Poor Carla. Unfortunately a tumour in the nasal cavity is a death sentence. They tend to be very aggressive and are usually inoperable.

I hope, too, that she stays healthy and strong at least for a little while longer. She deserves it.

Sometimes, with love, compassion and care- these things can reverse and miracles do happen. Let's hope that is the case.

Some of you may remember from last December when Press Exclusive was discovered at the OLEX sale in Ontario. She was emaciated and had some serious injuries because she had fallen in the truck that brought her to the sale. Mindy Lovell took her in, knowing well she might not survive -- and I honestly believed at the time that the odds were against a happy ending to this story.

Boy. Was I ever wrong.

Update on Tribal Legend tonight from Megan. He's been thoroughly examined and was gelded today. His health is good, EXCEPT: he has old slab fractures in both knees and already arthritis is setting in. He is 4. Vet recommended a series of injections to see if they can help him "toward soundness."

His vet bill is already at $950, so if you have $5 or $10 to spare, AHR could sure use it for him: auctionhorsesrescue@gmail.com

URGENT: SCTR would like to pull this emaciated TB mare (tattooed, but not yet ID'd) from auction tonight. They have the space, but need donations and pledges to get her, transport her, and pay for what will be a long rehab. If you donate, and for some reason they don't get her, your money will be refunded.

As always, every little bit helps.

You can pledge: sctbrescue@live.com

OR

Donate: http://www.sctbrescue.org/

And, yes, some idiot stuck a saddle on her.

ALSO: even if you can't afford to donate right, please share. Especially if you are on FB or Twitter or any other board. This is the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =1&theater

Looks like Cymple Rhythm's last race was in Aug 2008. Gotta wonder where she's been since then. Sigh...one horse at a time. I'm on it!

Great news for Handsomely! From RMR's FB page:

"Handsomely Update! He has been adopted by Cassandra Buckley Naupac, the jockey who won her first race on him. He will be moving to LaGrange, KY in a couple of weeks, as soon as his quarantine time is over. We wanted to thank Handsomely's generous breeder Elaine Bodine Carroll for donating to RMR and helping us continue to pull horses from bad situations and also thanks to the folks who have offered to take Handsomely to Kentucky for Cassandra. This couldn't have worked out better. I believe that in every horses past their are/were people who love them. No horse should ever be given away or sold at auction without first doing a little homework into their past. They touch our lives in ways that are hard to explain. In his case they wouldn't have had to look far to find many, many people that would have given him a home. Good luck Cassandra and Handsomely in your new life."

This is one of the most frustrating things about rescue -- for a lot of horses, there is someone in their backstory who would help -- IF they only knew, and if an owner or trainer had simply taken the time to do their homework before "giving" them away or sending them off to auction.
