Saddlebred mare Irish Eclipse #13396 foaled June 4th 1999   7 yr old - papers and signed transfer.  Note with mare stated broke to drive traffic safe and sound, bred to a nice red stallion due to foal in August 06 - no phone but there is an address so we will attempt to get additional information.  She had a bout of colic at the sale was treated by the vet passed manure and he thought she would be ok but since she did have a problem no one wanted to take a chance on this poor girl so we did....  she will have another chance.  Slaughter rescue. Vision loss left eye.  Eyesight is not responding to treatment and she seems to have lost vision in both eyes she is very comfortable in her surroundings and is gentle, sweet and easy to handle even with this disability.

Bastian - 9 yr old paint pony gelding who was gelded incorrectly apparently someone cut inward creating a hole in the pouch.  The gelding incisions can still be seen on the close up picture.  What has happened is there is now a pocket or hole in his sheath that his penis slides into and he is unable to drop to urinate.  Urine pools in his sheath then drips as you can see in lower bottom  picture.  Surgery was done for 6-23-06 above link has link for surgery pictures.

3-26-06  Injured right rear leg more information to follow

we ordered http://www.rhythmbeads.com/ for him as well will post pictures as soon as we have them! 

he has what looks like a puncture wound he has a cut on his chest area that is healing a long scrape on the right back leg and at his fetlock a big scab which Kattie, Matt and I scrubbed clean but he wouldn't let us poke around. I was trying to get it open so it could drain.  Was successful in giving him 20 cc of naxcel and cleaning the entire area.  He is putting weight on it but he has a cough and definitely has infection going on.  We will call the office to have the vet out sedate him then we can do some tests to see what type of bacteria is in there what it is susceptible to and how best to treat him.

3-27-06- foals leg was cleaned thoroughly pink tissue was seen as well as blood no bad smell of infection was observed however we will be culturing area for bacteria types to make sure naxcel is adequate.

3-30-06 great report from the vet this fetlock will most likely remain slightly larger but no sign of infection, she said we did a great job and he should recover very nicely.  The only problem is the injury is in a tough place to heal due to movement but with wrapping and topical assistance he should be fully recovered in just a few weeks.

4-10-06 culture showed no growth of bacteria full recovery expected.

6-21-06 - all better I am ready for a home!

7-8-06 - my new family took me home thank you!
