Update: through a generous outpouring of support from horse lovers across the country (Thanks, Horse Nation!), MFFH has surpassed our original fundraising goal of $3,000 to geld the 19 Wicomico stallions.
This is fantastic news because there are still unmet medical needs we can help address. The veterinarian on site has indicated that at least one of the stallions is likely to need a more complex castration surgery. Until these feral stallions are tranquilized and examined thoroughly, there’s no way to determine whether others will need advanced surgical help. We’ll keep you updated about that on Tuesday. In our experience, such surgeries cost a minimum of $1,000. For now, we have increased our fundraising goal to $4,000.
We want to make sure ALL the stallions can receive the care they need in order to become healthy, trainable, adoptable geldings. With your support, we are making this happen. Thank you all!
