Campaign finished
Stranger was a performance / Rodeo Horse. After apparently fracturing his coffin bone Stranger was sent to auction loaded down with Drugs to make him appear sounder then what he was. His injury was NOT mentioned. Only 8yrs old and healthy big enough to get top dollar at the slaughter house. His broker ( a killer buyer ) came to me and said...he's a good boy I dont' want to haul him off to the slaughter yard. Please bid on him and he rode the un-named golden horse in we now call "Stranger" . Still limping the crowd was Silent and his fate was glim! I was being bidded up by a fellow killer buyer who was helping his friend up the sale. Outbidded I hung my head low I didn't have anymore to give. So I walked back to where the broker was reloading him back to the still crowded trailer knowing the fate of this beautiful golden boy. He had touched this man's heart too but he was raised this way and this job was his to do no matter how cruel it is. He handed the leadrope to me and struck me a deal . it was a hefty deal for this horse I didn't know how severe it is. Was it an easy fix. Did he need rest? It was going to be a long road but with the leadrope in my hands I saved this golden boy from a cruel dark fait! Even if he can't be saved in the end at least I saved him today. If he has to die...He will with grace and dignity. I took him home and after several vet exams and lameness work ups. After 3 ferriers nobody could figure out what was wrong with our "PErfect Stranger". Falling on deaf ears I asked repetively for xrays. Finally after 3 months sPerformance Equine Clinic listened and sent an x-ray technician out. On 2-18-2013 x-rays were performed where we had localized the lameness in his front left hoof. On the laptop there it was. Clear as day a fracture in his coffin bone. An injury often found in the performance horse world. He has now been referred to a specialist who says the only way to save him is to perform surgery. The other alternative is Humane euthanasia as he is suffering and in alot of pain. HE doesnt have that much time! We need to get this surgery and we need your Pledges / Donations to help save Stranger. We need $3000 to get the surgery done and for post op. His layup is still unknown . This saves his life and merely starts the healing process!! so Please every dollar counts. If you can find it in your heart and your pockets to donate whatever you can as little as $1 you can help save this 8yr old Perfect Stranger . Please SHARE this video and let's go VIRAL! This young beautiful horse does not deserve to die! Together WE can save him!
