

Since No Nonsense Natural Horsemanship Rescue is not a 501c3, we paid Buddy’s veterinarian directly.  We also paid for his body work directly.

We paid for Buddy’s body work

We paid for Buddy’s veterinarian services directly. I had a long and lovely conversation with the vet regarding Buddy and his future needs.

This is an additional receipt showing that the body exam was for a horse.

 

THANK YOU, EVERYONE.  YOUR DONATIONS MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN BUDDY’S LIFE.

December Bucket Fund Donation Receipts! THANK YOU ALL.






December Bucket Fund was for All Seated in a Barn – and 5 specific equines… although we ended up helping 7!  Thank you thank you thank you!

RECEIPTS AND STORIES

Our goal last month was to help 2 minis, one pregnant donkey, one jenny and a one-eyed pony  bailed from the Texas kill pen and facilitate transportation and finding new homes.

Not only did we find new homes for them all, but we also helped with transport and adoption of the male donkey who was sent to my work at Halter Ranch (the girls were paid for by Halter Ranch, but the male was added at the last minute).

A job very well done!  New lives for all – plus one!

RECEIPTS.

This receipt was to help pay for the 3 who went to Grass Valley. The mini pair and the pregnant donkey.

This is for the one-eyed pony and the fuzzy eared jenny who came to be with Norma Jean.

This was for the additional elder jenny that needed a home.

This was a transportation fee.

This was for the BLM wild donkey that ended up at Halter Ranch

PICS

I’m sure most of you have seen the pics of the 2 minis and the pregnant jenny who were sent to Grass Valley…

Jen, in Grass Valley, says she plays with them all the time – she so misses her horses. Jen was a dressage rider for years.

Jen feels that these two are mother and daughter.  This is the mother.

This poor Jenny (now named, “Molly”) lost her baby. The vet said that she has an undetected UTI and the baby slipped. Jen is sad that there will be no baby, but now Molly is Jen’s baby.

These are the two at my house. Not sure of the names yet… they are both very timid still. The little one, with her mop top, could be Pebbles or Pickles, not sure. The wonky flopped necked older gal, still thinking… She brays like a Wookie.

This is the one-eyed pony. He is very feisty and likes to fight… so we are thinking, Rocky Balboa.

This is a photo taken through a binocular lens. We found the 4 wild BLM donkeys on the 750 acres at Halter Ranch. The brown male in front is the one we helped deliver to Halter Ranch.
