Help Missy survive with ICU care

Our Totilas filly is a hearty and incredible example of the KWPN breed standard. Last week Missy developed an infection in her umbilicus (belly button) that would require a routine procedure costing $3000 which we paid in full. It was then, at CSU, when events took a turn for the worst and Missy developed a secondary infection in her body cavity that affected her small intestine. The day we would pick her up to go home we were forced to make a life saving choice to place her back in surgery for the second time in three days for what would give her a chance at life again.

Missy's surgery was successful but we are NOT out of the woods! Our 5-week-old filly will remain in the ICU colic ward of CSU for another 7-10 days, bringing her unanticipated medical costs to 10,000. This is a crushing blow to our family who works hard for what we have.

Missy is incredibly special, bred and carried through a recipient mare against all odds, who has given new life and purpose to the programs we house at our farm. The likihood of ever producing a filly of this breeding and quality again are close to zero. We cannot let her down now in the hours she needs us the most.

Please help us save our family from the crushing blow of emergency medical expense. We are not people who ask for help; thank you in advance to everyone in our community for their support.
