** Please Note ** - We have almost no history on these horses. Some of them appear to not even be halterbroke and some are obviously older but generally we have no idea as to age, temperament, or training. We know the fellow had not ridden for many years so even those that may have been broke to ride would need to be restarted. The older horses will required dental care and they all have probably not been dewormed, trimmed, or vaccinated in a while, if ever. Any information noted is anecdotal only.
We also saved 7 lives on Thursday that were on their way to the slaughter plant. Mike drove 4 hours to the impound lot and arrived there just before they were to ship. the new additions:
Another of our recent intakes is a pretty little mare, Buttercup. She is looking for a new home now.
We got the Cushings test results back and all three were positive so Mugsy, Jigger and Brandy are now on pergolide. That makes 6 the total number of our horses with Cushings!
Eddie has been diagnosed with coronary band dermatitis, a form of scratches, so we'll start treating that in the hopes we can get it under control.
Our truck fundraiser is doing great, we're at over $5,000! Thank you everyone for going above and beyond, we know how hard it is to put funds aside for something as mundane as a truck, when feed, hay, vet, and lives at stake take precedence.
