Every Little Bit Helps

Those of you who know me, know how much I love horses. One in particular who unfortunately, has disappeared no thanks to her neglectful owner. :-(

I can't help Lilly anymore, but we can help Lindy. Lindy is from Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary out about 15 minutes from my house. Lindy is a 25 year old Arabian mare that arrived at TREES back in November.

That's Lindy up there. She needs an eye surgery. See how the one is bulging? Lindy has glaucoma and the eye needs to be removed. Her tear ducts are also blocked, which makes them constantly spill over the lower lid and onto her face. That causes skin irritation and provides an environment fit for topical infections. Removing her eye will address that issue as well.

Please. The surgery costs $1170. They are ALMOST there at about $960. Not too much more to go. And every little bit helps. It doesn't have to be much. I can't help Lilly anymore, but I can help other horses who need us just as much. Can you help too?

Click here to be directed to Lindy's page. On the right hand side is where you can click to chip in (link currently says $600 has been raised, that has not been updated to reflect donations from today, according to TREES owner, they are over $950 now). Imagine the difference donating just $5.00 can make.
