On our way home from South Dakota. Matt and I just picked up 6 more horse kids yesterday from ISPMB. (meet the kids at the bottom of this post)
Karen, Matt and I deliberately picked out the thinnest ones and the ones who need the most help, as obviously those are the ones who need the critical care. These kids were just sorted out so they could get special care.
We have already spent over $300 yesterday getting Coggins and Health Certs. (Not to mention getting here lol, and I imagine the trip home won't be free lol)
We have the vet scheduled for Tuesday, but we have 6 colts to geld, including the 2 starvation studs from last month and we picked up 4 more stallions this time. ALL of these kids need immediate help for their little hoofers and some of them need groceries right away.
We appreciate ANY HELP ANYONE WANTS TO GIVE, as we are looking at a huge vet bill. None of these kids have had any vaccines and everyone needs wormed etc. The bill for the colts will be around $1200 ($200 for each) gelding, and the hoof trims and being dropped for 5 was nearly $1000 last time, and we we have to do 6 this time.
One of the babies needs some attention by the vet to her eye so the bill could easily be from $3000 - $4000 + with vaccines etc and eye care,
We simply do not have the funds for all of that especially after the trip and paying for someone to care for the rescue while we were gone. Dee is amazing and we pay him a small amount considering how much time he spends and all the work he does. But talk is cheap and rescue ain't. LOL
So please make sure we can get these kids the help they need right away. This is supposed to be our "down time" lol, and we certainly are getting "run down", but this is an emergency situation so we are doing the best we can. We can save more if folks want us to, as long as we have funding. There are over 800 horses and Karen needs to place 400 in her "best case scenario". But no matter the outcome, there are so many needing homes that we can't just sit and whine about what is happening. The best we can do is what we are doing. Actually help whatever horses we can. And WITH YOUR HELP, we will all make a difference.
