An update on one of our April BUCKET FUND BABIES: GOLIATH!






Do you remember in April when we helped save 5 wild babies on the Virginia Range through LRTC?

Well, one of those babies was Goliath.  He was born in the wild but could not stand.  His mother was desperate.  Onlookers called LRTC.    It was dark when they reached Goliath and they were out of time to save Goliath unless they left right away.  So they put him in their SUV and drove like crazy to bring him to the equine hospital.

Goliath made it through the night, so the LRTC team went back out to find his dam and bring her in as well… but they couldn’t find her.

So, Goliath became a beloved resident at LRTC where his severely contracted tendons and problematic growth spurts have weakened his pasterns.  However, he has recovered Leaps and Bounds.

Goliath is a pure joy to all who work at LRTC.  They describe him as delightful.  He is smart, funny, goofy, willing, brave and a Baby Huey (huge).  He has the run of the place and each day is a bright and shiny adventure!  Every one of the rescuers has dozens of videos and numerous photos of Goliath at all times.  They adore him.  He has stolen ALL of their hearts.

Tonight, I asked Willis if he had any photos or videos of Goliath, and he immediately sent over 6 movies and dozens of pics.

Did I mention that Goliath is HUGE, hence his name (and some of his medical issues).  He is only 7 months old but he is as large as a 2 year old colt!

Goliath is very well loved.

HERE WE GO!

He has to know what is going on at all times…

He can open doors…

He here is, visiting a full grown horse LOOK at how tall this 7 month old colt has grown!!

Yuup. I’ve had colts like this…

He sleeps in every morning. LRTC wakes him up for breakfast.

NOVEMBER BUCKET FUND EMERGENCY: Have you heard about the medicinal tea made from donkey hides?! LET’S HELP THESE WOMEN WHO SAVED 50+ DONKEYS (IN ONE DAY) FROM THIS FATE IN TEXAS!






She bought ALL of the donkeys in the kill pen.  More than 50 of them.

Why?  She wanted to save these donkeys from being shipped over the border to the Chinese donkey tea trade.  What is the donkey tea trade?  …  In China, there is a popular trend that ‘tea made from donkey hides’ is considered a cure-all.  This is real.  You can read a CNN article here.  You can read a Newsweek article here.

Now American donkeys are being harvested through kill buyers at meat auctions near the borders.

DISGUSTING. HORRIBLE.  AND THESE DONKEYS WERE GOING THERE.

Suffice it to say that their deaths are horrible.  It has been reported that 20% of the animals die on the way to slaughter, the trade conditions are that bad for these poor beings.  Pure evil.

This is very real in America, as our donkeys are being harvested.   All Seated in a Barn rescue is stepping up to do what they can, saving 50 donkeys from one Texas auction alone.

All Seated in a Barn Rescue needs three more shelters to house these donkeys – and funds to feed them through winter.  Can we help?!
