Doxy’s used $578 for dental and [eye] exams and treatment as indicated. The remaining $422 was used to purchase hay.
We have 2 horses who exhibited eye conditions that were examined with recommendations provided by the veterinary to enhance the quality of life and promote the safety of these 2 equines. Six horses were examined by an equine dentist to ensure proper and comfortable grinding to promote optimal nutrition. The funds provided through the grant enabled us to provide our adoptable horses with services that are surely important to their lives but not always able to be provided for financially. Having the “gift” of hay for our 17 adoptable horses was a plus and benefits each horse.
The grant specifically helped 8 adoptable horses and contributed to the daily welfare of the other 9 horses waiting to be adopted
Windsong was a senior, 25 year old, mare that came to us in poor condition. Through improved nutrition, dental and good daily care she blossomed into a handsome senior and was adopted on September 7, 2013 to a wonderful, loving home. Magnum, who had been adopted and was waiting to go to his new home, was found to have failing peripheral vision and will now remain at Doxy’s until he can be adopted to a family with no more than 2 other horses in order for him to safely live. The first 2 photos show Windsong’s before and after pictures and the 3rd shows Magnum in a pasture where he can safely live with only 1-2 other horses.
