BIG GIRL had her hoofers done, but instead of having time to update y'all and send out thank you's and pictures, we are in EMERGENCY BABY MODE!!!!!
DEADLINE FOR PICKUP IN YAKIMA - TOMORROW!!!!!
ONCE AGAIN, THESE BABIES NEED YOUR HELP!
As I sit here writing this, my heart is breaking. We got THE CALL, and now we have to leave at 4 a.m. to save 5 babies whose moms are being shipped straight to slaughter. While we travel the roughly 12 hours (with the trailer) to Yakima, these horses lives will forever change. The babies will be ripped away from their moms, ropes thrown around their necks as they are dragged into a separate pen, all the while scared to death as they hear their moms screaming to them to come away from the danger. The mares will be forced into the truck that will take them straight to the slaughter plant in Canada. Not only will the mares be terrified, hearts pounding and screaming for their babies, the last sounds they will hear from their terrified babies are screams for help. This is abominable, and it has to be stopped.
We are leaving at 4 a.m., and we have FAITH that God will bless this trip, as He has put these babies in front of us.
It will be expensive, as there are "bail fees", blood test, health certificates, meds that will be needed for some or all, and fuel (our truck only gets about 8-9 mpg) when pulling the Rolling Foal Hospital and it is roughly 1100 miles round trip.
One bag of Foal Lac Powder today was $149 ? and that will feed ONE (1) BABY for about 2 weeks. This is not including all the supplies to take care of each and every one. No doubt we will be dealing with upset tummies to say the least, and supplies add up fast. With 6 bottle babies, we will need lots and lots of milk etc.
THIS IS WHY EVERYONE CAME TOGETHER IN MAVERICK'S HONOR AND HELPED US SECURE THE ROLLING FOAL HOSPITAL - SO WE CAN DO WHAT WE DO AND GIVE THESE BABIES A CHANCE AT LIFE. SO IT IS "GO TIME!"
Please help however you can. We need lots of prayers as well as funds for expenses. We cannot save their moms, and they will die a horrific death, but God is giving us the chance to help the babies. We will do everything we can, and with your help, these babies will have a chance to heal and live a happy life.
MAVERICK'S LEGACY WILL ONCE AGAIN BE ON THE ROAD - HONORING HIS MEMORY AND ALL THE OTHER LIVES LOST DUE TO THE HORRORS OF SLAUGHTER.
