Secrets Gift Fundraiser!

Welcome to Secrets Gift Fundraiser!
This was going to be a Christmas Fundraiser but I had some sickness in my family and was not able to get it up early enough, but here it is now!

A friend of mine Dayna from Washington State rescued Secret back in November of 2010, This is her below:
When she went to pick her up she was in a small pen maybe 30 by 50 with another pony mix. They where standing in 3 plus feet of mud and manure. The fencing was the wire square stuff they could have very easily gotten hung up in. There was old pieces of metal and trees in the pen. She was wearing a rain sheet that was dripping wet, was very lame on front right leg and had some proud flesh (bad infection in the flesh itself) going on on the back right aswell. Dayna took her to the the barn she boards her other horses at and it took 3 and a half house to wash all the matted mud and manure from her legs and under side.
She had her almost 4 weeks and in that time her front right leg had gotten worse. The vet came out and he took X-rays and she had a tendon infection. Here are a few pictures of how she looked when Dayne first got her home and a picture of her right leg infection:
Secret was starting to fill out and really seemed to bet getting better! Dayna had put allot of money into vet bills and I was wanting to do this fundraiser to help cover those cost! Here are a few pictures of Secret finally healthy enough to get out in the field some:
When I see this picture it just brakes my heart that anyone could treat a living animal like this!
Sadly, on November 11, 2010 Dayna emailed me and told me that night Secret had taken a turn for the worst. The infection in her leg had been there so long with no treatment that it just set in too deep. She had to put Secret down that night. She had almost 4 weeks of love, and Dayna is just happy she was able to give her that! Below is the picture Dayna took of her a few days before she passed away.
I have decided to give a donation in memorie of Secret....and this donation is going to

If everyone just did a little something for these majestic animals (or any animal) ~ the world would be a much better place. I have made a donation to Secrets gift. Please don't worry about any gift. It is simply wonderful that you are helping.
