Poor Troubadour…






OK, I think I failed Troubadour a little bit.  You see, I posted his February Emergency Bucket Fund story on a Friday – last Friday.  I knew better.  I never post big stories on Fridays… because those are the least read days, followed by Sat/Sun and Monday – also more quiet days.  Because I made that decision, Troubadour’s Bucket is not very full.  I let him down.

So, I’m posting about Troubadour again, now, today.

He was left in horrid conditions and he is in very poor health.  Pictures tell 1000 words.  IF you have Starbucks money or car seat change, please donate to this sweet, stunted 4 year-old TWH baby stud.  He needs food, care, worming, dental work,  skin treatments and to be gelded once he is strong enough.  Thank you in advance!

All donations are 100% tax deductibleMany, Many thanks!  We are $750 away from our goal to help this sweet, kind, trusting boy… who allowed rescuers to halter him and – gently – lead him out of there!

Nails everywhere, broken pallets, sharp metals, thick manure, filthy water and no food. That hay was thrown there when the owner saw animal control.

Horrible conditions. A very depressed, young horse.  That nasty liquid in the cooler was the only water available.

He is very skinny and has skin issues – besides having worn a calf halter way too high and tight on his face.  That hay was put out there the morning he was rescued.  He had no food earlier.

As soon as he was released, he dove into this muddy water. It was better than what he had.

TROUBADOUR AFTER A GOOD GROOMING!

What a fine, young horse.  He deserves a boost after what he has endured.  Thank you!

EMERGENCY FEBRUARY BUCKET FUND! RESCUERS FOUND THIS YOUNG HORSE – NOW NAMED, “TROUBADOUR” – IN AWFUL CONDITIONS.






Humans and their treatment of animals amazes me and also confounds me.  This poor little 3 year old horse lived like this – and their humans thought it was just fine.  Thank horsegods for Animal Control who called in Heart of Phoenix to come get this poor horse.

Trubadour is a wreck.  He is smelly, skinny, full of lice and worms… the vet is on the way. This poor guy had on a cow halter that was cutting into his face and eye.  He was living among trash and sharp metal flashing, broken pallets, a foot of manure, boards with nails in them, unsafe wires and chains…  It is appalling and amazing that this guy doesn’t have cuts all over him and tetanus.

Please, please let us help this young horse!  Let’s right the wrong.  Look what he endured, yet he was willing to be led by humans OUT OF THERE.

THEY PUT OUT HAY AND COW GRAIN WHEN AUTHORITIES CAME…but no one was fooled.

There was hay and corn grain all over the manure floor when authorities arrived… But it didn’t work.  Troubadour was taken away, thank Horsegods, Animal Control and Heart of Phoenix Rescue!

Troubadour is very skinny even though he has a thick coat.   The vet will give a full report as soon as he can.

Please help Troubadour’s rescuers care for him!  He is estimated to be 3 years-old.  Probably a Tennessee Walking Horse.

You can see his bones, here.

Can you imagine?

Hazards everywhere

As they walked him out, he drank in a pool of mud water. Cleaner than what was in his cooler.

The fresh hay on top of manure.

Once rescuers found him and put a HORSE halter on him, they loosened the cow halter that was embedded in his face.

No one was fooled. Clearly Troubadour only had the wood box to eat previously.

ANY amount adds up.  Please help us right this wrong!!
