A quick update to everyone. I am sad to say that I still do not have new photos. The girl that changes the bandages along with another friend texted me and said that now that Piper is healing up more and more, she is beginning to move around more during bandage changes. Obviously she is getting stronger and able to move around more. My friend had her hands full during this morning's bandage change and forgot all about taking an update photo. The next bandage change is in 4 days! So sorry I don't have a photo to post today!

We should get new photo soon. The sad thing is that I am back to square one when it comes to finding a new home for Piper. The horse rescue just helped the sheriff's office out in a nearby county and rescued another 5 horses. They are filled up to capacity, and cannot take Piper at this point. The horses they took in all need special care as they were nearly starved to death. I am hesitant to give Piper away for free to anyone who isn't fully and thoroughly checked out, because of kill-buyers. At this point we are stuck when it comes to finding Piper a great new home. Hoping something change!

Sorry to hear about being back at square 1. Would the rescue have any more connections for you? Maybe someone there knows someone who knows someone...

Is there a college or community college in your area with an equestrian program? Or a vet school or hospital? Some colleges will have equine students come in with no horse. They may be able to match piper up with a student if you are sure she will eventually be ridable.

@akihba Sadly not at this time. The owner already asked around for me and nobody seems to be willing or able to take Piper on. I can only hope that that will change as she gets stronger. Thank you! <3

@carshon That is a wonderful idea. We do not have a vet school, the closest one I can think of is Pullman, Washington, but we do have Boise State University. I am just not sure if they have an equestrian program, but I can make a phone call or two. Thank you so much! <3

I have a general question. I have a private message, and I don't know how to properly open it. I was able to read it when I clicked on "text", however the message still appears unopened. I am not very computer savvy, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!! <3

My girlfriend's sister went to WSU at Pullman. I can get in touch with her if you have any questions about the program there.

@akihba I appreciate the offer, but it's not necessary just yet, I'm not sure that we could trailer Piper that far just yet. I'd have to ask her vet about that. I'm in Boise, ID, so that would be a bit of a ride for her. Although it may be possible if she had frequent rest periods in between the trip. I just don't know yet, but thank you! <3 IF I think of some standard questions though, I will let you know. It's much appreciated.
