HORSES WITH MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR IN REHAB  & SOME OF OUR SEIZURE CASES

Heartland Equine Rescue has taken in several severe medical cases in the recent months.   We believe in giving all equine the chance at having a quality of life.  We do our very best to help them and get them the best medical care possible.   We've taken in some very tough medical cases over the recent months.  Donations are always appreciated.    


Since March of 2020, our rescue has spent over $14,000 in VET CARE only.   At the bottom of our page are payments made to various Vet's from our bank statement.    We can't do this without your help. Please consider donating to help a horse like the ones you see pictured below.   

Thank you! 

CHLOEY - 17 yo Belgian Mare.  Prior hip injury and is pregnant.  She is expecting a June 2023 foal. 

More information on Chloey coming soon.  

TAKODA - 30yo Gelding.  He came to us from the local auction. He was extremely thin. He has DSLD in his bag legs.  He also suffered from a horrible case of diarrhea, which is now under control after bloodwork, and some new meds.  He is doing very well. Updated picture of him below.  He will remain in our rescue due to his age.  

WELCOME 9 YO PERCY!  

Percy is a 9yo ASB Gelding.  He came to us very sore in his front legs.   Since he has had xrays done, and also shoes put on to help with his feet.  Injections will be considered if the Vet feels that is necessary.  He is gaining some weight and is scheduled to have his teeth done shortly. 


September - 2022.   Percy is still being worked with on his feet.  He is very shoes and seems to be improving somewhat.  Injections may still be the only option for him going forward.   

BETTY -  32+ YO MARE
She came to us in terrible condition.  Very thin, and a terrible coat.  She is being treated for cushings at this time.  She is slowly making some improvements and we are working with the Vet to make sure her medications don't affect her weight gain progress.   She has a great spirit about her and continues to fight, so we'll fight right along with her.  

UPDATE:  Louey had surgery on this hoof. He had a Keratoma removed.  As of 10/25/22 he is on stall rest with only hand walking, daily bandage changes and medication. He is doing very well though and his prognosis is great!  His surgery costs were around $4,000.   



LOUEY -  19yo TB Gelding. 


He came to us with a severe case of untreated laminitis, and an untreated abcess which caused a huge infection in his entire hoof.    After an emergency vet visit and 2 more visits with the Vet he is doing a bit better.  He is now able to keep weight on all 4 legs and the swelling and infection has improved.  This boy is so sweet and we can't wait to see him healthy again.   Below are pictures of the foot.
