I'm Mary Hagen! Entrepreneur, and horse mom. I broke my back a little over a year ago after being thrown from a show horse. I thought I'd never own horses or ride again. 


But lo and behold, 6 months ago, this little guy stole my heart. I was informed of some mustangs that needed a home and I went to take a look at them. Chaz was just about 1 year old, and the sweetest thing I'd ever seen. He was curious, bold, a little dopey and just the right amount of mouthy. I called him Chaz the moment I saw him - and knew he was going to be my horse. 


I adopted him along with his mother, Stella, and Noches, his aunt. 


All 3 of them have sand in their bellies, which I have been working diligently to help them flush. But it hit Chazzy hard on Thanksgiving day and I had to haul him to the vet. He has been in intensive care since at Chaparral Veterinary Clinic. They are taking wonderful care of my boy, but the bill is racking up and we're not ready to quit on him. 


He FINALLY made some progress yesterday afternoon, when I thought I was going to lose him. A $12,000 surgery would save him... and if I raise enough here I will do it!


If I don't raise that much, the money will be used to keep treating him for as long as he is making progress. Every day he's in there the bill increases by about $1,300 and soon they will have to start supporting him nutritionally as well. 


He has a chance to come back from this! Your support is very much appreciated. Feel free to contact me with any questions!
