Help us name our baby!
The rescue of May and the birth of her high-risk baby
Sick but determined and with the help of my friend Gino, we made the 12 hour exhausting trip to rescue three horses. All had been starved almost to death and abused. And all were slated to be killed.
Recovering from an aneurysm and still having an IV attached to my arm, I told my doctors each one said the other one said it was ok to rescue. After seeing their pictures and understanding the hell they were going through…..it wasn’t optional and we had to help.
We loaded all three horses into the trailer. As we closed the giant metallic white door, I had a tear in my eye but felt very grateful for the amazing horseman, Gino, who I saw tear up too.
We worried if they would even make it through the drive back, so I prayed. “Dear God, please help us make it back safe and all three be alive,” I said, as we hit the road.
Safe and sound back at the ranch, the mares were all seen by the veterinarian. He said May May was pregnant, but because she was so skinny we couldn’t tell how far along she was. If it was to happen anytime soon, it would be a high-risk pregnancy. It happened the next week.
A nurse who was caring for me came by, and I was giving her a tour of the farm. I will never forget her words. I said, “That’s May May,” and pointed to her in her paddock. She said, “Is it normal for a foot to be hanging out of her you-know-what?”
“Oh Shit!” was all I could say, and we got busy trying to save May May and her high risk baby.
The video shows what happens next.
Now this miracle baby needs a name, and the rescue ranch needs some much needed donor dollars to pay for the medical needs of the animals and ensure the baby has the best start at life. YOU can be a hero and name her if you’re the winning bid and be part of the history of the first filly ever born at the ranch!
Love, woof and nay……Randy and Gino
Oh, my IV is finally out!
