Knabstrupper Colt Injured by Cougar

Shortly after his birth, a newborn fewspot purebred knabstrupper colt, a rare spotted warmblood breed made popular in the Pippi Longstocking tales, was attacked by a California mountain lion and dragged from his stall run. Thankfully, the family dog took pursuit and chased the big cat off allowing the colt to be retrieved. He is fighting for his life after suffering multiple puncture wounds to both sides of his neck, allowing air under the skin and has pneumonia. He is being treated at a nearby equine hospital today, and it is touch and go, and we are asking for help and prayers to ensure his chance at survival and that his rare breeding may have a chance to carry on. Please consider helping this holiday miracle and his family in his fight for survival.
