Will Needs Surgery

Will and Becky have been there for each other for over three years, prior to that, Will provided equine companionship for Lisa.  He has never asked for much in return for his unwavering loyalty and top-notch performance in the Hunter Show Series, with the exception of some fresh straw and a cookie now and then.  He is always anxious for his next visit from Becky, even though she comes almost every day.  When he sees her truck pull in the driveway, he abandons his fellow equine friends and breaks into a full gallop, running toward the gate where he awaits her outstretched arms. 

 
Although Becky is almost always on the receiving end of the relationship, her best friend now needs her help.  Less than one year after winning Grand Champion at the Cumberland County Show Series, Will finds himself in emergency care in North Jersey.  After observing Will didn’t have his usual enthusiastic, cheerful, energetic disposition, Becky called the vet.  What was originally thought to be colic, turned out to be much worse.  After spending the night in the barn by Will's side, Becky realized that the problem might not be so simple. 





 

First thing in the morning, Becky called the vet back and Will was rushed to an emergency facility in North Jersey where veterinarians took an ultrasound and discovered his displaced colon. Being the fighter he is, Will quickly began to recover.  Within a few days, he began light eating and his playful disposition returned. His colon began to return to normal.  Unfortunately, things took another turn for the worse just as they were beginning to look up.  He now finds himself at square one and the vet bills are mounting.  The underlying cause of the problem was originally missed, but it is now clear that Will needs surgery. 

 

Though Becky is working full time, selling her dearest possessions, and borrowing from everyone willing to lend, she is still short of the thousands of dollars needed for the mounting vet bills required to get Will back on his feet.  Please give what you can to a good cause, and help one of the most caring people in the world care for her best friend.
