Dwarfism is a genetic deformity that can
happen to miniature horses.
SaveTheHorses.org has 4 dwarfs and 2 miniature horses with dwarf characteristics. We have never had the opportunity to get a dwarf young enough to correct the twisted limbs they were born with. Though we have tried finding a veterinarian to do surgery, it was too late for all of our dwarfs. Our farrier, Marian Figley, is doing a wonderful job working on their little crooked hooves though.
We have been contacted buy the owner of a dwarf filly born in May and young enough to do surgery. I already contacted 2 surgeons willing to do it. It will cost a minimum of $2000. but we feel it is very worth the cost. There is one more major problem, this little filly, Strawberry Shortcake, is located near Eugene, Oregon and we are near Atlanta, GA.
We really need to raise money for surgery and transport. It is about 2700 miles and Strawberry Shortcake's miniature mom will come along and become part of SaveTheHorses.org as well.
We estimate we need $5000. to commit to help Strawberry Shortcake survive and thrive to a good and long life.
Please help if you can and please cross post and pass on for Starwberry Shortcake! Thank you.
