This is just so shocking I can hardly believe it, but I know you would not make up such a horrible story. Do you have any idea who did this or why they might want to "warn " you? andy enemies?

If you do manage to keep her, she may end up being the cutest little one eared horse you've ever seen.

I hope you can find the path. Sometimes it's hard to see it, but it's still there.

:( :( :(

What are the police going to do?
Can they get fingerprints from the note to track down this person who did this?
Can you find a place to mve her of the property so that they dont come back to finish the job??

Just to throw out a few possibilities it possible that someone (maybe even from this forum) could adopt her and take her to a different home where whoever is after her cannot find her? I know there is a thread in the horse talk secion for ppl from Texas. I would do it in a minute if i were closer :/ As to knowing when to call it quits - it sounds like even with the injury Kenzie is in really good spirits. I agree, when she is ready to give up the fight you will be able to tell.

Sorry this happened :( Things sounded like they were going so well..... keep us updated plz.....and know what we are praying for you, and her :)

Cobra has a really good point. Endiku, my heart goes out to you. This is tragic and horrible. But -- a couple of thoughts. As far as humanity, there is evil in the world and you have tripped over at least one person who was evil. There are a lot of others who are rooting for you and Kenzie, and maybe there are Texas horse friends who can find her another home to take her out of harm's way. Not all of humanity is evil. Most of it is trying to be good.

Having said that, here's my other thought - You should be very careful for yourself. Kenzie, as precious as she is, is just a horse. You are a wonderful young lady with your life in front of you. Make sure you are very careful, yourself. If the rescue is open without security to juvies and others, they may not be safe for you to be around if they've been drinking or worse.

I think Swat around (not on) the wound would still help keep flies away, and Vetericyn spray would help the tissue heal and keep it clean (it provides oxygen to the tissues for deterring infection and promoting cellular recovery). I also don't think flies like it, based on my good experience with it in that regard. And then triple antibiotic from your local dollar store is always a good antibiotic ointment. It's not over till it's over for that ear, and I wouldn't worry about it - you do your best and that's all you can do. I know someone who has a one-eared horse and honestly it took me a while to notice....

This makes me sick to my stomach (& it takes a lot). I'm completely speechless.

All I know is that as far as you've come with her and as hard as you've fought for her, you'll find a good solution whatever that may be.

I would take her, but cannot afford to have her trailered to CA. Maybe start a
fund for trailering fees ? and she come live here for the rest of her life. My hubby may have a stroke, but , he would get over it.. !! He was appalled also when he read this. But seriously, start a fund for trailer and adoption fees , and she has a home .

Endiku, if you weren't 20+ hours from me I would come get her in a heartbeat. I am SO sorry this happened; I can't even begin to describe what I'm feeling. I can't imagine going through this.

What SICK b*stard does this?? Unbelievable. And that it took you that many calls to get a vet out to help her? Disgusting.

What was her story before coming to the rescue? Could it have been a threat specifically about her, or do you think it was directed at the rescue in general?

So sorry. (((((Hugs)))))

Reading this made me sick to my stomach. I am so devastated for you and Kenzie. I wish that I could say something to console you both.

maybe to keep the flies off, get an over sized fly mask with ears ? or ifyou can sew, get some netting and try to make something that would give lots of room with her ears, and that would tie at the throat latch , like a big bonnett for her.
