Rimson & King. Can you help this #GivingTuesday?

Silver King out for a walk 11-29-21

Hello, Everyone!

King continues to do better every day. Since his arrival on 10-26-21, he has gained 168 pounds and we consider him half way to his goal weight 1,050 which we anticipate will take two more months.


Bemer Therapy Blanket and leg wraps

He started receiving therapy with a Bemer blanket and leg wraps on 11-11-21, as did several of the other horses. This electromagnetic blanket and wraps help increase the circulation bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and tissues in his body to help him recover.

Rimson has scars throughout his neck

Rimson is also receiving Bemer therapy. When he was attacked by a cougar at 6 days old he sustained horrendous injuries, bites to his neck. It is a miracle he survived. Those injuries have left him with huge scars and scar tissue that has required massage therapy weekly to prevent the scar tissue from adhering to the muscles as he grows. We can use the Bemer leg wraps on his neck to help alleviate that adhesion.

Giving Tuesday

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.

Hoover, teenager with arthritis in his front legs

Hoover has high ringbone on his front legs (arthritis) so the increased circulation helps reduce some of his pain.

20211115 Trooper

Trooper, 21 yr old quarter horse

Trooper is being ridden again after three years of being a pasture pet and the Bemer helps relax his muscles after a training workout.

20211117 Sonny

Sonny had an abscess in his right front hoof. Before and now that the abscess has drained we helped relieve his pain with Bemer treatments.

We know there are SO MANY worthy charities all asking for funds on this #givingTuesday and we appreciate so much any funds you would consider donating to us. Since our last email we have received donations and are almost half-way to reaching our $5000 matching funds. We are hoping with your help we can reach our goal.
