I am exhausted from my trip, the long drive home,and a late night last night! So I will give some quick updates, but tomorrow I will go more into details about all the weekend's adventures.
Great news- Soot can come home tomorrow! He is still not feeling one hundred percent, but the vet thinks we can pick him up Monday morning (if nothing changes). His intestine was damaged by his impaction, but did not rupture. It will take a while of eating soft foods, daily oil in the feed, and quiet rehab time to bring him back to help. It really is a miracle that he survived.
Little Sunday and Sitka will also be coming home, Sunday is now so rambuncious that it takes two people to treat his eye! That's a great sign! I will be paying for their care and clinic stay with the Sitka and Sunday Fund, huge thanks to everyone who supported these guys!
I will have updates and pics of all these guys tomorrow.
Well, another unannounced horse (pictured below) was brought to Shiloh this morning. A man pulled up and told everyone at the rescue that he "had a horse he got from a "tweaker" in Pahrump and now needs to give us the horse or he will either dump it in the Desert or take it out and shoot it." Can you believe these people? Of course, we took the horse into the rescue but we also took photos of the man and his rig. His truck's license plates were covered, but of course, he had a nice truck. Dave called Metro to report the man, Animal Control (which is closed for the weekend), and the local Brand Inspector. I will be meeting with the BI tomorrow as he takes photos of the horse, etc. WE HAVE HAD IT. There is no excuse for this type of behavior with animals. There has yet to be anything done with America, the last horse who was dumped. The AC was supposed to cite the man, but I don't think anyone actually did anything and they just keep telling us to wait. Once I see this new horse for myself tomorrow and talk to the BI, we will be contacting any news organization who might like to do a story about people dumping their animals. I will be posting more about this tomorrow, maybe if we all contact the local news at once, we can get something done.
I am so mad I can hardly stand it.
Thank you to everyone who took care of business while I was gone. You guys are awesome!
