Help a retired racehorse get the surgery he needs

Air Power is a gorgeous six year old thoroughbred gelding that we adopted 1 week after he ran his final race. He raced for 4 years. When we adopted him we were told he was sound with no injuries but we soon found out that was not the case. X rays showed that there is a large chip (fracture) in the knee, and that it has already caused some arthritis. The vet thinks that he had been racing with that chip in there for quite a while. After we got opinions from three of the leading equine vets in Oklahoma, we know that he needs the surgery to remove the chip. Removing it gives him the greatest chance at staying sound and living a happy, pain free life, with a good likelihood that he will go on to have another career (not racing). This guy is a big puppy dog and has the kindest soul. He raced and won a lot for his previous owners, and deserves a happy, healthy retirement from racing. He will stay here with us and will never be at risk for slaughter...where so many off the track thoroughbreds end up. Of course, when we adopted him we weren't thinking this sweet guy would need this surgery, and the finances are the only hold on getting it done. If you would like to help Air Power get the surgery he needs, please consider donating. If you are unable to donate, prayers for him would be equally appreciated ❤
