Jack's Story

We have a local stable that works with special need children that has given so much to the community. Now they have had a special need birth - a colt with a cleft palate.

Our story starts out with Dottie, Jackís Mom.
Dottie is a horse that has been a long time contributor to Project Stable, an equestrian program for special needs children. Every Saturday Dottie would do her best to help those less fortunate than us. Dottie came down with a foot problem and could not be used for the special needís classes. In order for Dottie to earn her keep until she recovered, she was breed so the offspring could be sold. Dottie is a registered Appaloosa. After Dottie was breed the Vet determined that the breeding did not take.
Life</B> went on as usual until the morning of Friday, May 14, 2010. At 8:00 am there was Jack in the stall with Dottie. What a surprise! Jacks body looked normal, but his nose was not right. Jack was born with a condition called Wry Mouth. Jack is a beautiful brown and white blanketed appaloosa colt. At first our research and the vetís opinion was to put Jack down since he would not be able to feed himself and he looked disfigured. Further research led us to the University of Florida and an answer to Jacks dilemma. After speaking with the vet there and sending pictures, we found an expert in this field who has performed many successful operations of this type.

We</B> have to wait until Jack is 4 months old to perform the operation. Right now Jack has to be bottle fed every three hours. Jack will be an inspiration to our Special Needís students. They will be able to see how an imperfect horse like Jack can grow up to lead a normal life and be asset to our Community. We are now in the process of raising funds for Jackís operation.
Follow Jack's progress on


Our goal is to Raise $5,000.00 to cover the operation and rehabilitation costs.
