Blue Needs Your Help!

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Help Blue Step Into His New Future!

Blue is a young mustang gelding out of Nevada who came to AAE after Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund and Virginia Range Wild Horse Sanctuary asked for assistance with this handsome guy. He had a large mass over his rear fetlock/pastern area, and was unhalterable when he arrived at AAE.

He made great progress getting ready for his initial veterinary evaluation (exam, radiographs, and biopsy) resulted in a positive outlook. The bone in his fetlock area looked good and a biopsy confirmed the growth to be granulation tissue (proud flesh). However, due to the size of the mass, healing was expected to take considerable time.

We started working on gentling and desensitizing Blue to get him comfortable with his legs being handled for post-surgical care (treatment and bandaging). However, he experienced a set back with what we initially thought was a reaction to something (e.g. fly spray, a weed, a bite, or some other toxin) and required additional diagnostics, treatment and healing before we could move forward with surgery.

Blue made great strides with accepting humans and allowing his leg to be handled. Understandably, he was very sensitive with anything near the “blob”.  His surgery was successfully completed on Wednesday, August 23. Due to the size, nature, and location of the surgery, he will need long term bandaging and care for best healing results. We are anticipating needing lots of bandaging materials, post-op care, and likely the use of sedation in early visits to ensure safe handling.

Goodbye, Angus, we miss you already!

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Fortunately, at AAE, we have more happy days than sad.  Yesterday was one of the really sad days. We said good morning and goodbye to Angus for the last time.  Angus was a big, enormously handsome, genuinely kind, 21-ish Shire gelding.  He introduced our volunteers and guests to the true gentleness of these giant horses.  He also introduced us to true horsey farts and horsesy slobber!  There was no mistaking an Angus toot (it was as big as he)!

Angus came to us in early 2016 with a lot of needs, but a lot of life to live and love to give.  He was battling chronic uveitis in both eyes, he had chronic progressive lymphedema (CPL), and a big arthritic knee.  One eye was beyond treatment, and it was removed to prevent ongoing pain and further injury; thankfully, his remaining eye responded well to treatment. We treated his CPL, and it was managed with regular care.  His knee responded well to antibiotics and a little rest.  Who knew he had a bad knee?  He wasn’t quite as good as new, but he was much, much improved.  With lots of love and TLC, Angus was feeling good and loving life, and he was adored by all of our volunteers, but mostly by his bestest friends, Kasey and Linda.  Kasey was his eyes in darkness, and showed him the way.  The two were buds in the truest sense of the word.  Linda took special care to make sure Angus was a big, happy guy with all of his needs met, and he showered her with love…. and slobber.  They shared a special bond that only the luckiest of people and horses get to experience.

Update: Lil’ Orphan Filly

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Our sweet little one is still moving in the right direction. She has made substantial improvement in her whole 10 days of life. Her first lab results for a muscle enzyme showed her values were off the charts. Normal is 800, and upon intake she was at 120,000, the highest level the equipment could read.  As of yesterday, her muscle enzyme levels and other blood levels were within normal range. She is still weak and unable to get up on her own, which is not uncommon, but once she’s helped to stand, her mobility is MUCH improved !!  Thanks to her docs at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center, her hospitalization is winding down, and she will be home soon, but she has a long rehab/recovery to come and she’s not out of the woods by far.  To say her journey has been a rollercoaster ride is an understatement, but we thank you all so much for your support and assistance with this little gal.

Donate today!

In the hustle and bustle of our busiest time of year, we have a critical case, an orphan filly that was not only rejected by mom, but reeling from the effects of mom’s rejection, malnourishment and selenium deficiency, topped of by stress of transport and dehydration.  She needs your help!

We go the call yesterday (4/5), a plea for assistance with an orphaned foal who was just a few hours old. She had been rejected by mom and needed help.

Big Day of Giving

0

The following post comes from All About Equine Animal Rescue.

On May 3rd, we are asking you to participate in another huge and historic event for our region, the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, Placer Community Foundation and Yolo Community Foundation bring you the BIG Day of Giving.  This is a 24 hour event that begins at midnight on May 3rd. Once this starts, All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. (AAE) will join with over 500 other nonprofits to raise $6 million, engage 30,000 donors, and make our region #1 as the most generous community in the country on this national day of giving!

As many of you know, All About Equine strives to support and further our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming abused, neglected, and/or abandoned horses and other animals, as well as those in the auction/slaughter pipeline.

This year, with your support, our goal is to engage at least 200 donors and raise $10,000 to satisfy our $10,000 matching funds requirement for our very recent expansion grant award from the ASPCA!   This grant was awarded to help fund a covered roundpen (small covered arena) for operating year round training and program activities providing protection from the rain and hot summer sun.

We are less than 2 days away, and we are asking you to help us on this historic day to meet this goal. Invest in All About Equine as we further our mission and expand programs for our community including our youth, seniors and veterans.

I am writing to ask you to take five minutes on May 3rd to give to All About Equine Animal Rescue.  You can donate using this link: Big Day of Giving – All About Equine. Looking for a reason to be proud of our region?  Just log onto www.bigdayofgiving.org and watch the total number and value of donations climb.  Give and be a part of the most generous community in the country by raising $6 Million!

How you can help on May 3rd:

  1. Make a donation (starting as small as $25) to All About Equine Animal Rescue at Big Day of Giving – All About Equine.
  2. Spread the word. Tell your friends, post on Facebook, and tweet about it. This is an opportunity to be part of something really big. Help us get there.

Your donation of any amount will help assure that All About Equine receives the $10,000 grant funding from ASPCA.  Be a part of the $5 Million giving community and help us improve our community by joining with others on May 3rd for a BIG Day of Giving!
