DONATION RECEIPTS for April Bucket Fund babies (Sinclair, Oscar, Stitch and Goliath) as well as new pics of all of them!






Last month, we helped LRTC help the wild Viginia Range foals who were in dire need.   First Sinclair then Oscar, Stitch and Goliath on the same day!

You can read Sinclair’s story here.

DONATION RECEIPTS.

You all were incredible with your thoughts, prayers and donations!  We were able to send $3055 to LRTC for the help with these babies!

We sent money as often as we could because these rescues were ongoing and expensive.  (Plasma, milk replacers, meds, antibiotics… hospital stays are all very expensive for LRTC which is a volunteer group.)

Our first donation

The next

Again…

And final

LATEST PHOTOS!

This is Sinclair! Her mother was dry and she stood around for 24 hours without any first milk. Now, she’s a month old and has an amazing future!

This is Oscar. He was running with the wrong band after a mixup. He was failing without his mother.

Goliath. Born with too large with contracted tendons. He could not stand to nurse.

Goliath had to be harnessed to stand… and he wore casts for a few days. Look at his before and after!

Here is Stitch, doing great with his nurse mare who loves him. Luckily, Stitch’s timing was perfect and so was his personality for this wonderful mare who lost her foal on the day Stitch was brought in. Stitch was treated with plasma, antibiotics as well as his surgery to stitch up his wounds… and then was paired with this lovely mare!

She is teaching Stitch how to be a horse and they love each other.

A brief update on our April Bucket Fund baby, Goliath!






Over the weekend, the LRTC Team members who are caring for Goliath sent a few pics and videos to update us on his tremendous progress.

Yay!  Go, Goliath!  This foal continues to grow exponentially… but he is finally catching up with is coordination after a rough start with totally contracted tendons.  He was huge at birth and could not stand due to contracted tendons.  You can read his original story here.

Goliath was born in the wild with total contracted tendons. He could not stand to nurse. He was rescued by the LRTC team.

UPDATE 2 WEEKS LATER!

Goliath meets ball.

Ahhh, the dreaded flapping tissue!  *And wearing a halter, not a harness!!

Going for a nice walk… with a halter!

Meeting “Fancy” the Clydesdale.

They say he is fascinated by motorized things.
