Dr. Grant of West Coast Equine Hospital came out to address Z's neglected teeth, and give him a lameness exam. It seems poor Z has rope burns on his legs, and though he has some healing bumps, bruises, and sore feet, should otherwise be sound.
Z has lovely ground manners, and a beautiful, lengthy trot! He will be a real gem once he's back to full health, which will take some time. Z came to auction off the high stress environment of the feed lot, so bears many scars of that. We will give him time to heal.
Thanks to Karen, Diane, Janet and Randee, we've raised $225 of the needed $470 to pay off today's farrier bill. If you can help us raise the remaining needed $245, please donate through our website -- http://www.auctionhorsesrescue.com/donate.html
