Cowboy update - Cowboy is doing wonderfully. He has been getting tiny little corrective trims and treatments on his lil hoofers and it is already helping his hind legs. We still need lots of prayers for this little one, but he is progressing a tiny bit each day.
Lately, he has enjoyed being able to spend most nights with his real mama Lacy.
We were truly blessed to find some inexpensive labor and to get more shelter for the critters here, which ultimately is allowing us to take our 24 x 24 shelter over to where the 55 wild horses (less coming adoptions) are going to be spending their winter. We had no hay shelter to protect the hay and desperately needed one. We also were able to raise enough money to buy roofing materials for said shelter.
Unfortunately we still have a very long way to go in procuring a secure future for the wild ones. Our next project is putting up the shelters, fixing fence and adding additional fencing. Then we need to make sure we fill the hay barn and procure enough hay to make it through the upcoming winter for the group of wild ones in NV.
Fundraising is never easy or fun, but unfortunately very necessary as these horses, although thankful they were "saved from slaughter" actually want to eat every single day. :)
We have good news as the minute BLM found out about the 3 orphans needing the emergency hernia surgery they said thank you for the offer, but they would be happy to pay for the surgeries for the 3 orphans. So that just leaves us with Cowboy, (who is technically not an orphan due to the fact his mama is here), but needs special care so I kind of think of him that way, and Cicero and Honey who are "slaughter babies" (their mama's were killed and slaughtered). Cicero and Honey are ready for their forever homes.
We still have our "special needs" kids here that are here for long term, whether it be health issues or emotional issues, but everyone is doing very well.
As usual, we are staying very active in the community and sharing the plight of our wild horses, as well as bringing smiles to children everywhere, (and grownups too) as they often are able to touch their "first horse ever" as they interact with the orphans. It brings joy to all of us involved, and hopefully we will continue to find loving and safe homes for the orphans that come through our rescue.
