HPAN Sponsors Equines for $446
The East Tennessee Miniature Horse and Donkey Rescue was asked to help an elderly couple that could no longer care for their minis. The husband is completely bed bound and the wife said she could not handle the responsibility. The minis kept getting loose, and the neighbors were getting angry with them etc. The rescue ended up taking in nine wild minis because they were at risk of being hit by cars and needed care badly. All the mares have foals and are pregnant again; there are two stallions that need castrated; one mare has an injury to her tail; at least one mare needs her teeth done; another one needs x-rays for foundered feet; and they all need vaccines and coggins pulled. For this initial vet visit, covering Red Rover, Checkers, Clue, and Jenga, we sponsored the stated needs.
