Chaps is a Black Bay Moran/Arab Cross Gelding; he was surrendered to Equamore Horse Sanctuary after severe neglect left him with an open, necrotic wound the size of a dinner plate on his left flank. His owner refused to call a vet, and he was trailered to Equamore by a neighbor. The wound was debrided, stitched and bandaged. Drains were put in for twice daily irrigation; and although he developed high fevers and required months of constant care, Chaps fully recovered, with only a scar.
Equamore is a non-profit horse rescue and sanctuary in Southern Oregon, approximately 5 miles from the downtown area of Ashland. There are currently 44 rescue horses being cared for at Equamore, along with 6 privately boarded horses. It is a beautiful place with wonderful volunteers, and the need for funds continues to grow due to the economic situation of some horse owners. If you are traveling to Ashland, you should definitely take a tour at Equamore and see all the wonderful horses they have rescued and rehabilitated back to health. (www.Equamore.org)
