Last Day to honor MT by helping the December Bucket Fund Old Gals: LUCY AND GLORY! (And their Update!)






I know that old horses aren’t a very exciting story… except that they have lived long and have a treasure trove of wisdom.   And like Mama Tess, they mostly have mountains of personality and horsitude underneath the creaky joints and scruffy coats.

UPDATES!

Well, good news all around!  THE GOLDEN CARROT is taking excellent care of our December Bucket Fund Matrons:  Lucy and Glory!  Of course, this totally warms my heart because I see Mama Tess in all older horses.

Lucy, the white mare, had a mystery infection (tested and xrayed but still not certain if sinus, tooth?…) which was treated with a strong antibiotic – and it seems to be working!  The girl has perked up, is excited about life and has eaten up a storm!  She’s gaining weight and life is good again!

Glory is doing much better with frequent, moderate trims.  Her angles are much better and the horrible quarter crack is finally healing!

Poor Lucy, when she arrived, she had a gooey green slime running down from her nostrils - and she was horribly skinny.

This was Lucy upon arrival. As you can see, the infection (as well as neglect) made her unhappy and unwilling to eat.

LOOK AT LUCY NOW!

Here she is this morning! Yes, she's a mudball, but she has filled out tremendously! The round of heavy antibiotics and FOOD have really helped this older mare feel ALIVE again! Thank you, Golden Carrot!

This is Glory... her feed were so bad when she arrived that this old girl spent too much time laying down...

LOOK AT GLORY NOW!

Glory is walking and traveling much more! Her feet look great and she is a very sweet girl. She doesn't even need to be held for the farrier - she loves the help so much!

Glory is walking and traveling much more! Her feet look great – she has farrier appointments often – and she is a very sweet girl. She doesn’t even need to be held for the farrier – she loves the help so much!  Her front right is not clubbed, she is moving and you are looking at the front of her foot.

Glory naps

Here she is – alert and happy! Glory took a nice nap after the rain and the farrier visit today! She is a very happy old gal now.  Look at that youthful face!

CAN WE ADD TO THE BUCKET in honor of my old, lovely gal, Mama Tess?  Any loose change or Starbucks money?  Many thanks!

These old gals haven’t received the same Bucket Fund love of other horses… and I understand that because their story isn’t dramatic.  But, for me, any donation would be a nod to the grand dam, Mama Tess.

I know she would think highly of supporting these gals.

Every cent is tax deductible!
