"Hot Diggity Dan" is an appendix quarter horse who is as sweet as they come! Dan is a 29 year old gelding who spent much of his life as a roping horse. Because of this, he has developed some serious osteoarthritis in both his cervical and thoracic spine. He also has degenerative joint disease in his legs and shoulders. He is
awaiting transport for autologous treatments also known as PRP (platelet rich plasma). Dan also has trouble eating as he has lost several teeth! We are currently trying to raise funds for is medical supplies & treatments. Dan is incredibly lovable. He loves to rest his head on your shoulder and whinny in your ear.
Shahs Royal Sheba is a 16 year old Arabian mare who suffers from melanoma and advanced carpometacarpal joint arthritis in addition to bone spavins. She came to us as "terminal". We immediately put her on chemotherapy and we are proud to report that she has now been cancer free for 8 months! She was also under consultation through the Texas A and M Biomedical horse initiative program for both her arthritis and bone spavins. Though her joint swelling has not improved, her freedom of movement has. She is a loving, alert companion and our students love her.
Bert is a 20 year old Haflinger gelding. He suffered with Founder for almost 5 years having been left in lush pasture without supervision. After numerous protocols to address his frontal lameness he now presents with a twisted coffin bone which is a permanent condition. Because of this he is not safe to ride. He tends to buckle under a rider and falls to the ground. He is however a very popular, easy to handle horse for our equine education classes. He stands to be saddled and bridled, groomed, lunged and bathed. He is very patient and fun to be around as he leads easily at both the walk and trot and has a mane and tail that go on for days. He is a hit in all of our braiding and show clinics as he is a finished showmanship horse and teaches our students how to reverse, pivot, back and pose.
Silver is a 3 year old Quarab filly. She was born with diminished eyesight. She also suffers from sidebones disease and a club foot. Corrective shoeing seems to be helping the sidebones disease but the ultimate treatment is increased circulation to the tendons and cartilages so as to slow down the calcification of the soft tissue. She gets 2 hours of PT daily for 5 days with 2 days off. She is invaluable for teaching students how to lunge and control a horse on the ground. She also teaches students the difference in a working walk, collected walk and extended walk as well as the trots and the canter. She has an attitude with other mares but gets along with humans fine! She is rare blue roan so most people love looking at her when she shines blue as the deep blue sea on a sunny day.
