Golf Cart and Fibre Beet

OUR SPECIAL NEEDS HORSES AND A WONDERFUL NEW MATCH GAME!

It seems as if we are constantly asking for help and that isn’t easy for me. But we are a charity which operates solely from donations and grants and we must depend upon help from others in order to make a difference in the lives of our horses. Our golf cart batteries have unfortunately, died…

Our Rescue of Misfits II

Our Rescue of “Misfits”

This is how our day started on Friday. Peggy Sue was down on her bad side and couldn’t get up. When this happens, Peggy Sue doesn’t panic – she just lays there and waits for us to help her. We roll her over and she usually rests for a few minutes and then gets up…

Once Dr. Bess was finished with Billy’s dental examination/ procedure, it was Cricket’s turn. Cricket’s teeth were bad, too, but not as bad as Billy’s. She also has some missing teeth. Cricket had an old injury on the upper eyelid of her left eye. The eyelid had been ripped, likely on a branch or fence. It had not been…

Billys Visit with Dr. Bess

Billy’s Visit with Dr. Bess

     After the mini’s arrival, I noticed right away that Billy was quidding. He could not chew the hay that was on the ground. Although Billy tried to eat, he ended up spitting out balls of semi-chewed food. This alone could make a horse depressed as well as cause weight loss. This is usually caused by issues with the…

Part II Cricket and Billys Happy Feet

Happy Feet and a Reminder to Vote

Cricket and Billy got hooficures on Friday as there was a lot of licking and chewing going on. Both were very good. We really appreciate Stephanie making time to work them into her busy schedule. Look at that precious face. Billy and Cricket’s hooves were a bit long. Billy was off in his back right – due…
