Cruel "sport" of tripping a horse

This is the poor mare, Oreo, and her filly Hope. It is a wonder either are here. Oreo is the victim of the cruel Mexican rodeo "sport" of tripping. Maybe you have watched the news about the Mexican rodeo sport of tipping where a rider on a horse grabs a calf by the tail and tips it over, often pulling off the tail or breaking bones. Equally cruel is tripping a running horse by tangling the front feet. This is the mare that was rescued by Joan and with excellent vet care the mare was saved and able to deliver this beautiful filly named Hope. Oreo's knee is getting worse and she is finding it difficult to keep up with Hope.

We have a vet, Dr. Dale Rice, who is donating his services to get an X-Ray and do an evaluation.
Don't really have anything more to say. We will report the findings.

Rocky Is On His Way To Clean Feet!

Yesterday I was picking up his feet and noticed that he wasn't moving at all, I got my hoof pick and started to pick. At first he jumped around a little, but after that he took it great! Rocky is definitely on his way to clean feet!!

Rocky's Birthday and Update!!

I am very excited to announce that today is Rocky's birthday he is three months old!! Today the vet checked on Rocky changed his bandage, cleaned his incisions, and said that they are healing great!! Rocky is well on his road to recovery!!

We think that when all the bills are in, this will cost well over 2,000 dollars!! So we would REALLY appreciate any donations!
