Second, ​the Veterinarian had to come

0

Veterinarian Stephanie came and made a health check on both Rihanna and GummiBear. We knew GummiBear had some health issues, and of course we wanted to know so we could get the best and correct treatment in for him.

He got a heart murmur in his heart. Stephanie suspected Cushing and took a blood test.

GummiBears blood test came back! It confirmed what our veterinarian Stephanie suspected, Equine Cushing disease. It cannot be cured, however, with effective treatment can improve the horse quality of life.

Cushing’s (PPID) is caused by progressive nerve degeneration in an area of the brain called hypothalamus, leading to a reduction in a neurotransmitter substance called dopamine. Dopamine is important in controlling the secretions of a part of the pituitary gland called the pats intermedia, which in turn is responsible for controlling the secretion of hormones including ACTH and cortisol.

His level of iron and zinc are also low.

We have now started the medications. Please, we are in big need of donations to our medical bills.

Together, let’s help GummiBear to live out the time he has left comfortably.

First the Farrier had to come

0

Their hoofs really needed to be worked on. The farrier had to come right away and have a serious work on eight hoofs.

Afterward, Rihanna (20y) was so sensitive walking on the hard ground that she had to be put on Metacam.

Gummibear (24) seemed to feel relieved after the work was being done on his hoofs.

Two beautiful souls on their new journey of life. A way for us to say, Thank you for everything you have been giving to us Humans.

That’s Amore

 

 

Welcome to the Two New Rescue Horses

0

We are at the same place where our second rescue horse Miracle comes from, down in southern Italy.

Rihanna (20y) and GummiBear (24) were finally going to come up to Southern Germany to their new home, our Senior Sanctuary. I was so thrilled, and amazingly, it seemed like the two horses knew that something new and different positive was going to happen. They were calm (–not when they saw the carrots I brought with me) and sweet.

The snow had hit bella Napoli for the first time since 1959! It was crazy chaos and it took me a whole day to find horse blankets for them. Thanks to connections (thank you Marina) we found a store that had two blankets from the Italian brand, Pariani. Thank you, Massimo for the discount!

Halters with leading ropes were found in another store. –Trying to save money.

Hofmann Horse transportation came down from southern Germany. We had used them earlier — with Miracle last year, and we couldn’t ask for a better service. Michael the driver, a calm horse person, made everything so much easier for the horses. (and also my nerves)

Michael did a great job driving them up to Northern Italy, unloaded them to let them eat and sleep in a great stable. Early next morning, it was time again,  loaded them and off they went towards Stuttgart. Heavy snow, roads closed…..he made it safely to the stable where we all waited excitingly.

Welcome, Rihanna and GummiBear to your new life. We want to say, thank you for everything you have done to us humans. Time to give back!

That’s Amore!

Working on those Pretty Hoofs

0

When we look at the picture to the left, I am amazed that he is 26 years old. He looks great.

Today the Blacksmith came and had his hoofs looked over. When he came to our Retirement Home for older Animals, we knew his hoofs were not in great shape.

He has been treated for Abscess and he still got Trush. Stubborn old Trush. It is a little better since he came (October 2017) Working hard to eliminate that.

We got many great recomendations of different treatments that we are trying on him.

He is such a great horse our Senior Rescue Miracle from Italy, here in south Germany with Swedish caretaker and American Sponsor. Multiculture kindness.

That’s Amore!

Finalmente!

We have scheduled the arrival of GummiBear and Rihanna to Germany! They will be picked up from their stable in Italy on February 28th and brought to their new home, where we will provide them with veterinary care, necessary ultrasounds, and lots of carrots!

These horses have seen a lot, and now they will have the very best of everything, with your help. This is our final fundraising push for the monies needed to cover transportation and care for the horses upon arrival.

Both Gummi Bear and Rihanna need dental and hoof care desperately; we will prioritize this care to relieve any pain as soon as possible. We need supplies for the new arrivals as well, but most urgently we need cash to pay the bills and bring our beautiful new horses home!

We are registered in NC, USA and Stockholm, Sweden.
