Meet "DAKOTA" - Chilly Pepper's newest critical care child.
I had an emergency intake today. A 911 call from the Trapper to see if I wanted to help an injured colt. The decision had already been made to "destroy the colt", when the trapper heard "I was still in WA".
Is Dakota the real reason I was stuck here for so long? I knew God had a reason, and if I had left for NV as planned, this beautiful yearling would be dead right now. I am so grateful for the call and the chance to save him.
Dakota will most likely need his eye removed due to the amount of trauma. It is horribly injured and he is on pain meds and antibiotics. He will be vetted at the earliest opportunity, and sadly, his care will be spendy to say the least.
God obviously kept me here for a reason, and it was clear to me that I was supposed to be here for Dakota, so of course I agreed.
( I was actually expecting a call for something like this, critically injured or ill. )
However, I am praying hard for a different outcome than we had with my beautiful "Miracle Girl".
Dakota was wild, but is gentling up quickly as he seems to understand we are helping. Mama Mel and Cam rushed right over so we could get him vetted and some pain meds on board. Teamwork makes the dreams work! *So grateful for the amazing folks around me!*
He also has a huge hard lump behind his right leg, which actually concerns me nearly as much as his eye. I am praying it is nothing too serious. At this point he is much more comfortable than when he arrived and is munching his hay and enjoying his pain meds.
Please help this little guy if you can and say a prayer that the infection has not spread too far. Chilly Pepper was obviously not in a wonderful financial position to take on a baby with his needs, but he is here and he is staying with me.
Again, this was a "faith decision". How could I not when it was so obvious that I was not going home on my schedule. I am so grateful to God for all the hiccups or this little man would not be here with me.
When I get these calls, I never know what the injuries will look like or how badly they are hurt. You just get to say "yes or no", so I said "yes"!
Please help me provide the care that he needs. Your love and support are SO APPRECIATED! Thank you to everyone who is helping us get the vehicles back on the road and the horses home safe!
Below: The Pregnant mare y'all saved!!
She came with a baby, but sadly it was not her baby. The filly has been adopted by some wonderful folks who are constantly stepping up to help me when I am up here. So again - a 3 life save!
