This little guy was rescued from Morrison Canyon in Fremont. He had been there s few days and is maybe only a week old. TriCity Animal Shelter is currently caring for him, but he has a broken pelvis and needs surgery as soon as possible. This will cost about $10,000.. Please contact TriCity at (510) 790-6640 for more information.

Donors, I'm happy to report that I've delivered your funds to the hands of Sandi Stadler at Fremont Animal Services, and they will pay for Valentine's existing medical bills plus those to come. I took a drive to Morrison Canyon, where our boy was found. It's dizzyingly steep, dark, and cold. It's a wonder he survived the fall at all. No matter now. We've all done a great thing, and he is safe and happy.

Home at last!

Our little Valentine has a new home in Orland,, California with the Baileys and lots of other horses. Foals, too! Here is a link to a live webcam in his stall. He even has a new toy! This link opens directly to the camera on my phone, but goes to a signin page when I use my computer. Let me know if you are not able to reach the live feed.

Maybe you can set aside some of the funds to have a little meet & greet party after Valentine's fully recovered? I would love to meet the little guy and give him some carrots & love!

That is great news. I hope that the money raised here will go to his care and feeding and all the vet bills for him. I am happy to have given for him and want the funds to go to his care. I hope that he finds a loving home. He is such a cutie.

I agree with Update #5. I find it almost impossible for any horse owner to "misplace" a horse. Let alone one who has been in the headlines for the last 24 hours. I'm sure this isn't feasible, but perhaps there is a way to investigate local horse owners to see which (if any) mares have recently given birth with no foal in sight.

We couldn't be happier for Valentine! Thank you to everybody for nursing him back to good health! My boys love seeing the live feed via webcam to see first hand how their generosity made such a difference. Thank you for the updates and for the chance at the life lesson for my boys too.

my darling little baby, i wonder how can a foal 6 days old can/or jump the ranches fence ( depending how high ) and end up in the ravine if the colt was born in the grassy field? or in the barn how can mom and baby break out of the barn door? when secured?

Great job. We can help one creature or another. Lets start with this one. I don't understand how the owner could have lost it like this?? Would this be considered animal cruelty????
