I saw this on FB and wanted to share… The Horse and Man Foundation (you) have helped this group with equipment over the years. Clearly, these people are dedicated and I’m so proud of their good work.
Cathy got some good images of the crew in action today (10/5) dealing with a range stallion that had about ten feet of fence wire entangled around his right hind pastern.
A resident allowed us to herd the band of horses into her yard where we shortened the length of the wire by cutting it. (As we would confine them, the other horses would step on the trailing wire, complicating things.) Then we set up a trap, and after reducing the numbers of the horse in the trap to three, I was able to get the wire unwound and the horses all back on the range.
It might sound simple but this was a wild stallion and it took cool, calm, trained coordination by everyone on the team to make this job a success.
More details are provided in the image captions. (BTW, this was our 5th call of the day.)
OCTOBER BUCKET FUND!! Let’s help NUNU recover! She is the horse who was ridden at a run for 7 miles on a Chicago freeway. OMG. I cannot tell you how I feel about the idiot who did this to this mare. All donations are 100% tax deductible and will go to her recovery. Yes, she is alive.
