Harley, near death the day we rescued him
(May 10th, 2011)

Harley Now!!!
September 10th, 2011

Harley and Lacy ~ 2 Months

Our HANDSOME Harley! I can hardley believe this is “Harley.” It is TRUE! He is now an AMAZING 950 lbs. “Thank you” to all who sent donations to help Harley. Because of you, Harley has hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans for you declares the Lord, plans of hope and for a future.” He continues to eat, needs hoof trims and shots. Please prayerfully consider sending $10, $20, or even a $50 tax deductable gift so that we can continue caring for this guy. God Bless and THANK YOU! Stop by the farm with a carrot or apple if you are in the neighborhood and would like to visit Harley.

Online Giving Now Available!

Thank you!

Harley and Lacy 1-month after rescue

Harley and Lacy 1-month after rescue. Both are doing fantastic. Harley has gained 100 lbs. and has now earned the title “The Hog!” His coat is shiny and the wounds on his back are almost completely gone. We have started some ground training with Lacy. Another post, with pictures, at 2-months.

If interested in making a tax-deductable donation, please don’t forget to include “for Harley and Lacy Fund.” We accept PayPal or you can send your donation to our Pickens PO address.

Thank you for helping us provide for our rescue horses.

Happy Trails,

2-Weeks "Harley and Lacy"

Harley and Lacy at Day 14 are doing amazing! Harley is now eating 12 lbs. Senior per day and Lacy is eating 6 lbs. of Safe Choice. Both are grazing on beautiful pastures 24/7!! They both will be packing on the weight. Next update with photos will be at 2 months. Here are pictures from Day 14.

DAY 7 - Harley

DAY 7 Harley Is getting stronger every day. He is now up to 3 hrs on pasture free-choice hay, and 8 lbs of Senior feed!! Bob has nic-named him “the hog! OH, and check out his new toe-nails :) LOL “Hooves”

Harley & Lacy DAY 3

Harley and Lacy had a busy day, both were seen by the farrier and the vet. Harley has a Stage 3 heart murmur and has a .5 Body Condition Score. His feed will gradually increase until he is receiving 12 lbs. of Equine Senior. He will continue to receive this for the next two months until he is of normal weight. He is currently 650 lbs. He should weigh approx. 1050 lbs. We will have to wait and see if Harley’s heart condition gets better with time or if the damage is permanent.

Lacy is doing much better. Her heart and lungs sound good. She is currently receiving 4 lbs. of Nutrena Safe Choice and is under weight.

These two have the BEST HOME and have had many visitors already. THANK YOU for welcoming them to their new home. I will post pictures and an update on DAY 7.

Any donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductable.

On May 10th we received two rescue horses; welcome Harley and Lacy. As you can see, Harley has not had a good life up until now. Lacy is also malnurished. Both require much veterinary care as well as work done on their hooves, and medicated shampoo for a bacterial infection. These two require much care, but with a lot of TLC and your help, both will be allowed to lead productive, full and happy lives.

Please prayerfully consider doing what you can to help neglected and abused animals. Donations are tax deductible. Checks canbe made payable to: Mounted Ministries, PO Box 71, Pickens, SC 29671. Please indicate for “Horse Rescue”
