The Rewards of Rehabbing

Saving animals requires more than just taking them in and feeding them. Most will have health problems which need to be addressed.

Rusty is a 19 year old Arabian who arrived in April with hoof infections, improperly trimmed feet, rain rot (skin fungus), and was underweight. Penny is a 22 year old Arab X who came with the same problems in June. They both bonded immediately.  I have worked tirelessly to address their skin and hoof infections. They eat as much as they want and get special supplements. I have trimmed their hooves at least every 1-2 weeks. I have gotten some great coaching via email and Facebook from well respected hoof experts, for which I am very grateful.

Penny- same hoof, properly trimmed & healthier

They are now feeling very perky for senior horses.

    It is hard. We are a 501(c)3, I network and spend 8 hours a day on the computer & 8 hours caring for animals with no help. We have > 4,000 Facebook fans, but keeping donations coming in is very hard. Thank you for taking them. Maybe ask for feed donations from local farmers or feed stores?
