#RehabRoundup - let's check in on the horses currently in rehab at the rescue

๐ŸŽ‰ Rehab Complete ๐ŸŽ‰

Rocky - intake due to inability to maintain weight. At a decent weight with some more to go, but will always require pellets to maintain so not considering him in rehab. Taking applications for adoption.

๐ŸฅMedical ๐Ÿฅ

NEW: Apricot - 11/11 auction save, 20-yr-old pony mare, emaciated. On refeed and quarantine.

NEW: Sterling - 11/11 auction save, 23-yr-old gray gelding, emaciated. On refeed and quarantine.

NEW: Cinna - 11/11 auction save, 5-yr-old QH gelding, swollen/injured leg. 

Sugar - Squamous cell cancer/tumor in vulva. Scheduled for surgery on Nov 21 at Nebraska Equine. You can help fund her surgery by purchasing See's Candy here: or contributing to her general fundraiser here:

Benny - navicular. Still working on pain management. Soreness seems more focused on right front, and he did have a left hind tendon injury, so we are wondering at this point if his soreness is more related to that than the tiny bit of navicular that the x-rays showed. Will likely remain no rehab all winter; considering trying Osteo-Max and/or Osphos treatments for relief.

๐Ÿฅ• Behavior ๐Ÿฅ•

Lucy - in pasture, calm and friendly. Much calmer when bonded friends removed from pasture and accepting attention even in a group of friends without aggression. Has been accepting the halter over her nose and not showing any aggression when her friends are removed. Goal: Dakota Showdown 2024 prospect.
Kody - in pasture, calming, and curious. Physical condition fully rehabbed, working on friendliness. Is being caught and brought in, and had his first (lightly sedated) meeting with the farrier.
