IT'S GO TIME - MORE CALLS - INJURED/NEWBORN BABIES! VET IS ON THE WAY - PLEASE HELP NOW! STANDING BY FOR MORE!!
ANOTHER 911 !!
The phone keeps ringing. In the middle of one emergency, we get another.
Sadly, my beautiful boy "Trooper", who came with a dry mare, arrived too late to help. (It was the wrong mare). He lost his life due to starvation and a lack of Colostrum. By the time I got him, there was no hope, although I didn't know it right away. I knew he was fragile, but have to say it was still shocking how quickly he crashed. The internal damage was already done, and he never stood a chance. We got him late afternoon, gave him his colostrum, got him stabilized, he drank his milk and he seemed to be resting quietly. No fever, and by 3 a.m. we were at WSU Emergency Vet Hospital, (3.5 hours away). His short life on this earth was full of pain and sickness. Thankfully once we got him he at least had some pain relief and a full belly. Never ever give anything prior to Colostrum, and it has to be soon, without delay, after being born.
I had not even arrived back at camp when the phone rang. Another new orphan, this time 2 or 3 days old? Brian was dehydrated and horribly constipated. We made it through the night and he is doing better than when he came in. He will see the vet today.
Hours later - (today) - ANOTHER call. 2 more day old babies needed our help.
Vet was just here. Two of the boys are hanging in there; however the 3rd little colt is very fragile, and needs so many prayers. He is on antibiotics and will be monitored 24.7 Like Doc said, they can be fine one minute and crashed the next. So many folks don't realize that they can look "good", but inside it's a different story. These babies are ULTRA fragile, especially when they are only days old.
These critical cases are not only hard, but very expensive. We are still not caught up from the last few rescues and all the vet bills those babies incurred.
These precious boys are going through our supplies quickly. We really appreciate any help. I am currently on stand by for more babies, and right now the focus is to keep these boys alive and get them stable.
Lucky is coming home. Sadly he did not bond with his new Mommy. She adored him, but he simply wasn't interested. We have done hundreds and hundreds of foals, and seen this quite often. When a baby is pushed out by the band, it is usually a terrifying experience, and they often take a long time to see adult horses as safe. He plays horsey games with Tyler, (our mini), and he and the baby Brian will be keeping each other company.
One of these precious babies will get the Mama that would have been Lucky's. She was ultra patient and loving. It will just be a matter of time until Lucky can be comfortable with the big guys.
I couldn't say no to these precious boys. Please help if you will.
Want to say thank you to the folks who helped with Trooper. Such heartbreak, but so grateful his last hours were as they should be. Peace full, a full belly and knowing so much love.
It looks like "the season is HERE!" I can't do it without you. Please help me keep on doing this work God puts in front of me.
So appreciate all of our Chilly Pepper Family!
