WARRIOR’s – Update. We are making progress, but still not out of the woods. He & all the kids at Chilly Pepper need your help! Winter is coming.
The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:
Some of the pictures are graphic. What we are dealing with is beyond horrific. However, this young horse acts like he is all that, never mopes around, and is enjoying hanging out with his friends. It is still a life-threatening injury. You can clearly see the improvement. I apologize if it upsets anyone. Believe me it’s not easy treating him every day. I am just sharing how serious his injuries are.
We are back in WA, and Doc came out to see him. I love our vets, and they are, and have been since day one, on the exact same page about his treatment.
Warrior is healing wonderfully on the outside. He is also still suffering from a great deal of trauma inside. I pulled out the piece of bone shown above a day or two ago.
The funds raised in the gofundme and other donations were amazing, but they are long spent, and it didn’t begin to cover his medical. They basically covered getting him to NV, me paying the folks who ran the rescue in WA while I was in NV, and to get us home safely to WA. We barely touched the vet bills, and he already has another one up here.
The GOOD NEWS is that Doc was pretty ecstatic about the way his head looks,especially considering the way it looked in the beginning. He has been on constant medication, and the stuff he is on now is about $300 a bottle, and we are on the 2nd one already. He is also on another antibiotic, probiotics, good feed etc.
He still cannot eat grain, and we believe it is because of an injury on the side of his jaw, so I soak them 1st, and then he can eat it just fine.
i need to keep him on the antibiotics until I quit getting chunks of bone out of his head.
There is so much infection. Somedays it is so heartbreaking as more and more pus comes from new and various areas. It’s a rollercoaster for sure, and sometimes it just seems like it’s too hard.
Doc said don’t change anything and keep doing exactly what I have been. She also said the fact that pus is NOT coming out of his nostrils is a very good sign as well,
So far he is a miracle, and I am praying he keeps it up. There are times when he doesn’t seem to know where he is or what he is doing. Hopefully the swelling by his brain will go away and he will be ok. He is a long way from out of the woods, but we are Better than 50/50 now. PTL!
We need more hay in NV and WA, and I came home to 2 more horses who were dumped right before winter.
There are so many behind the scenes costs that all rescues face. Brand Inspections, health certificates, and yes, he needed a second one. The utilities, the fuel, the supplies, the costs for rescue are endless and so expensive. Warrior still needs clay every day, shots, special feed and supplements and there are just so many needs.**
THANK YOU for the care packages for Warrior. I used the needles today. Y’all are amazing and I hope we can keep going.
Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to help him. We need lots of prayers, as well as funds for the everyday costs of doing what we do.
THANK YOU for saving him and giving him a chance. I know for sure, no matter what happens, he is getting so much love and is so obviously enjoying being loved.
Here is a link to a video if you would like to see what we do every day. Sadly, I have to give him lots of shots, but those are NOT in the video, in case you don’t like needles. You can copy the link and join us for a close-up experience of his journey. One is during treatment and the other is brushing him for the 1st time ever.
First time he feels a brush.
I appreciate any help and especially prayers for this beautiful soul.
