Life in the world of rescue changes by the second. We got the call again, but this time it was confirmed, we needed to come pick up another Six Slaughter Babies.
So we are on the way as I write this These kids are in tough shape and have been through the wringer. Left alone in a trap for a day or more, all six were trying to nurse on a dying mare. In spite of the best efforts of the folks we work with, the mare passed. So we are left with six little souls who need us badly.
I will post pictures as soon as I am able.
DOUBLE J TRAILERS in Woodland (and also in Albany, OR) donated a hay rack for the Rolling Foal Hospital. They installed that and the much needed fridge at no cost for labor and only charged us their costs on the fridge. As we travel as inexpensively as possible, (camping whenever possible and cooking most of our meals to save funds), not to mention bringing easily $1000 + of Colostrum and other medicines and emergency supplies for these little ones that must be refrigerated, a fridge is pretty essential.
Y'all have already saved lots of little lives this year, and we are so very grateful. But this baby season is just starting and we can't leave any behind. So as long as God keeps putting them in front of us, we will do our best to save them. We so appreciate all of you who are part of this and make it all possible.!!
I am sorry the links have not been working properly, they are supposed to be fixed. Thank you for your patience :)
We want to thank everyone for being part of saving all of these lives. It means the whole world to each and every horse that we save, and although we can't save them all, we are grateful for all the lives we do save because of folks like you and your love and support.
