FEELGOOD TUESDAY: UPDATE ON NORTHSTAR, THE BURNED HORSE… do you remember him? He was doused with gasoline while in his pasture?


Monday, October 6th, 2014 | Filed under Updates




Do you remember the story of sweet, young Northstar who was doused with gasoline and set on fire while he was minding his own business in his pasture?

Here is the first story we did on his injury: click here.

Here is the second story we ran about the skin grafting process:  click here.

WELL, 2 YEARS LATER, HE IS RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL!

Thanks to all the incredible care from Dr. Blake Roseberry, his wife, Robyn, along with a dedicated staff, Northstar was released and went home in July.

You can read about the NORTHSTAR FOUNDATION here and FB.

I am sure that there were plenty of times that someone wanted to give up the fight… but thankfully, this team of caregivers held onto each other for support and fed off of the spirit of this fighter gelding!

THE BEFORES…

Baby Northstar.   He was born with his owners.  He is part of the family.

INTAKE PHOTOS.

Yup.  He was intentionally doused with gasoline and set afire – while he was safe in his own pasture…  NorthStar’s horrified owners stood by him for 2 years.

ONe of the early intake photos… he was intentionally doused with gasoline and set on fire in his own pasture. His shocked and grieving owners took him to the hospital and stood by his side for two years.

COMING HOME!

I’m sure there is ongoing aftercare and lots of sunscreen and sun sheets applied, but this boy looks alert, happy and fit!  Wahoo!

WE CAN DO SOMETHING TO ENCOURAGE THE SHERIFF TO ARREST THE PERP IN THE YANAHA CASE…! And an update!






Did any of you miss Yanaha’s story?  If so, you can read it here.

Basically… he (allegedly) cut out her genitals because she wouldn’t breed his stud.  She sat in a field like that for 3.5 weeks.  Now she is in the warm hands of Rockport Horse Rescue being tended to daily.  Yanaha’s vets have created a protocol to heal her wounds and are now working on finding the cause for her right rear leg lameness.

(See below on how to get the Sheriff to arrest the known perp.)

She needs our help to heal.

Yanaha is alert and doing well.  But, they need to figure out what is wrong with her right rear leg... She needs an MRI but the travel to Texas A&M will probably cause her wound to split open...

Yanaha is alert and doing well. But, they need to figure out what is wrong with her right rear non weight bearing leg…

UPDATE:

Yanaha is doing incredibly well – considering…  The wounds on her front leg and female parts are healing.  She is eating, drinking and very alert… grazing, playing and whinnying.  Yes, she can urinate but it runs down her leg.  Eventually, when she heals (and pushing doesn’t hurt), she will be able to deficate normally.

Rockport Horse Rescue and their veterinarians have been very busy trying to ascertain the next move for her recovery.  The challenge is her non-weight bearing right rear leg.

Xrays of her leg show no damage to the bones, which is good.  But, they need to find out if the issue is a soft tissue or nerve injury.  (They believe the knife cut or nicked a tendon, ligament or nerve.)

Once the decision is made on the next protocol, Yanaha will have to travel to get to the big equipment.  The problem with trailering for Yanaha is that she tends to split open her incisions around her excised female parts when she travels.  So, they are not real keen to have her travel – yet they know it is in her best interest to use the finest diagnostic equipment medicine has to offer.

Yanaha on Sunday.

Yanaha on Sunday. You’d never know what she has endured… by looking at her here.

WHAT WE CAN DO TO ENCOURAGE THE SHERIFF TO ARREST THE PERP

I’ve taken this information directly off of the Rockport Horse Rescue Facebook page.  You can also follow along with update on that FB page as well.

“UPDATE:  They know who (allegedly) did this to Yanaha!  TIME TO TAKE ACTION.  ACCORDING TO THE HERALD NEWSPAPER:
 “Please take two minutes and call/email Sheriff Moody of San Patricio County and tell him we demand justice for Yannaha! The Herald newspaper named Arturo Aleman of Gregory as the person who “allegedly” did this but no arrest has been made. The district attorney can not prosecute without an arrest and a case to work with. Sheriff needs to be pressured into making an arrest! Please help.
Call Sheriff Moody: 361-364-2251
Email Moody: smoody@co.san-patricio.tx.us
Email Administrative Assistant Diana: sp.admin@co.san-patricio.tx.us “
