    To Faydes mom-there is a site that estimates the gas cost of a trip after it calculates the miles from point A to point B. Not sure if it's map quest., but MQ can give you approximate mileage & a calculator will tell you how many gallons you might need for the Round Trip.

    For Endiku-your vet that has been seeing her could supply the health cert & Coggins-find out if any other vaccines are needed, then it's up to you & the rescue about what you want to do w/her & where she might be going. You have put so much into her,& I know you care for her a lot, but where she is doesn't sound safe any more.

    Thats very kind of you Fayde, especially since you were willing from the beginning to take her im, and you would no doubt be closer to us than California is. Would you message me some contact information so that I can relay it to the rescue and my BO?

    Between the three of you being willing to take her, I think we've got a great chance of her getting to a home. Perhaps the three of us should swap emails or something to discuss it in a more private setting, since HF only allows us to message one person at a time?

    BO and the rescue aren't hugely thrilled about the idea of Kenzie leaving for a cross country trip, especially considering all of the problems she has had, but if its what is going to be best for her in the long run, its what we need to do. Cacowgirl is right. It isn't safe for her to be here any longer, as much as it pains me to say so.

    About the sugar. I'm actually interested in hearing more about that...one of the vets, two forum members, and a friend have all suggested it, but I don't really understand what it does?

    You can use sugar and iodine (sugardine) it makes a paste and that has worked in the past for some. I am not sure about specifics.

    Osmotic pressure - sugar draws like salt but doesn't sting, it dehydrates the bacteria but doesn't harm healthy the tissues as they are rehydrated by the normal body systems (honey does the same but also contains a natural bacterialstat.) Also forms an artifical dry scab - not as interesting to flies as honey or commercial ointments.

    Christ! People are just...well, sick doesn't even begin to cover it.

    Poor, dear, sweet Kenzie.

    Did you notify the police? They might be able to pull prints off the note if you haven't handled it too much.

    I think I'd definitely be getting some game cameras or security cameras.

    I see. So if I were to make an iodine/sugar paste and figure out a way to paste it onto her ear, it should harden and protect it? I would think that would bring more flies to it though, and flies are aweful around here lately o.o


    Smrobs- the note is in their posession. I haven't heard whether or not they were able to get anything off of it or not yet.

    We used just sugar, but was told about using it and iodine. We cleaned it with iodine and just sprinkled sugar, but we were also working with a very nice old reliable lesson horse who lets us do pretty much whatever.

    Yeah, unfortunately I've got a fairly unpredictably, 'uppity' yearling to deal with, who happens to hate my guts right now xD I'll talk to BO about trying the sugar today, and see what she thinks about it.

    Yes he also has a hole in his jaw, two actually, from an infection in the jaw bone that will never go away, so his butt was nothing.

    I have no problem if someone closer wants her. It would be better for the little horse with less travel distance. ;) and then last night my hubby informs me that the big tractor needs new back tires ( oh great only about 500 a piece)
    And his truck needs work done.. I swear it never ends.
