At 15.2 hh and 727 lb, this emaciated 3 yo stallion came to Mike's Auction, after being picked up for free off Craigslist. With the help of auction staff, we were able to transport him direct to West Coast Equine Hospital to work on immediately stabilizing his condition.
Today, the newly christened "Wesley," was given the all-clear to come home!
From here on out, Wesley will be slowly brought back to weight by refeeding cautious, frequent feedings of alfalfa hay and alfalfa pellets, as was done for Chiron and Eclipse before him.
Wesley, like Chiron, has a long road ahead of him til he will be healthy enough for gelding surgery. If you would like to help with donations toward his veterinary, farrier, and feed bills, please donate direct to West Coast Equine Hospital at (805) 386-7151 or through our websitehttp://www.auctionhorsesrescue.com/donate.html -- and please mark as donating toward "Wesley.
