Meet "LUCKY # 5"
Lucky was found wandering alone on the range just hours after his birth. We have no idea whether he was abandoned on purpose due to his health issues, or his band was scared away or something happen to Mama.
He came in with some gurgling sounds and was twitching and shaking off and on. He was given Colostrum immediately, and thus started the journey of Foal # 5.
Lil Red is finally at a point you could call "stable". He crashed so many times it seemed like he had no chance. He went down after he was tubed, nearly into a coma. Then he had to have Doc come out again. He is still having some gut issues, but doing very well overall.
Hunter is also doing pretty well, and the little lamb was adopted out to a wonderful home.
Nicholas, was the 1st baby on this last, very long trip. He went to a very special adopter and is thriving. You can follow him on our adoption page. He and Lucky look like twins except Nicholas is much larger and older.
So now we come to # 5. LUCKY is still absolutely touch and go. He is on all sorts of medications and is making all my hair fall out from worrying about him so much. We had his blood work done, and it is not bad. His IGG levels are good, which means giving him the Colostrum was most likely exactly what he needed. Thank you to everyone who donated so we could afford to have it on hand.
Please keep him in your prayers. Lucky is having all sorts of random issues and his waste still smells like death. I am hoping and praying this is not why he was left alone hours after being born.
We have incurred lots of vet bills, and the babies are loving their milk. They are going through mass amounts and I want to thank the folks who sent it. None of this would happen if it wasn't for y'all.
Our beautiful Appy mare, now know as Lady, went to a wonderful new home this weekend. Today, Hawk, Hidalgo and Bailey (aka CC) arrived at their new homes. So adoptions are going well, although my poor lil heart keeps breaking. It stinks to not be the "best home" for a horse you are in love with LOL.
I have "baby brain", from not sleeping much for the last 4? weeks. I am up all night, every night with these kids, so hopefully this all makes sense. Just wanted to stop between making milk etc. and giving Lucky his meds to say THANK YOU! We couldn't do it without you, and yes, we still need help. Look how much you have accomplished. I cannot even believe what magic happens when we all come together.
God bless and please keep these babies in your prayers!
The babies are going through milk like crazy. ANY help is much appreciated. Anyone who wants to donate directly to vet bills can simply call Harrah Veterinary at 509-848-2943 and donate ANY amount towards our ongoing bills. Just tell them it's for Palomino - Chilly Pepper.
As always, YOU are the ones who keep this going. We are just hitting the busy time and I am praying I get to go home for a couple of weeks. These last 3 babies have already gone through hundreds of dollars of milk, enemas, meds and supplies.
