Rescue Mission Was Successful
On Monday I was called about a Clydie Mare who needed urgent attention. Her owner loved her very much but due to hard economical times he was unable to provide for her. While on the property it was established that there was also a TB mare needing help. Both mares were surrendered to us and made the journey home. The Clydie mare was really weak and she was given electrolyte paste as well as vitamin shots and she is now going really well. Her eye is badly infected and the vet suspects a SCC which will require surgery, but at the moment she isn't strong enough. She will have her eye removed as soon as she is well enough to have surgery. Ella the Clydie is 17 years old and about 17 hands. Gemmy, the TB mare is 23 years old and about 15 hand. Both and lovely mares with amazing natures. Massive thanks to Cindy and Lori for helping with this rescue and massive thanks to Karen Hood from Heavy Horse Heaven Rescue who put us onto the mares. Massive thanks to my vet Andy at Nerang Equine Practice for coming immediately when we called and for taking such good care of our babies. Massive thanks to Yatala Prodcue for bring food down for Ella, for sponsoring her and offering to home her on their property to retire with Harry and Whiskey once she has been rehabilitated.
Gemmy the bay TB mare is looking for some sponsors. If you would like to sponsor her please email me for more information. It cost $10 per week and last until she is rehomed. When you email please put in the subject of the email "Gemmy" email@example.com
Thank you xxx
