My heart is shattered as I write this. Although he fought valiantly and beat all the odds, our beautiful Norman is running free in heaven with his Mama. Sadly, Norman's lungs were permanently damaged and he let me know when it was time to go. He was having seizures and was so weak he couldn't always get up. His knees were buckling over and although his heart was pounding constantly and Doc said it sounded like he was trying to breathe through a straw, he was a happy, playful little boy.
Doc and I both knew it was coming, but that doesn't lessen the devastation. She said he picked the right time. He was starting to suffer and that wasn't fair. That little man lived and loved so fully in his short little life. Thank you for giving him that precious time.
So now IN HONOR OF NORMAN, I want to answer the 911 call I received yesterday. The horses shown are part of one of the worst neglect cases in Idaho. My rescue is not handling the rescue per say; due to the fact that we specialize in wild or unhandled horses, and our success in safely sorting, without injury, the 907 wild ones in South Dakota, I have been asked to come in as a consultant and help get the remaining 46 their Coggins so they can be picked up by their adopters.
This is the 2nd and LAST attempt to get their blood pulled. - WITHOUT COGGINS AND HEALTH CERTS, THEY CANNOT BE ADOPTED and we know what that means. Their lives literally depend on us getting this done!
We need approximately $5000 for this. We have to pull 2 trailers from NV, go to WA, then to Idaho, then back to WA. We are bringing the right equipment to insure this is doable. Fuel is going to be close to $1400? for the two rigs. I have to pay my crew and the folks back home watching the horses in NV. We are also going to be on this project for possibly 5 days, if not more.
Thank you as always for all the love and support. I still need help to give our precious rescues the care and love they need. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING PART OF OUR FAMILY AND FOR SAVING SO MANY LIVES!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN HELPING SAVE THESE PRECIOUS LIVES!
