It is 3:09 a.m. and the newest member of our rescue is finally settled in. AMERICA - MEET AND FALL IN LOVE WITH "PRECIOUS". She is another "side-effect" of what happens from the stress of the roundups. Her mama was young, and ended up not having enough milk and "dumping" her baby. PTL the folks were paying attention and brought her in to help her out. We received the call this afternoon and brought her to Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang........... She cannot get up by herself, and although from a distance under all her long hair you cannot tell, she was severely dehydrated and underweight. She is weak, but a fighter. As usual - we need help, prayers, love, support and good energy. Matt and I were truly amazed and SO THANKFUL that she actually made it home alive. She is far away from being out of the woods, and under all that hair is actually much thinner than Mikey & Ikey were. So we are asking y'all to help us with another Miracle Mustang. THANK YOU TO THE FOLKS THAT TOOK CARE OF HER UNTIL WE COULD HELP! BIG HUGS! Let's have another miracle. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Precious is still with us. Just have to figure out how to lift her - for all she is so skinny, she still is heavy to lift. She did well the rest of this morning, having fluids every hour. She is eating and actually drank some of her water on her own. Please keep sending prayers and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Precious is fighting the beginning of a cold? Respiratory infection? So she had her first Vibra VM treatment. Was interesting since she is not even halter trained and from what I understand only had hands on pretty much when she was being lifted or helped to stand up. She did really well. Please say your prayers for her & the rest of the critters. Thanks
Precious is hanging in there. It is such a roller coaster ride with these criticals. I was bouncing for joy (and with my knee that is really something - haha) yesterday because we got her eating her munchies, and then a few hours later she was completely lethargic, with her cold in evidence and looking like she was crashing big time. It really looked like we were gonna lose her. They can crash in minutes, and it is so emotional.
I am anxiously awaiting the point where she tries to help when we pick her up. She does whinny like crazy when she needs to get up and go potty, and she is just the sweetest little thing that ever walked the earth. Trying to get some of that gunk off her today. Although you cannot tell, I brushed her for about half an hour yesterday - but you simply cannot over do too much at once. I know she looks awful, but we brushed her until she got too tired.
