Zeke is doing wonderfully. He has gained about 350 pounds and beat all the odds. He has had his hooves trimmed, been vaccinated and is started training to see what he knows.
Zeke needs your continued prayers please! He is in the very capable hands of Melanie Witherspoon, whom we trust completely. If anyone can bring him through, Melanie can.We did not want to risk having Zeke travel any further in his condition. God willing, Zeke will stay with Melanie at her quarantine facility for a while. Everything that can be done for Zeke is being done. Melanie reports that Zeke is in good spirits, she says he is very sweet and friendly. She said Zeke is eating his Thrive and alfalfa and his digestive system is starting to work again. He is drinking plenty of water so dehydration is not a concern. We are praying Zeke does NOT lay down, because he is far too weak to get up. He needs to gain strength before he can lay down. Zeke's name means, "May God Strengthen." Zeke needs God to strengthen and heal his neglected and abused body. Your continued prayers for his survival are most appreciated. We will continue to update, hopefully with only good news.
This one has us in tears! Not a mini, not a baby, but a young colt who needs immediate help before dying from organ failure from starvation. He isn't even listed on the kill pen page, he was going to be direct shipped to slaughter but a fellow rescuer (Thank you Retta Risley) saw him and asked to give him a price and a chance to live. He is $350. We couldn't look away. Look at his eyes, they say "Help me!"
He will need a ride out of there quickly to a thickly bedded stall and a vet to assess him, a CBC to check organ function and other needs which will be $500+. Transport will be $600 to get him to Melanie Witherspoon's quarantine facility from Stroud. He is too starved and weak to make it to us.
Who can help us save him please? He needs us and Now!! Every dollar helps.
We have received $313.91 so far, please help if you can! Almost enough to pay for him. Transport can pick him up today for $675 if we can get enough $$ in. PLEASE HELP!!
We now have enough for his purchase price but need help to get him hauled out & to quarantine ASAP!!
We must raise $561.04 for his freedom ride. Every donation matters!!
Thank you so much to our amazing ANGEL DONOR who has sent the needed funds for his freedom ride! Quarantine fundraiser is next!
