My name is Emeraude I am 25 and my mare's name is LiLou.
Lilou is a beautiful 6 year old mare, extremely sweet with an amazing disposition to be a very competitive horse in just about any discipline dressage, jumping or eventing.
Unfortunately all these big dreams came to an end last week when the vet had to be called as Lilou came up really lame.
What showed up the X rays was just heart breaking. Lilou's has a bone chip the size of the tip of a little finger and a couple of smaller fragments in her right stifle joint.
It is extremely painful and is a career ending injury for any type of sport horses. She can not be ridden or work or even be comfortable without surgery. The cost of the surgery is $2500 and followed by another $2000 for a series of 6 ( once a week for 6 weeks ) injections in the joint to help the healing process and give her the best possible chance of recovering.
This money i simply do not have it. I was really not expecting this bad news only a couple of weeks after my other horse Trios'Mandate was diagnosed with Kissing Spine ( arthritis of the spine ) right under
the back of the saddle, which also unable him to be ridden and had to be treated and injected.. i am still in the process of paying his last vet bill of over $ 700 for injections, X rays and ultra sounds and over $1500 for ulcers treatment. He would also benefit from back surgery to have the most comfortable life possible.
All I am trying to do is give these horses the best chance possible to have the best possible life.
Any donations and help sharing this is more than greatly appreciated. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart and theirs.
Please feel free to ask any questions.
