Rescued horse number 298... who is that?
We certainly don’t refer to him as a number... his name is “TIMMY TIPTOES”! And his beautiful momma, “Miss Moppet”.
Miss Moppet was saved out of the kill pen on May 4th, 2018.... she was only 3 years old and she was pregnant. Less than 70 hours later, Miss Moppet gave birth to a stunning colt, Timmy Tiptoes. At first all seemed great but within 12 hours Timmy started to deteriorate rapidly and couldn’t stand. He was rushed to CSU where he was treated for dummy foal syndrome and sepsis. It was touch and go for a few days but thank goodness little Timmy was a fighter.... he made it through and never looked back!
Timmy always lived up to his name and loved to stand on his hind legs.... he was always into something and causing trouble... I am sure his now mom would love to share some stories
Miss Moppet went on to get professionally started under saddle and also found a wonderful forever home. A beautiful and athletic mare that was discarded for no apparent reason... she is seriously amazing.
DHOH invested a lot of heart, soul, tears, joy, time and money into these 2 beautiful animals and every penny and second was worth it. This is what we do and this is where your donations go... to horses like Miss Moppet and Timmy Tiptoes.
Tonight we will share the story of rescued horse number 121.... a different type of success story!
#coloradogivesday2020 is tomorrow.... we hope to raise enough funds to keep allowing us to go above and beyond for these deserving animals. If you have it in your heart and are financially able, we would so appreciate your donation! The horses will thank you too!
