March Bucket Fund filly, Keona, is almost ready to foal!!






We have two March Bucket Fund fillies – both tribal horses who were dumped, pregnant and starving, at the feedlot.  Luckily, they were pulled by LBL Rescue.  We are helping with medical expenses and starvation refeeding during pregnancy, teeth work, farrier work and the upcoming babies!

Right now, we are 2/3rds the way to our goal!

KEONA UPDATE!

Keona is close to foaling!  Here you can see her milk vein and that she keeps biting her sides.  Soon!

And, her topline looks better already!  Great nutrition in small amounts, often, is really helping!

Her milk vein is popping!  Yes, she is still super skinny, but she already looks much better!

Biting her sides…

 

MARCH BUCKET FUND!  SO SKINNY, THEY HARDLY LOOK HEAVILY PREGNANT, young, starved and left on a kill lot… MARCH BUCKET FUND tribal fillies: Keona and Kiki!

WE ARE 2/3 there!

AN UPDATE on Buddy and Goliath!






I received a current photo on Buddy, our January Bucket Fund horse.

To read his initial Bucket Fund story, click here.

It is heartwarming to see an older horse put on weight during winter.  I’m sure his warm coats have helped along with lots of great nutritional food and lots of much needed love.

Buddy continues to have body work to help his dropped hip, but there seems to be no pain in the area, so that’s good.  He has come a long way in 6 weeks and thank you all for your support!

GOLIATH

Goliath was our Bucket Fund baby from April, 2020.

You can read about him here.

Goliath in his first casts as an infant.

Goliath as a healthy baby… but walking on his toes.

This wild baby was born with contracted tendons so he could not stand to nurse.  He was saved by LRTC and nursed to health through many vet visits and castings of those legs.  Last month, Goliath had tendon surgery – and it was very successful!  He is walking flat footed!

I’m told he stands at 14’2 and he is only 10 months old!  Goliath truly is a goliath!
