Jack came into the program when some concerned neighbors saw him standing in a pen with several other horses. Jack was the only skinny horse there.
After the enighbor contacted CFH, the authorities were called and immediately removed Jack. As you can see by his before picture he was only about 750 lbs. and he had one eye that was severely infected from an injury.
Jack was immediately taken to the vet to determine what care he would require. He was extremely anemic, his heart rate was not good and the outlook was very poor.
His foster home was not about to let anything but improvements happen to Jack. He was fed mutiple small meals a day and his foster dad diligently gave him medications, red cell, pain meds, etc. It was a long rough few weeks, but Jack did pull through much to the veterinarians surprise.
The next order of business was to have the eye addressed. It was determined to have the eye removed. It was removed and Jack did great.
Jack’s foster dad fell in love with him and adopted him. His new life consists of going on several trail rides per week. Having one eye does not bother him at all.
Jack is now 29 years old and has had just a wonderful 4
years at his new home.
