Karen Skipper Lockhart is organizing this fundraiser.
My husband and I started our farm back in 2002, we lost our only child in January of that year , the horses helped us through our grief. We bought our property, and began to build our barn, just the two of us, one stall at a time. In 2005 we had a wonderful paint foal, we lost him in a freak accident and it broke our hearts, we almost quit but did not. In 2010 we were blessed with Coolx, a wonderful stallion, he had been injured as a 2 yr old, but in our eyes he was perfect, the picture on this site is me showing him locally in 2011 , despite the injury , he was High Point Stallion. Due to his injury he is beginning to have problems with his legs and feet. At the same time, our 12 yr old barn is beginning to need serious repairs, to the point it scares me when we have a storm. Coolx needs a full vet work up, x-rays, blood work and possibly, further diagnostic tests to figure out what is causing his problems and to help him. The back of the barn is literally falling off and needs to be repaired, as does the roof. We work hard, but due to the way things are, we just do not have the amount of money that is needed to do everything we need to do. I want to be able to take the best care of Coolx possible, he is my heart, the relationship I have with him is awesome . And above all that his personality is worth more than his weight in gold. He is a great stallion, very loving, takes care of his foals and is good to his mares. Thank you for at least reading this, if nothing else, please say a prayer for Coolx. If requested by donator, I will send a 5x7 of Coolx, signed (hoofprint on back) by him.
