In preparation for his trip to a safe haven, farrier costs, vaccinations, Coggins tests, transportation costs and layover costs (2 weeks!) were taken care of thanks to the generosity of our Wonderful Donors!  Donors stepped in to help Shooter & Livie and TIER's meager reserves/emergency fund was not totally depleted.  THANK YOU!
Because of the networking efforts of Celine Myers of the Ark Watch Foundation (trust me, no small task) and transportation/layover by Marlene Dodge, Shooter & Livie are safe at the sanctuary Humanity for Horses!  It can be extremely difficult to find a reputable, well run horse sanctuary that is able to take in a horse, much less two at once!  TIER contacted Celine asking for help as we did not have room  to take them in at this time.  Celine immediately started networking to find them a safe place.  Lane Michels of Humanity for Horses welcomed them with open arms.
Arrival at HFH was delayed due to Shooter needing dental work so that he could eat comfortably.  Shooter has an underbite that had not received much needed dental attention.  He has what is known as "Monkey Mouth".
Photo of a horse with Monkey Mouth:
He will have difficulty grazing, grow large lower #6 ramps and upper #11 hooks.  He will require yearly dental equillibration in order to maintain a functional mouth. A horse with this condition should never be bred as it is inherited.
Shooter's lower teeth had been neglected to the point that they extended beyond his upper lip.
Thanks to Celine Myers/Ark Watch Foundation, once Shooter had arrived at the layover destination, he was then taken to a well known vet hospital in the area and his dental needs addressed properly.  THANK YOU CELINE!
After a few days of adjusting to the change in his bite and rescheduling of transport dates, Shooter and Livie arrived at Humanity for Horses!
