We have a new rescue

This is Bella, she is a 10 year old TB mare who is in poor condition and very weak. Bella's blood test show they she is chronically anemic, has low white blood count and that her liver is really struggling. We have put her on 5 small meals per day, an iron supplement called “Blud”, a herbal blend to help heal her gut, boost her immune system and help her body to heal itself. She is also on antibiotics and will have 2-3 courses to try and kill the infection in her body. After the antibiotics she will go on a course of omaguard as well and she is having vitamin B shots along with rosehip for vitamin C. She isn’t in a very good way at the moment but slowly she is getting better and I have really noticed the difference in just 3 days. Bella is also having an essential oil massage twice per day which she loves.

Bella is currently looking for some sponsors, if you’re interested in helping support Bella through her rehabilitation for only $10 per week please email me using the subject “bella” and ill email you all of the details.

Day With Paul Sparrow From Precious Pet Photography

We had some beautiful photos taken by Paul Sparrow from Precious Pet Photography for our charity calendar. Paul did an amazing job and I'm still not sure which ones to use for the calendar but here are a few for everyone to see. They are so beautiful and I'm extremely happy with how they turned out. Paul is a wonderful man and a very talented photographer.

Massive thanks to Paul for donating his time especially in a Sunday. xxx

Another trip to Manly Road Horse Hospital

First of all I want to thank Pauline Gaven and the staff at Manly Road Horse Hospital for fitting Jet and Ella in and for taking such good care of them while they have surgery. Whiskey and Chicky both had surgery at Manly Road and they are both going so well.

Jetty went down with an eye ulcer on the 24th of July and after 6 weeks of treatment it just wasn't getting better. Sadly his eye is pretty bad and it cant be saved so this week he will be having surgery to remove his eye. The good news is that for his age, his good eye is really healthy with no cataract so he will cope just fine.

Ella arrived 3 weeks ago tomorrow and it was established during her first vet check that she had a Squamous Cell Carcinoma on her third eye lid. Pauline saw her today and the good news is that she will only lose her third eye lid and not her whole eye.

So it has been a bitter sweet day all in all but at least both horses can be treated and will still live long full lives.

Massive thank you to Pauline Gaven, Manly Road Horse Hospital and Cindy Bickerstaff for all of their wonderful help today.

If you can help out with our huge surgery costs please make a tax deductible donation, no amount is to small, ever $2 adds up. Thank you all so much xx
