Glad that has been worked out. Is Kenzie lice-free? Is the vet going to do all the paperwork for her move? When I moved my horses, the vet said to just pick up the health cert just before I was ready to go, as it was only good for 30 days-all I needed was that & the Coggins. Never had to show them though,but if I had stopped at a horse motel they wanted them,but we got the horse corrals up in just a couple of hours, so they stood tied to the trailer while their pens went up.

Ok, I found my old paypal account info and reactivated it. The only problem is, for some reason I am unable to use the forum pm's to send everybody the info. So I'm going to ask Endiku to pm everybody wanting to donate to the gas fund my e-mail addy.

If everybody uses the "send money to friends and family" option through paypal, just put in my email addy and an amount and paypal will take care of the transfer.

Wow, as old and "paranoid" as I am, I am constantly amazed at what you can do with the click of a button these days.

As soon as Endiku see's this or gets the e-mail I'm going to send her, you will all have the info.

And a huge thank you to all who have asked to contribute. Every little bit will help and we so appreciate it!

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

I'll be donating whatever amount I can to get Kenzie that much closer to her new home! :) Where are you coming from, Fayde? Do you know how much gas it will cost to get to and from Kenzie's?

My route planner says 750-ish miles one way, so about 1500 total miles. That's probably a short estimate, since MY planner takes the shortest route and I prefer the safer, easier route, which is usually longer. Still, should be pretty close.

The last trip we made hauling a trailer we got about 13 mpg. Big motors are nice for power, not so good for economy...

So guess-timate about 115 or so gallons of gas at an average of, hopefully, $3.50 per gallon gives us about $402.

Not that we have a lot of spare change around, but that's not really that bad of an amount. If one were to buy a horse local, that would not be an unreasonable price. I'm just getting a free road trip with the deal!

As far as I know Kenzie is lice free. Last time I saw an adult lice on her was three weeks ago, and we've just been dealing with breaking the life cycle and getting rid of all of those nasty eggs (and dandard) for past few weeks. I dusted her Thurseday, and she'll be dusted one last time Saturday just as a precaution, then she should be fine. The vet is making us bring her there to be seen before he's willing to sign a certificate just because he knows about her previous illnesses and wants to make sure for himself that she's not running a temperature, goopy, or anything. Which makes sense, even if it does mean more money xD I'm going to go ahead and get that Rabies booster that she's due for as well, while I'm at it.

I'll start sending out the information right now ^_^ if you don't recieve anything from me by tomorrow evening and you still want to donate, shoot me a PM. I'm a bit scatter brained right now and multitasking between this, sending PMs, trying to resist spotify-surfing, and writing a paper on Death Row for economics class xD

Thanks everyone!

I'd love to donate some if you could send me the email address for Fayde.

I've been watching Kenzie since you first posted about her, just never posted because I was speechless throughout the whole ordeal(s?). I'm devastated that she's had to go through this, and if I didn't board I'd have offered to take her myself.

If I have money left over after I pay for gas this next week I will definitely be donating all I can without cutting myself too short to get to work, lol.

You deserve soo much praise for going through all this for one horse, and all I can do is applaud you for it. If she were to have been mine I'd have had to put her down. Too many horses in my area for $100 for me to keep one costing thousands in vet bills, but for Kenzie's sake I am soo glad she got you as a foster mommy. She's come so far and I'm ecstatic to see her get adopted out to a loving home.

Wow. I am amazed. I counted 15 people who volunteered to donate money for gas. Thats got to be enough to at least buy a tank of gas or two, right? I'm telling you guys, your generosity is absolutely astounding.

That being said, you should all have a PM from me with the information on it by now. If you didn't get one just let me know!

Iseul- I've questioned if I'm doing the right thing SO many times throughout the past 13 weeks (it seems like its been so much longer than that!), especially back when we werent even sure if she was going to pull through. She was looking so lethargic near the end of her illness, and I really wasn't sure if I was doing it all for myself or for her anymore. I questioned my motive and her endurance even more last week, when I saw her ear. Now though, I know that there was a reason for all of this. Was it a LOT of money, time, and effort that we've spent on Kenzie? Absolutely. Could it have been used to invest in a horse with less risk, or to rehab a couple of other animals? Probably so. But does it really matter in the end, if we can get Kenzie sound and healthy, with a loving family to call her own? I really don't think so. I know that a lot of people dissagree with me for keeping her alive when all she's doing is costing us money, but she's just SUCH an amazing little filly, and throughout all of this, I haven't seen a single thing that REALLY told me that she was done and just didn't care anymore. Every morning she eats her breakfast with gusto, every evening she does the same thing. Maybe she's a little sore with me for letting her get hurt when she trusted me fornow, and she's not doing silly things like trying to help me muck her stall or running up to me for a 'hug', but I know that that filly will resurface again soon, for Fayde. She's just had a lot to process, poor thing.

She does seem so much older than she is though...not physically, but mentally. I don't think she was born an 'old soul' but experience has shaped her into one for sure. I just hope that she discovers that she CAN be a yearling and have fun before its too late and she's grown up.

Just sent $50. It's not close to covering the trip, but hopefully with all of us, it will be enough.
