Support us with donations & adoptions during the ASPCA's 2018 Help A Horse Campaign!
On May 29th LEARN took in two horses, Spirit and Bailey, who were 2 of 25 starving horses from a cruelty and neglect case being worked on by Valiant Rescue.
Spirit is an 8 year old chestnut grade quarter horse mare and is a 1 on the Henneke scale. She required IV fluids with a vitamin jug upon arrival. Her condition is guarded.
Bailey is a grade 15 year old Buckskin mare, was heavy in foal when she arrived and is a 3 on the Henneke scale. Her condition is fair.
*Update on Bailey's foal*
It is with heavy hearts we announce Bailey, miscarried her foal on June 6th. The vet believes he contracted equine rhinopneumonitis due to no vaccines. He was approximately 30 days early and perfectly beautiful, a buckskin like his precious mom. He is buried at the main farm with our others who have crossed the rainbow bridge. Bailey is being aggressively treated to prevent endotoxin illness and she is responding well as of her treatment today. We tried our best, gave our all, and prayed for a different outcome.
Thank you for walking this journey with them, with us, and sharing your love. We appreciate your continued support and prayers.
We are in need of donations to provide rehabilitation for these poor souls.
Thank you and God
In December of last year, this group of six starved horses came to L.E.A.R.N. from an animal neglect case in Camden, South Carolina. All were 1's and 2's on the Henneke Body Scoring Scale which meant a lot of time and money with intense rehabilitation. Thanks to your love, prayers, and support they are thriving and are available for adoption! We could not do this without you and we greatly appreciate your efforts!
Please look for their story as the documentary, Finding Forever Homes, unfolds.
Donations towards their continued care are always needed and greatly appreciated!
The day they were rescued
Lakota, Cloud and Rain came to L.E.A.R.N. in November of 2016 after Bamberg County Animal Control seized them. They were all underweight and hadn't received veterinary, dental or farrier work in years. Rain went to his forever home in December of 2017. Lakota and Cloud are still awaiting their forever homes.
Captain before being seized by animal control
Captain, Rooster, Coco and Gracie came to LEARN in July of 2017 from Orangeburg County and were all in varying stages of starvation. We are very grateful to the ASPCA for providing a grant to help with their rehabilitation and our many supporters for donations made towards their care. After a few months of rehabilitation and then training, they all went on to new homes where they are loved by their amazing humans.
