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.

UPDATE ON SHAKIRA and the final March Bucket Fund Donation Receipt!






Last month, our Bucket Fund horses were Tia and Shakira, two mares who had been cooped up in a manure filled barn, never being let out, for years.

You can read the original story here.

 

UPDATE

Unfortunately, Tia did not survive (read her story here).  However, Shakira is doing well!  Here is an update:

Hi there,

Here are the most recent photos I have of Shakira – just playful photos taken with Jill Daigle, one of our staff who has been her primary caretaker. They adore each other- Shakira follows her around like a puppy.

Thank you again for all of your support, and even more for all of your advocacy for those horses who really need the most help. You are a shining star for horses – we need more people like you!

My best,

Heather
