Hope in the Valley Horse of the Month

Bosco is currently a Sanctuary horse at Hope in the Valley. While romping with the other horses, Bosco ran into a tree. He broke his shoulder and injured his face. Bosco could barely eat for months and the wound refused to completely close. The Board of Directors had hoped to raise the funds first to cover this big medical cost, but after deliberation….we decided that Bosco must have surgery one way or another. Our reasoning is that Bosco is not adoptable with a serious facial/nasal issue and he cannot live with the that huge hole that you could hear him breathing through. With summer approaching, the repair needed to be completed before the flies came out. So, Bosco has received the surgery he needed.

PLEASE….We are asking for donations to replenish our medical funds. The link to the rescue’s website to DONATE is:http://hopeinthevalleyequinerescue.org/donate.php 
** Please specify for “Bosco” **
