IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!! CUPCAKES OR YUMMY CHOCOLATE CAKE, ANYONE?! JOIN ME! Let’s CELEBRATE and help August Bucket Fund horse, Luna, at the same time!






In June, when Corona virus was strong and California was totally shut down (as it is again now), I had a birthday!  Usually, on my birthday, I celebrate with donor cake and lovely items of cheer for the Bucket Fund.  But this year, for some reason, I just felt like people might not have been in the mood to play along and donate for a Bucket Fund horse.

Today, I think it is time to go on living and get back to as normal as possible.

So, I thought we could help Luna by celebrating my birthday (late)!

(June Bucket Fund story here.)  If you were ever going to buy me a coffee or a cupcake on my birthday because you’ve enjoyed the blog  – PLEASE Do!  Thank you very much!  And I will give it to Luna for her recovery.  All birthday donations are 100% tax deductible, too!   Can’t beat that!!  Many thanks in advance!

EARLY AUGUST BUCKET FUND – because SHE NEEDS US! Meet Luna, the Friesian mare…






Our August Bucket Fund is starting early because Luna (18-20 year old Friesian mare) really, really needs our help.  Luna has been rescued by Minnesota’s Beyond Sanctuary, run by veterinarian, Melissa Shelton.  Shelton was asked to take Luna after the mare’s wheelchair bound and frail owner surrendered her after a humane investigation.

Luna is in very bad shape.  Starved, neglected, horrible teeth, bad feet, untreated Cushings, deteriorated health due to neglect and DSLD.  But, the good news… Dr. Shelton is doing everything in her power, around the clock, to bring this girl back from the brink.

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

HER STORY…

Not much is known since she was a surrender… however, we do know that relatives of the owner felt the horse was just old and looked in this condition because of old age.

Oy.

We have since learned that Luna responded to immediate care.

She is very sweet – and very weak.

Dr. Shelton says that currently, Luna is too weak to be sedated for Xrays… too weak to have her feet shaped (to help with the DSLD) and definitely too weak to have her teeth done.  Right now, she is being fed 6 times a day per the UC DAVIS refeeding program.  On top of all of that, Luna has untreated Cushings.

But, after a bath and some gentle grooming, Luna showed her bright eyes!  There is life iin this mare and we’d like to bring her back!

What better way than in the care of a vet in her own Sanctuary!

PLEASE LET US HELP THEM HELP HER – and right this wrong!

All donations are 100% tax deductible.  THANK YOU in advance!  This mare is so kind and sweet… let’s help her gain her health so she can live her life in Sanctuary!
