The Craigslist Ad for Kane listed his selling price quite low which meant that he could possibly end up in a bad situation.  A call was made to Volunterr Mel E. to contact the seller as she was close to the seller's location to see what the situation was.
A friend had left this horse with the seller because he had moved out of state.  After 2 months, the seller did not have the resources to keep this horse amd the owner gave permission to sell him.  The sellers were nice people, but could not take on the cost of care of this horse.  They really wanted to find him a good home.
Another call was made to Cindy Henderson of Henderson Ranch to see if she could transport this horse to TIER since his location was near her.  Mel E. coordinated with the seller for Cindy to pick him up.
According to the seller, this CUTE guy did not have a name.  Since it is the Christmas season and this horse is Red & White, Mel christened him Kane (a takeoff on Candy Cane).
In the original pictures on the Craigslist Ad Kane's neck, shoulders, chest were showing signs of being underwieght and lack of muscle tone.  Since his arrival at TIER, he has had his head burried in the hay feeder.  He also became quite animated when we gave him some hay pellets.  Hungry Boy!
Groceries, Farrier care & Dental care will be scheduled.  It appears that there is an old injury to Kane's whithers and an appointment with the wonderful Dr. Don Moore has been scheduled for next week.
Donations toward helping Kane are needed.  Thank You!
