A fundraiser dinner to help cover the vet costs for him is being planned for October 2, 2010 and will be held at the facilit. Please make plans to come and see him and enjoy some good food and company. Watch for the upcoming flyer and where you can purchase your tickets.
This little guy was rescued last week and has been through a very traumatic ordeal. While he has not received the best care throughout his life, the most recent event has been the worst. While he was sick with colic his owner sold him to a family that had no idea about caring for a horse, especially not a sick one. Somewhere along the line someone put a hose up his butt to make him go to the bathroom, they walked him, turned him out on fresh green grass. With open wounds all over him with flies embedded, it just became to much for this little guy to take. He went septic and at that time CFH was called to intervene by interested parties.
Within an hour of receiving him into the program the vet was on site evaluating. It was decided that he had a fighting chance however small to make it. We have been working night and day giving him fluids, antibiotics, and pain meds to help fight the raging infection within him, the ongoing fever and with alot of prayers he may just make it. It is day to day right now for this little guy. Please check our website for daily updates on his condition.
If he does survive he will need to have his teeth floated as they are in horrific condition and also will need to be castrated. We are asking for your help in providing this care by sending donations to our PO Box 884, Sierra Visa, AZ 85635.
