As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday we have SO MUCH to be thankful for.
On 10-26-21 we brought a starved gelding home when the owners said they could not put weight on him and the local authorities had been out to their house several times and had given them our name. We offered advise on how to feed him to gain weight, but they were more interested in us taking him, so take him we did.
Our friend Lynda, who originally contacted us on 9-20-21, when she saw him while out at a yard sale, named him Silver King and we want to be sure he is treated like a king too.
We started treating him with a Bemer blanket and leg wraps which helps open up blood flow bringing oxygen and nutrients to his digestive system, muscles and everywhere. This will promote better healing as he continues to gain weight and recover. Kellie has been out twice now to treat King and others.
We are finding the Bemer blanket and leg wraps are helping several of the other horses too, including Rimson who has so much scar tissue on his neck he needs constant therapy so it doesn't attach to his growing muscles.
This year again we are participating in GivingTuesday the international day of giving. The Maverick Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation-San Diego, will match up to $5000 in donations to help the rescue and we would like to use the funds raised to purchase the Bemer therapeutic equipment so we have our own to use anytime it is needed. The cost of the Horse-Set is $4990.00 so if we can match the entire amount it will be like getting the Bemer for free. Any donations from now through next week will count. We will have more details on 11-30-21, GivingTuesday too.
Mostly today we just want to share how well King is doing with you. The biggest treat of all is watching him lay down to sleep knowing he will have food to eat when he wakes up and is hungry. He no longer fears being weak and unable to fend for himself. Rest is essential to his recovery and his emotional wellbeing. When we see a previously starved horse finally relax, we know they are on the mend and will continue to blossom as they heal.
We want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and to let you know that we are thankful for the opportunity to bring King to the rescue and help him gain his health back and appreciate all you have done to help him.
HAPPY, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!
