DALTON, KING of the babies!


Thursday, November 4th, 2021 | Filed under Annie, Dalton




As you know, Dalton is in training with Gillian Larson.  And, now Annie is with Gillian, too!  Dalton and Annie are side by side in their respective paddocks.

Annie and Dalton. The Bigun and the Littleun

Today, my friend Shelly and I went to see both Dalton and Annie.  It was a great day… especially watching the babies interact with both Dalton and Annie.

You see, Gillian has 3 long yearling Morgan fillies.  They are adorable (you know I love Morgans)!  All they do all day is act like baby horses… they run up the hills, learn about terrains, roll, bite each other and ask humans for love.

Uncle Dalton gets turned out with the fillies every day after he has his lessons.  This works out perfectly because Dalton can run with the girls on the upper 30+ acres (and he is still bigger than they are – for a while anyway).  They run up hills and canyons… frolic and play!  This kind of activity is perfect for a silly gelding like Dalton!

Inside the babies’ feeding pen is a very large round pen.  This is where Gillian trains when she needs an arena.  Today, we brought both Dalton and Annie to the arena.

Dalton is turned loose with the babies and is watching them greet Annie who is being led by Gillian towards the round pen.

Annie has a proper introduction to the babies from the round pen.

This was just after a huge squealing session…

This is Shelly… The babies were mobbing her, pulling on her boots, shirt, pants, hat… She loved it!!

Dalton cannot believe that these babies get away with such behavior!! We watched Dalton go through his paces (I forgot to take pics!) and he is going very nicely! Once he is ready, we are going to train him bitless because we think he will like that better.

This is HORRIBLE. PLEASE HELP our November Bucket Fund horses: Andre and Phoenix! Please SHARE.






I’m going to tell you that this will make you very angry… that someone could neglect these horses and drop them off with a horse trader who took them to the auction IN THIS CONDITION.

One has a huge necrotic bubble on it’s rump.  The other, a huge swelling necrotic mass on its leg.

Both of these horses are fully aware, eating drinking, etc…  They are still with us, they’ve made it this far.  We have to help them if they are able to be helped.

PLEASE let us right this wrong.  Let’s help All Seated in a Barn give these horses the medical attention needed.

WARNING:  The first photo is hard to see… and the following photos are a bit worse.   I’m not even sharing the worst shots…  But we HAVE TO HELP.  We have to know this kind of thing happens and we must right this wrong.

ALL DONATIONS ARE 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE.  Thank you in advance!

I blurred this to make the image more palatable… however these horses have huge, weeping wounds. One on the rump and one on the leg. (Andre is the tall one on the left. Phoenix is the one with the rump wound.)

 

THE STORY… so far.  (warning:  somewhat graphic photos below)

These geldings had been dropped off to the auction by a horse trader.  There are no papers, no history.  No owner of record.

All Seated in a Barn purchased these horribly wounded horses for $350 each and immediately brought them to the hospital.  (The flies on these wounds were like a carpet of black.  Horrid.)

Blood was drawn, samples taken and they are awaiting results.  The Dr. wants to do surgery on Phoenix (rump – massive, necrotic, weeping wound) next week once they can stabilize him.  If the issue is an abscess, the fear is that it has gone to his spine.  But for now, he is doing very well, so they are hopeful.

(I asked the vet if it was a cougar attack and she didn’t think this was animal related…)

Andre’s leg wound is a mystery as well.  They do not know what they have.  Test are happening and we may know later today.

PLEASE PLEASE HELP AND SHARE!  All donations are 100% tax deductible!  Thank you!!

Huddled at the auction

So skinny, neglected and miserable. WHO WOULD DO THIS?!

At the hospital. They don’t know what this is… I asked if it was a cougar but the vet thinks not. She thinks it is some sort of abscess.

This is Andre’s leg after being cleaned at the hospital. Again, they are running tests because they are not sure what this is… clearly de gloved.  Horribly swollen and painful.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU – PLEASE SHARE
