FEELGOOD TUESDAY: UPDATE ON NORTHSTAR, THE BURNED HORSE… do you remember him? He was doused with gasoline while in his pasture?


Monday, October 6th, 2014 | Filed under Updates




Do you remember the story of sweet, young Northstar who was doused with gasoline and set on fire while he was minding his own business in his pasture?

Here is the first story we did on his injury: click here.

Here is the second story we ran about the skin grafting process:  click here.

WELL, 2 YEARS LATER, HE IS RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL!

Thanks to all the incredible care from Dr. Blake Roseberry, his wife, Robyn, along with a dedicated staff, Northstar was released and went home in July.

You can read about the NORTHSTAR FOUNDATION here and FB.

I am sure that there were plenty of times that someone wanted to give up the fight… but thankfully, this team of caregivers held onto each other for support and fed off of the spirit of this fighter gelding!

THE BEFORES…

Baby Northstar.   He was born with his owners.  He is part of the family.

INTAKE PHOTOS.

Yup.  He was intentionally doused with gasoline and set afire – while he was safe in his own pasture…  NorthStar’s horrified owners stood by him for 2 years.

ONe of the early intake photos… he was intentionally doused with gasoline and set on fire in his own pasture. His shocked and grieving owners took him to the hospital and stood by his side for two years.

COMING HOME!

I’m sure there is ongoing aftercare and lots of sunscreen and sun sheets applied, but this boy looks alert, happy and fit!  Wahoo!
