Chippewa Has A Spring In His Step

Chippewa has been bouncing around in the yard and shows curiosity for objects around him.

Chippewa has been bouncing around in the yard and shows curiosity for objects around him.

Little baby Chippewa, the young foal who we have been featuring in the EP News, continues to get better each day.

According to Dr. Marie Richardson (Dr. C), “Chip is doing just wonderful. He’s made huge progress and now, in the mornings, when I first take him out, he’s so happy that he leaps and bucks around in the yard. He’s doing what a horse is supposed to do!”

Chip has also learned how to drink water from a bucket. He still has not taken milk yet, but drinking water is great progress. He’s also been munching on the grass in the yard and learning just how to chew and eat.

As one might imagine, the supplies and medication needed to treat little Chip are very expensive. That combined with bandaging, bedding, food and horse supplies, Dr. C has incurred considerable expenses to care for this baby. Dr. C is 100% dedicated to this little horse and has been treating him for seven weeks now and his future now looks very bright.

If you would like to help out Dr. C with some of Chippewa’s medical expenses, you can drop off or mail a donation to Animal Hospital of the Rockies, P.O. Box 2897, Estes Park, CO 80517. Any size donation would make a difference in the life of this young horse who has a sweet personality and such a determined will to live.

Thank you in advance from little Chippewa and Dr. C, and keep watching the EP News for further updates.
