A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED!  Vashka is safe in his Forever home.

The "campaign is over, but Claire and Vashka will have many years of remembering how folks pitched in to help this special horse.  Anyone who knows Claire knows that she will continue to "pass it on" as she always has. Now with Vashka on her team (along with all the other four legged critters at Shotgun Ranch) I'm sure Claire will be unstoppable. 

Vashka's former owner abandoned all her animals to take off on a "spiritual journey", leaving Vashka with a former landlady who can no longer afford to keep him or to address his special needs and must choose between finding him another home or putting him to sleep.

Bringing Vashka from Oregon to Arizona will ensure he has the Forever Home he needs.

Otherwise healthy, Vashka is Insulin Resistant(IR) and has done well on a low sugar/starch forage diet formulated by Nutritionist Claire Cox-Wilson.  Claire has taken in other equines and has saved many - one horse or donkey at a time.  She has the space, time,ability and love to care for Vashka - we only need to transport him from Oregon to Arizona.  I can't think of anyplace better than Claire's Shotgun Ranch where I would want a special horse of mine to live out his life.

The cost to bring Vashka home will be somewhere between $1500 to $2000.  Friends are networking to keep the cost as low as possible but, because of his IR, time is of the essence. Not having proper care could result in laminitis or worse so it is important to brring Vashka home within a few weeks.
