Cookie’s Eye – Not Good News

Earlier this year, Cookie appeared to be depressed – she just wasn’t herself. With her history of cancer, well, I was just concerned. Dr. Specht ran some blood work and some values were all over the place. Then Cookie developed chronic imflammation in her left eye and was put on eye medications which didn’t seem…

COOKIE’S EYE – IS IT CANCER?

February 12th, 2017 Cookie’s eye is worse. Dr. Mangan will be checking it tomorrow when he comes to hopefully, remove the lavage from Magic’s eye.

Herd Rescue Effort & Updates on Many

February 7th, 2014 I spent part of the day yesterday with AC discussing the case involving Serenity, Bryce, Persuasion, and Dodger. There were six other horses remaining at the same farm – I met AC there and ended up bringing the two worst remaining mares here (very depressed, tummy ache, very emaciated) and the other…

Haley and Harley Need Prayers – 01/22/12

01/22/12 I’d like to ask for prayers for little Haley and for Harley. When cleaning Harley’s eyes this morning I saw something new in the corner and felt the need to call Dr. Ryan out to look at it. He took pictures back to the hospital – I should hear back from him tomorrow morning….
