Thursday, October 28, 2010

It is a beautiful day in Southern Nevada this morning and we are one day closer to Electra's surgery.

The surgery is not an emergency, but a surgery that will correct the tiny flaw of an Umbilical Hernia. She came into this world, not knowing the suffering that so many of our equine friends have endured, her mother included in this poor treatment.

Charity is a rescued PMU Mare who suffered on the line, providing urine for human HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy). Charity was rescued by long time FOBs from the TWR days, along with four other PMU mares in foal.

Unfortunately, we lost Nellie and her foal after Emergency surgery. Nellie made it through the surgery, but many Draft horses suffer from EPSM

and this is what happened to Nellie.

Then there was our Faith who passed in her sleep, three weeks after we weaned Justice. She had been seen and was under Dr. Hadland's care prior to her passing but he was unable to determine what the problem was even after all blood panels had been taken. Life and Death..we just never know, even with all of our technology.

As you can tell Faith had improved considerably during her time with us. This was prior to giving birth to Justice.

Then the miracle of life above.

I know that I have gotten off topic, but I guess what I am trying to say is a very special thank you to each of you, for standing in our horses corners, and aiding in their feed, vet care and all the other needs they may have. Thank you!

and we now have Electra who is seeking help, so we move forward with a huge thank you for your pledges on her behalf.
