Red Bucket Rescue #356 Ella and #357 Clarabelle

It is hard to believe the mare is pregnant again…and that the person responsible for “saving” her is also responsible for her severe neglect…and both pregnancies. While this brand of betrayal causes our hearts to clench and our heads to ponder the absurdity of the unbelievable, we are grateful for the three lives that we now will protect and nurture. Both Ella and Clarabelle have been treated by our very own Dr. T, are on the right track to recovering from a very high fever and upper respiratory infection, and are settling in with an abundance of nourishing hay…and their favorite twice-daily meal of Mare and Foal. Our new residents are still a bit wary but, as with all of the formerly unwanted, demonstrate gratitude…and are beginning to earnestly call out in that all-too-familiar clammer of “room service, please!”. We welcome Ella, little Clarabelle, and the new foal, who will be born wanted and safe! Warm and sincere thanks to all of you who make our lifesaving work possible!
