Horses like this are some of the most upsetting parts about horse rescue. To add to it, the emaciated puppy we had to bribe out of another neighbor's hands on the way out.. Some parts of this state resemble another world entirely, and the conditions the animals live in equal that of the third world.
Our latest rescue is checked in for the night at West Coast Equine Hospital, with a very low temperature. Re-feeding of frequent small servings of alfalfa hay has begun, based on the UC Davis protocols. A thorough check-up by Dr. Kemper in the morning. Fingers crossed we don't have a "double crypt" stallion on our hands.. Or any other serious complications.
His owners claim this was their "dancing horse." His days of dancing are behind him.
If you can help us with funds to rescue and rehabilitate this emaciated horse, please donate through our websitewww.auctionhorsesrescue.com or direct to the hospital at (805) 386-7151
And we are still seeking a home for the emaciated German Shepherd puppy we rescued on our way out. Two lucky souls saved today.
