TEXAS TRIUMPH NEEDS URGENT HELP NOW! LUCY SAYS THANK YOU FOR SAVING HER LIFE!
The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:
THANK YOU for being part of our Chilly Pepper Family and for making it possible to save so many lives.
We have yet another URGENT need. Texas Triumph needs urgent care for his hoof. He has a huge split in his front hoof, and it will be life threatening if not treated asap.
When we were at the vet in Reno getting him tubed, they looked at his hoof and thought it was pretty much healed. (At that point his “choke situation” was the focus). However, once we were able to get the farrier working on him, it is clear that the split goes all the way through. It is really a horrible injury and he has a scar running all the way up into his leg.
We need to get immediate care for him, which will involve special shoeing, sedation and maybe even further treatment. With about 2000 pounds standing on that hoof, if it splits more he will be done.
He has some ongoing issues. We were told he had string halt, and he does have issues with his legs. They are random, but when the Farrier was working on his feet he had a lot of trouble in his hind legs while standing. He still cannot eat regular feed, but is actually thriving in spite of his various issues. He is loving life and we need your help to keep him healthy.
Sadly, we are running on fumes. We are still reeling from the over $10,000 in vet bills the last couple months, and that was before we got the 3 new ones. Even with the wonderful donations directly to the vets, the budget was severely devastated.
As we continue trying to prep for babies, we simply need your help to get this done. Texas Triumph has to get this foot repaired or we will lose him.
Our fancy “Lucy” lol, has arrived and is a happy camper. She is bossy and determined to be the lead mare, but has obviously had a horrible life. Thank you for saving her.
Please help us save Texas Triumph’s hoof. He is a precious part of our Sunshine & Smiles program. He is just a baby and deserves the best life he can have. The Vets all told us we could walk out and he could have aspirated into pneumonia or be choked out. But I want to give him every chance and treasure every day he has.
We also need to take in Big Matt and have his hoofers done under sedation. Due to the issues with his back and hocks, it is extremely painful for him to stand on 3 legs.
Please help if you can. It seems like we get the crazy cases, but that is what rescue is about. Helping the ones who cannot help themselves and the ones that nobody else will take on.
You have saved so many lives. Let’s keep on making a difference and saving lives!
Hugs & Love
