URGENT HELP NEEDED - ANOTHER CALL - DRY MARE WITH A 10 HOUR? OLD COLT NEED YOUR HELP ASAP! TRAILER ON THE WAY!!
As my heart was breaking into a million tiny pieces, I unloaded Lucky from our trailer into Bev's trailer. After 25 days of literally 24/7 - constant care, our beautiful LUCKY is still with us. He survived so many crashes by the Grace of God!
He has a vet coming today or tomorrow to his new place, and he will be hooked up with a real "horsey Mama" at our friend Bev's. Loading him into another trailer and watching him drive away nearly dropped me to my knees.
My tears had not even stopped when the phone rang. Another 911. This time for a 10 hour old? little foal who has not had a drop of Colostrum and sadly a tiny bit of milk. He/she is on his way with his skinny Mama to see if we can possibly save him. No one knew the mare was pregnant. She is wormy and skinny and losing hair so it is pretty clear he did not get everything he needed in the early stages of his development. Baby is already starting to fail, so he/she will also need lots of prayers.
I have not had a chance to assess Mama or baby yet, but I do know we are looking at some serious 24/7, round the clock care, and some hefty vet bills. He/she will get colostrum as soon as he gets here, and the vet is already on notice that they are arriving. He/she will need his IGG levels checked and very likely a Plasma Transfusion.
We need to stock up on hay, more milk powder, Colostrum etc. _Funds are scarily depleted and I am praying y'all want to step up and help us get the baby and his Mama whatever care they need._ The season is just starting, and as I said, I hadn't even returned from delivering Lucky when the call came in.
IT'S GO TIME, and there is nothing to indicate this year will be any easier than last year. PLEASE DONATE if you can and share. Chilly Pepper has quite a few special needs that have to stay on permanently, and they love their feed, vet care etc.
The babies have gone through nearly ALL the milk. 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. You can also donate to Zimmerman Vet in Winnemucca. 775-623-0981. We have incurred so many bills from this last group of babies, health certs, geldings, tubings, iv's etc.
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 babies have already gone through hundreds of dollars of milk, enemas, meds and supplies.
