A call from Warmun community in the East Kimberley about a foal attacked by dogs and badly injured. Saved by nurse Tena who treated the wounds and kept him alive with skimmed milk until Lee drove out from Derby to collect him.
Both Tena and Lee as well as Andrew put long hours and very hard work into saving this colt, now called Hunter.
He’s had his wounds cleaned out several times and the infection is bad. We sent Profelac silver, which he Loves, and lucerne chaff, antibiotics and Chinese herbs and he’s met Lee’s other horses. He’s a real little fighter, has good and bad days but is very keen to eat and drink. He spends time inside under the aircon and spells in a sling as his wounds heal.
