Surgery updates for LP’s Tiger and Tater Red: LP’s Tiger (aka “Elle”) had originally been scheduled for surgery (to remove her ovaries) on 1/16. Unfortunately the icy weather and road conditions made it impossible for the veterinarians to get to the clinic that day. Her surgery will now be on Feb 14. Tater Red’s surgery (to remove retained testicle) is scheduled for Feb 20. Both procedures will be standing surgeries. We’ve never had two surgeries in a single week before! But we are looking forward to Elle and Tater having successful procedures and being able to resume their journeys to new careers and loving homes. We still are raising funds for their surgeries ($1,000 left for Elle and $1,200 left for Tater) — and many, many thanks to everyone who has donated to help these two VERY deserving horses!
