Zena Is Home!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Thanks to you, Zena is home and recovering! We are grateful! Zena came home to AAE yesterday after a nine-day stay at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center. She went in for treatment last week for a large, deep ulcer her right eye. She has also been treated for uveitis in the left eye, and while at the clinic, they found a pinpoint-sized ulcer on the left eye. On Saturday morning, we got the call that the eye with the ulcer ruptured, and before long, Zena had surgery to remove her right eye. Fortunately, the ulcer in the left eye resolved quickly! We're happy she's home, and we hope she's happy to be back with her AAE family. We're not sure! Well, she's her big, beasty self, but she seems a bit nervous and agitated. She'll settle in and adapt soon. Losing vision is not something anyone wants to experience. Fortunately, horses can do very well with one eye. Many of you remember Ralphie, and some even remember Angus? Zena will get better, so continue to send more of your healing energies her way. Heartfelt thanks to all that have donated and shared in support of her treatment and care costs, and now surgery costs. Thank you for helping us Donate, share, follow!

This event will feature a BBQ dinner, DJ music, and live, silent, and dessert auctions. We hope you will be able to join ...

Another Update On Our Sweet Zena

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: We got some not so good news this morning. Zena's right eye, the good eye, lost the battle with the ulcer; her right eye ruptured. As a result, she needed surgery to remove the eye. Fortunately, everything went well, and she'll be coming home soon. We will be happy to have her back at the barn soon to help her adjust to a new world. Her left eye is doing much better and will likely require ongoing treatment for uveitis. Fortunately, uveitis can me managed long term if it doesn't resolve. Please send Zena some healing thoughts! Need to catch up on Zena's health situation? Read about it here. Thank you to the supporters who have already donated towards her care. We are so grateful for our community! If you're able to help with her surgery and additional care costs, Zena and everyone at AAE would appreciate your support. Donate, share, follow! Donate to Support Zena We can’t do this without you!

QUICK UPDATE ON MARE & THIS MORNING’S CALL! 8 MORE BABIES – CAN WE SAVE THEM?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: NOT EVEN TIME TO GRIEVE the loss of my little Jackpot. It's GO TIME! THIS MORNING'S CALL- ANOTHER 8 (YES EIGHT) BABIES NEED US TO SAVE THEM. WILL YOU HELP ME DO THAT? Thank you SO MUCH for helping with these rescues. We have almost enough to pay off one of the smaller vet bills or to buy supplies. Like everything, the ENTIRE costs of rescue, fuel, bail, medical supplies, milk, etc. have gone up substantially. I have a couple of days to let him know if I will be able to afford to save the babies. That means vet bills paid (or hopefully mostly paid), and much needed milk & supplies purchased and restocked. THERE ARE MORE COMING AFTER THE 1ST GROUP! Let's save these beautiful lives! Off to sterilize the nursery and be ready for the new ones if we can afford to save them. Quick update - The mare's leg was much worse than I was told, although it wasn't too surprising after seeing it. She is the ONLY horse out of 1000's that I have ever seen "AIM" when she kicks. I know that is only because of prior handling and her fear. She has not one mean bone in her body. It's pretty clear it had to be painful when I was treating her. She is such a nice, although terrified, mare.

MIRACLES & HEARTBREAK. BADLY INJURED, PREGNANT MARE! & A STALLION WITH A BROKEN LEG NEED US NOW!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: THE NEED IS ENDLESS, while funds are not! _My heart is once again in a million pieces. Doc was just here and we had to set Jackpot free from his suffering. He fought so hard! "Bart", the beautiful stallion, is also at peace. When he ran his leg would flop around. He was suffering horribly and now he is finally pain free in Heaven! Again, I acted on sheer Faith as I still need to pay for him etc. I know you would want me to end his suffering. This has been the most horrible rescue I have ever been on. Whatever it is that is out there has taken a huge toll on these precious lives. _26 babies total, 2 lost to internal injuries they came in with. 6 lost, (including Jackpot) at our various ICU nurseries to a deadly virus. So far none of the tests are showing exactly what it is. There were thoughts it could be Salmonella, but tests on one of the babies showed no. However, it did show an unknown pathogen. There have been outbreaks of Salmonella in 6 states, and tests are still being run to find out the exact issue. These newborn or week old babies have zero to fight with._ In spite of being under CONSTANT vet care, receiving fluids, tube feedings, 2 shots a day and oral meds twice a day, there was nothing else we could do. My team & I are beyond devastated. Whatever it is, the babies will be playing, running, eating and looking like the picture of health. Sometimes as soon as 2 days later they are gone. I had to stop my update and take care of the stallion & the injured mare Chica. I am running on complete faith, as ...

Update on our ol’ girl, Zena

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Time for another Zena update! To recap, if you didn't catch last week's email, Zena, our 26-ish year old Percheron mare, has been experiencing eye issues. She's been experiencing chronic uveitis in her left eye. It has been managed with meds/treatment, but not resolving. It is very painful! A couple weeks ago, she developed a large and dangerously deep ulcer on her right eye, which is also very painful! Sadly, this put her vision at risk. After several days of treatment, the ulcer was not improving, so she was hospitalized at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center for a procedure to support her right eye and to provide treatment every two hours. During an exam, a pinpoint-sized ulcer was also found on her left eye. More frequent treatment did not improve the right (good) eye, so on Friday, Zena had a procedure called a Tarsorrhaphy. I can't say it, but it's a surgical procedure in which the eyelids are partially sewn together to narrow the eyelid opening to protect the cornea and keep it moist. (If you zoom in on the photo of Zena above and look closely, you can see her sutures) However, it's not without risk! The dilemma is, it provides good protection, but the ulcer is covered and not visible to monitor. The sutures will be removed in a few days to see how the eye is progressing, but thankfully so far, so good. The other good news, the ulcer on the left eye has resolved, but sadly, the uveitis flared again, so she'll continue with treatment of the left eye, too. Zena is expected to stay at LBEMC for at least a few more days. Thank you to the generous donors that have helped support some of the costs for her care. As ...

For the love of the horse, you came together…❤️

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: For the LOVE of the HORSE, you came TOGETHER! Because of your generous donations, opens, shares, positive thoughts, and simple kindness, you raised over $22,000 to help make a better world for horses. "Thank You", those two little words that mean so very, VERY much! ZENA UPDATE! Zena is undergoing another procedure today to protect her eye while she tries to heal. The ulcer in her right eye is dangerously deep. Vision in her left eye is already at risk due to uveitis, so we need to do what we can to make sure the "good" eye is able to heal. One of the surgeon's at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center will suture her eyelids partially closed to protect her eye and keep it moist. As with all procedures, there are risks, so this big girl needs some healing thoughts her way. Thank you all for making this possible for Zena. If you missed the opportunity to give big yesterday, you can still help Zena by giving today. Donate BOOTS IS BACK!!!
