GABE, a 4 year-old wild horse is saved from a ditch!






I saw this wild rescue by LRTC (who were have helped via Bucket Funds) and I wanted to share with you all.  This is why we support groups who do such good work!

ORIGINAL STORY here.

Wild Horse Connection
Update LRTC (rescue) was able to successfully get Gabe unstuck. We will have our volunteers monitor his condition over the next few days. New photos added. We have such an amazing rescue team, thank you LRTC!!
Sometimes people ask what all we do, so photos show much more than we can describe. I got this call from someone who was hiking in the hills that a horse was trapped in a ravine. Immediately got the LRTC rescue team involved. We sent 3 of our volunteers that are familiar with this area up to assess and get us these photos. Two of our trained rescue team responded shortly after. With these photos the technical team was able to get all the equipment together and a full certified rescue team. This is currently happening and the team will be arriving shortly, they will have to hike up a mile with all the necessary equipment. We will update with the outcome. So now when you hear about rescues this gives you an idea. We are so thankful for all of the LRTC rescue team and the hours of training and certifications to assist in these emergencies.

*I was told by Willis from LRTC that the volunteers have been given permission to start diversity feeding until the wild grasses come up again.  Yes, Gabe is a bit thin… and that is because he is a growing young horse and the range is sparse right now.

PHOTOS OF GABE AS HE HAS GROWN UP… –

LRTC and the Wild Horse Connection has known Gabe since his birth 3.5 years ago.  Here are pics taken by those who watch over the Virginia Range wild horses.

From the Wild Horse Connection FB post:

Gabe…you were in the arms of so many angels today. We are beyond grateful that you are still with us …Wild & Free on the Virginia Range!
Gabe was our amazing rescue today, stuck in a tight ravine, he is a 3.5 year old bachelor stallion. He is typically seen with four other bachelor boys and we are certain they will all meet up again soon

Vet saves Dog choking on Ball – see how!






Many of you might have already seen this method to save a dog choking on a ball… but I think everyone should see this so I’m posting.  Perfect for a Sunday!

Click here to see original post.  If you don’t do FB, click here to read the story.

FB:  West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center
Yesterday, two unrelated large dogs were rushed into the ER while choking on a ball (one tennis ball, one solid rubber ball) coincidentally within one hour of each other. Although not a common emergency, this is something veterinarians can see from time to time.
Most often, panicked vets will try prying the ball out of the back of the dog’s throat with their hands or forceps instruments, which has a high rate of failure, and the dog will then require emergency tracheostomy to prevent suffocation. Sometimes, many times, it’s too late.
There is a technique that is miraculously not widely enough known called the external extraction technique, which almost always results in the quickest ability to remove a ball lodged in the back of the throat and blocking the airway. With permission from both of these dogs’ owners, we are sharing these two videos to spread awareness in the hopes that many other lives will be saved in the future.
Both dogs, especially the second dog, were in life threatening conditions when they arrived but after the swift action of our awesome cohesive team of doctors, nurses, and assistants, they are expected to make a continued complete recovery.
