AN UPDATE ON OUR BUCKET FUND FILLY FOAL, SINCLAIR!






GOOD NEWS!

Even though she looked pretty bad in the original photos of her rescue… this girl has bounded back!  She spent 2 nights in the hospital and now is in the house of LRTC member, Brittany Denoyer.

You can tell, if you look at the photos… Sinclair is in a room of a house.  It looks like they have stacks of new flooring ready to go.  She has a window, blinds and a baby gate.  I’m sure this is the easiest way for all to keep solid eyes on her and to keep her temperature regulated during all of our freezing storms here on the West Coast.  (Sinclair was rescued off of the Virginia Range near Reno, Nevada.)

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  THANK YOU in advance!  We are MORE THAN HALFWAY TO OUR GOAL in helping her rescuers with her meds, milk replacer and hospital stay!

THE NAME… WHY SINCLAIR?, I asked…

LRTC watches over 3000 wild horses on the Virginia Range and throughout the Nevada state.  I was told that during emergency situations, they tend to grab whatever name they can think of and don’t put a lot of thought into it, like they do for regular, uneventful listing and record keeping.

So… the rescue team trying to save this baby could only think of the gas station on the nearest corner, which was a Sinclair.

The Sinclair Dinosaur.

Honestly, I have been in love with that green dinosaur for years… so it is OK by me!

HERE SHE IS… CHECKING OUT HER WORLD.

Standing steadily on her third day of life. She’s drinking and behaving like a regular baby, although weak. So far, so good.

EMERGENCY APRIL BUCKET FUND FOR TINY, JUST BORN, WILD BABY: SINCLAIR. MAMA had no milk. Baby was discovered crumpled in a ball on the range – IN HONOR OF DODGER, please can we help save this newborn?!






Baby Sinclair needs help.  In honor of Dodger, I’d like to jump in and help.  She is just 24 hours old.  Her Mom has no milk and this baby was rolled and kicked around before being rescued by LRTC.

Just born, tiny Sinclair. Her mother had no milk, she was failing, curled in a ball. The stallion was trying to get to the mare and in the scuffle, roughed up the baby.

In the car, racing to the hospital.

This baby is critical.  IN HONOR OF DODGER, can we help save this tiny newborn?!  She will need more plasma, meds, milk replacers and eye treatment (not sure what condition yet).  All donations are 100% tax deductible.  THANK YOU in advance.

THE STORY

A Nevada Range Wild Mama had no milk and the wild stallion was chasing the Mom and accidentally roughing up the baby.  Baby was down and couldn’t get up.  She was born yesterday but had gotten no milk and was in bad shape.

Advocates at LRTC stepped in to rescue little Sinclair.  She was raced to the hospital and given plasma immediately.  The vets worked to warm her body, tend to her bruised eye and tube her so that she could get the milk she so desperately needed.

LRTC volunteer with baby in the car, heading to the equine hospital.  Baby was alert but crashed on the way.

Baby Sinclair at the hospital, waiting to be seen. She was cold and shaking. (All volunteers are corona virus safe as well… )

Vet checks her color and her swollen eye. She is given plasma immediately and warming blankets.

The plasma did revive her… she was moving again. Vets tubed her to administer milk.

THIS BABY IS CRITICAL.  LET’S HELP THIS NEWBORN IN THE NAME OF DODGER THE ELDER WHO WE LOST LAST WEEK AT 40 YEARS OF AGE…

I think the old man would be very honored to help a young one.  Thank you from my heart.

She made it through the first night… very critical still. Her suck reflex is not good, but when she was awake, she did drink from a bucket, so there is great hope for her.
