Leslie is a self-employed artist specializing in horse paintings, who was a long-time resident of Grass Valley, CA, before moving to Sebastopol, CA. On February 10, 2016, two of Leslie’s beloved horses, Cowboy and Oscar, and her dog Rosie, were deliberately poisoned by someone who put three piles of oleander-tainted “cookies” in Leslie’s horse pasture. Cowboy and Rosie did not survive; Oscar is recovering. In August, 2015, Leslie lost another horse to an undetermined medical emergency afflicting its digestive system. Between the three deaths, plus the vet bills for Oscar, Leslie is facing costs of more than $30,000. The funds raised by this campaign will go to Leslie for the payment of veterinary bills incurred trying to save Cowboy and Rosie, and for Oscar’s continuing treatment. Any contribution is greatly and sincerely appreciated. Thank you.
