Lil Bit has fought long and hard, and it looked like she was getting better every day. Unfortunately, and it is certainly not uncommon, her Mustang Fight and the Will to Survive and Thrive may be outdoing her physical body. She has had many happy times where she ran and played (in her own crippled fashion) and has enjoyed so much life and the best care possible from her mama Shirley Allen.
However, today is the day we find out if she can be saved or keep fighting. We are so very careful how much of the donated funds are allotted to babies who are struggling and fighting the up hill battles. We never just "throw money away" - we look at the whole picture. How many horses do we have to care for. What are the realistic and good odds for this baby. Sometimes we will fight and struggle with a baby who seems hopeless - until you look in their eyes - and they will beat all the odds.
Honey Bandit is a prime example of that. He died 3 times at the veterinarian's office, but came back and today is thriving and happy, although with a couple of minor health issues. He is still kind of a "special needs", but has been an ambassador for the wild horses and made a huge difference in the awareness of our fight for the wild ones.
Honestly it is not looking good for Lil Bit. But we have to give her this last chance, and the vet is coming out today to make that decision. We are not "throwing money away", but making sure we give this baby every chance she deserves based on the mad progress that she has made. To date she has been a little miracle.
We want folks to know where there donations go and that is why we try to keep y'all updated. Honestly we can use a bit of help with today's vet visit, as she needs some tests. But we simply cannot throw her life away after she has improved so much and fought so hard. At the same time we have to keep fundraising for all the other horses and their needs.
We appreciate all the love and support you show for these critters, and we would also appreciate lots of prayers for Lil Bit. God bless and thank you!
