FIFTY ONE more lives saved!
What started out as a 30 something rescue, turned into a total of 51 mustangs, due to the 18 stallions and the 7 orphans - (Not 5 lol) . By the time we arrived to pick up the last minute orphans, there were 7 instead of the 5 we were called for. But that seems to be the norm.
We have several babies with some injuries to their legs, which will need some pretty intensive care. All of them should be fine hopefully.
Upon arriving back in NV, we also picked up another orphan from our "foal partner - Anna Orchard", who is in pretty rough shape. Thankfully she was able to get her (of course with proper authority) and care for her while we were out of town. She is shown below with her buddy Tia (aka Trailer).
Upon getting back from WA we noticed that "Tia" was not thriving and needed to be pulled immediately. Tia was with Double J whom everyone assumed was her mama. (Our Double J & Trailer duo) However, once DJ started getting her groceries it was very obvious that she was extremely pregnant and way too far along to have a baby this young. Sadly, DJ seemed not to care whatsoever when we pulled the baby, and both of them are doing much better with receiving the appropriate groceries. I was actually really upset with the condition Tia was in. Poor DJ simply could not supply the milk that Tia needed and have a chance to grow a healthy baby.
So now "Princess Felina" has a new best friend and everyone is getting the much needed groceries so they can thrive and be happy.
Matt is out delivering 5 of the mares to their new homes, and bringing back another of the 8 young stallions for our gelding party.
I have to say I cannot believe how amazing y'all were in coming up with the money to save the extra stallions and then the 7 orphans on top of that. So we were able to get everyone vetted and bring them home. Now comes the fun part, ie. gelding, feeding and vetting them all so they can get to their new homes. We need to get this done asap as we are expecting another phone call in the next week or so. Hopefully it doesn't come sooner.
In addition, now we need to cover the costs of feeding a total of 12 orphaned babies. Thankfully the bigger ones only need the pellets and the special feed. As you can see in the picture, Tia and Princess Felina are seriously in need of some extra groceries.
So once again, TOGETHER and by the Grace of God, we have achieved another true miracle.
We will try to get more pictures of these kids on the website, but I have simply not had time to get the info to my amazing Emily so she can get it up there.
If you can help make up the budget for the care of the extra horses or want to help with gelding, feeding the kids or taking care of the babies, it is very much appreciated. I have to say I dread hearing my phone ring lol. Because that next call will come in soon. I so do not want to have to say "no, send the big kids to slaughter and we will take the babies". But it again will all depend on the space available and the funds we have to work with. I was actually ill on the way to WA last time fearing I would fail our hope to "LEAVE NO HORSE BEHIND". But y'all saved every last one!!
