Looking for a Bucket Fund Horse… do you know a dire case? And and update on Keona!






Now that Facebook has squashed our ability to see or be seen, it has become more difficult to find Bucket Fund stories…  I wanted to support the horses who were hurt during the fireworks explosion in CA, but upon contacting the service caring for them, they said the horses have received enough donations to care for them.  Now I have no ideas for April’s Bucket Fund horse.

So… I am happy to hear any stories you may have of horses/foals/donkeys in dire need.  Just know that the issue has to be current and urgent, and that we don’t give funds to individuals, only vets, feed stores and registered equine rescues.

Thank you for helping here.  I need lots of ears and eyes out there to find these needy horses!

Feel free to comment or email me.

UPDATE ON KEONA

Our Bucket Fund horses from last month, Keona and Kiki, are doing well, considering.  They are gaining good weight and are feeling much better!

This morning, I received these two photos of Keona.  Poor girl.  She looks miserable!

March Bucket Fund receipts and an UPDATE on Keona and Kiki!






Well, so far, no babies.  Phooey.  I had wanted to meet the babies before March was over.  And now we are fully into April and still no babies.

However, the good news is that our March Bucket Fund pregnant, neglected, skinny and young Tribal horses Keona (4 years) and Kiki (2 years)… look really good!  Having the babies hang on for a longer time while Mamas beef up and get healthy, is a very good thing!

UPDATE PICS.

These are hot off the press tonight as they were having dinner.  I am told that Keona (palomino) is rolling a lot.  Of course, this plus her bag and waxing are all signs of impending birth… but Keona is keeping the date a secret thus far.  We shall see…

Kiki looks SO MUCH BETTER.  When she came in, she was a mere skeleton.  Now she has some protection and her baby will benefit from all this great nutrition.

Poor Keona. I feel her…

Keona is due any minute. She is waxing, rolling a lot, has a full bag, her milk vein is protruding and the baby has shifted.

Kiki has some time left and looks much better than she did a month ago. Hopefully the baby will pull through the starvation. Kiki is coming 3 years old – a baby herself.

Our Pay Pal receipt.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!  A JOB WELL DONE!
