Jingles needed for abandoned horse.(We lost the race UPDATE post 613)
I asked DG to post pics and hopefully she can tonight yet. A horse simply walked out of the bush onto the hwy, (ya right). In any event, Dept of Ag asked me to take him in for a time at least. The vet aged this guy between four and five.
He must be broke, he has three shoes on, last years maybe. He has a bit of an old injury but isnt lame. He is missing an eye?????????????? Sound familiar.
And, he is the skinniest horse I have had to date. I am fighting to keep him up as he lays down and forgets. He is so tired, so drained of energy from whatever ordeals he has faced. To top it off, the weather has turned nasty cold again. He has a run in shelter, deep bedding and warm water. I keep getting him up to feed him small amounts and he does but I couldnt get him to get up last visit. He rose but not to his feet. I am just not sure he can make it. He has no interst in the other horses and that is one of my biggest worries.
This guy is going to need a miracle, jingle for him please. He is so bad off, he is the first horse I didnt name immediately. I am thinking he is No Name.

Our horses are not seen as the old and disabled they may have become, but rather as the mighty steeds they once believed themselves to be.
Jingles for NoName! And for you! How the Heck do you do what you do???? Do you think he's been wandering around after being abandoned for a while?
I give you so much credit for hanging in and pulling miracles out of your arse to support your charges. Bless you. I'm not entirely sure I could face the day to day heartbreak you do. I thank you. The horses thank you. Wish I was closer to help you out.
I think you should name him Milagro. Perhaps it will align the stars and become a self-fulfilling prophesy. MAJOR jingles for Milagro, and a thousand blessings on you for helping this poor boy..........
I'd love to have a very private, very brief conversation with his former owner beside my old barn....at the edge of the 30-foot deep pond. Douchenozzle.
Up here we have a grocery chain that sells a "No Name" line of groceries (yes, I see the irony!) The store's name is No Frills, but they also have a line of items called President's Choice (the quality innovative stuff) How 'bout that? I think EVERY four legged friend deserves a name!
