Our vet said Helen is good to travel but must be treated very gently. The transporter assured me he would be extremely careful. I spoke with Shelly in New York who is taking her. She has foaling experience and has a blind 3 y o gelding. The delay has been the snow storm in the Midwest where the transporter is. He said late Tuesday or early Wednesday. Lori paid for the vet and health certificate and the $500. for transport. It has been our pleasure to keep her safe until she goes 'home'.
Now that skinny stallion stayed on my mind. On Tuesday, I sent a volunteer back to animal control with a large round bale of hay and some Safe Choice grain and fat supplements. my opinion is, he needs hay in front of him at all times. They said he is on a special diet and they will consult with the vet. I plan on calling the vet to see if we can help. We also told animal control we will furnish food for him anytime. Many Georgia animal controls are struggling. We have supplied dog and cat food to other animal controls in rural areas as well. We run Fido's Soup Kitchen, giving pet food to needy animals when owners are having problems. We also have a hay bank providing hay and grain for horse owners in financial trouble. The majority of people looking for help love their animals very much. Their pets eat before they do. I hope help can be found for any folks struggling with their pets needs. We are all in this together. All your help is appreciated very much!
