We need help getting 2 geldings moved into the main facility or into a permanent home - they were assisted over the weekend via Mattie's Fund. These geldings were NOT supposed to be in the deplorable condition in which they arrived. We were told they were in "great shape" and "you'll have no problem placing them"...um, yeah...once again, I am astounded by one persons view of what is "great shape" and what is not...as of right now, we will require a front and profile photo of any horse being assisted by Mattie's Legacy Fund - so this doesn't happen again.
Covered in rain rot, being extremely wormy, having last years burrs in your mane & tail, feet WAY overdone is NOT being in good shape. Oh, I forgot the sticky nastiness the foster mom is cleaning from their bellies. To say I am unhappy is an understatement. We now are looking at extra bills - for shots, feet, coggins, health cert, etc. these things would NOT be an issue had we been prepared for (we could have been prepared had we known the truth) them.
We are helping, on average 15 to 20 horses EACH month...this will now take away our ability to help other horses this month...so, as much as I don't want to do it, I am posting a chipin to ask for assistance. We WILL assist these 2 geldings and make sure they get the care they need, the new loving home they deserve and are utd on everything, no matter what - but it will greatly affect our ability to help any more horses this month...sigh...
So, we are asking for help via this chip in, if you can help us with these two, we can provide more care for the next ones waiting...thank you, Jo Deibel
