EMERGENCY BUCKET FUND! 3 ORPHANED WILD FOALS (just found!), 1 attacked by a stallion band, 1 left next to its deceased mother and 1 left alone in the hot sun with no mother. PLEASE SHARE! LET’S HELP THESE BABIES!






(Virginia Range, Nevada)  Life started horribly for these 3 Nevada Range wild newborn foals.  One was attacked by stallions after losing her Mom, one lost his mom after his own birth, and the last was left orphaned in the hot sun.  Hopefully, their stories will end well.

Rescuers found these babies and are doing everything in their power to save them.  Please, let’s help those who are on the ground, doing this incredible work, looking out for and rescuing these wild babies.  New foals in this shape – crash easily, so they are all on 24-hour care.

All donations are 100% tax deductible.  Every drop counts in the bucket.  Thank you in advance!

LITTLE MO

This is Little Mo who was beaten up by full grown stallions. She has cuts and contusions all over her little body. But, she is a fighter!

MO: Maureen or “Little Mo” was found laying under a barbed wire fence after being chased and attacked by a band of 4 wild stallions.  Somehow, she made it under the fence, but was totally hammered.  Her eye was swollen shut, her chest was cut through, she had bites and nicks all over her.  Maureen is in intensive care.  She received IV fluids, plasma (twice) and several stitches and Xrays.  She has 24-hour care right now.

WARNING GRAPHIC PIC OF ROY AND HIS DAM:  ROY

This is newborn, Roy. He was found just like this… next to him dam who passed during the birthing process. Scavengers were already on hand. Roy was found just in time.

How Roy was found…

Trying to keep Roy from crashing while in ER care.  He is in Intensive Care now.

ROY:  Roy was found yesterday, next to its deceased mother who passed shortly after childbirth.  This baby was saved before the scavengers got to him.  Awful.  Roy was rushed to the Equine Emergency hospital in the back of the rescuer’s car.  Roy was crashing and immediately given IV fluids, colostrum, and every medicine possible to keep him from going down.  Roy was/is severely dehydrated (which can cause impacted stool).   He is still with us as I write this.

WRIGLEY

Wrigley was found laying in the hot sun – his dam not around. This herd is not his. The black arrow is Wrigley. The red arrows are street signs for the highway below. It is believed that his dam was killed crossing the highway.

This is newborn Wrigley when he arrived at the hospital. He might look good, but he is grossly dehydrated and only revived with ample IV fluids. They are watching him 24/7.

WRIGLEY:  Wrigley was found alone, laying in the sun.  He was near another band, but it wasn’t his band.  His mother was no where to be found.  He was found very near a highway and several horses have been struck recently.   Wrigley was horribly dehydrated and did not receive colostrum so he had plasma ($500 a bag…), IV fluids and is fully impacted as I write this.  His attendants are doing everything possible to help him pass the impaction.    He looks like he is healthy, but he is not.  He is very, very ill.

PLEASE, WE CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TODAY, for these foals and for the rescuers who saved these babies.

He is newly born. Roy is a mess. He dried off in the sun and is all cakey and bug infested and sick.

This was Mo when they first found her. She was laying in a muddy stream.

AGain, this is Wrigley… he looks good, but he isn’t. He hasn’t passed any manure.
The red arrow points to a massive plot of warts which had to be removed because it blocked his entire nostril and airway.

All donations are 100% tax deductible.  Starbucks change adds up!  Please let’s give some relieve to those who are trying to hard to save these babies!

LET’S RENAME GRANNY PONY, our April Bucket Fund horse… she deserves a better name, right?!…






Granny Pony is not a lovely name.  Especially for a horse that has worked so hard to survive – thrown in with huge horses at the meat market, Granny (who is mostly blind) was a 1 on the scale and battered from her ordeal.  But, after two weeks of love and care, she is doing so much better!   She needs her teeth done and a few trims… and we are $275 short of our goal.

Original story here.

Granny Pony absolutely needs a better name, so why not offer chances to play and win!   Fun!!

HERE ARE THE 3 RULES:

  1.  Donate $20 and offer your name choice in the Pay Pal MEMO section.  Or email me with your choice.  If you donate $40, your name choice will go into the hat 2 times.  $60, 3x – and so on.
  2.  If you have already donated $20 (or more) email me your name choice and I will put it in the hat as many times as you have donated $20.  For example, if you donated $100 for Granny Pony previously this month, your name choice will go in 5 times.
  3.  On the last day of April, we will put a name out of the hat!

TO PLAY THE GAME AND SUGGEST A NAME, DONATE $20 (one name in hat for each $20) AND ADD YOUR NAME CHOICE, CLICK HERE.

All donations are 100% tax deductible.  THANK YOU in advance!!

Granny Pony is doing so much better! Let’s give her a new name!  (Yes, her hips are still very visible… she needs her teeth done as soon as she is a bit stronger.  She also needs a trim.)

 

YAY!!!  HERE ARE NEW PICS OF GRANNY PONY FOR YOUR TO LOOK OVER AND DECIDE WHAT NAME FITS HER!

Doesn’t she look great?!  The first 10 days were very sketchy… but now she is stable and eating like, well, a little horse!  Her teeth are bad and she needs a thorough dental, plus her trim, but all in all, she is coming along very well!  Thank you all for helping her!

She is still very skinny on the topline and hipline, but she is bright and eating/drinking. When she is strong enough to have her teeth done, that will help. Her teeth really need help.

She is alert and bright, but she doesn’t see well. You can look at her ears and note her interest! Yes, her feet are next… In the first days, she wasn’t stable enough to hold up any legs…

Eating and drinking like a Champ!

This is Granny 3 weeks ago at the meat auction. She has come a long way! THANK YOU, everyone!

Use the below button to donate $20 (or increments of $20!) to add your favorite name to the hat!  THANK YOU THANK YOU!  All donations are 100% tax deductible!
