Brave Heart was recently ill and needed medical care at an equine hospital. His hospital bills totaled over $7000. Below is a synopsis of his illness as it unfolded.
We are asking everyone to send prayers for Brave Heart. He hasn't been feeling good and just had a visit from the vet. We are praying he makes a full recovery.
After many night checks Brave Heart seems to be doing slightly better. His temperate is beginning to come down. We thank everyone for there thoughts and prayers and ask for everyone to continue sending them his way.
Brave Heart has lived up to his name today as he was admitted and now being treated at Rochester Equine Clinic. We will continue to pray as things are looking very hopeful as he's being treated for a possible infection. We thank everyone for your support.
We are waiting to see changes in Brave Heart. He is still currently being treated for an infection and getting plenty of fluids. The doctors at Rochester Equine Clinic have been doing a great job at keeping him comfortable. We are just hoping to see some improvements soon. Thank you for everyone that continues to send prayers and positive thoughts.
Brave Heart is showing signs of improvement with his blood work. It was also good to see him acting more like his old self on our walk and grazing session this morning. Thank you to everyone that continues to send positive thoughts and prayers his way as we hope his improvement continues!
Brave Heart is continuing to get better. His blood work is looking almost normal and although he still has some inflammation going on it is slowly improving. We are very pleased and can't thank everyone enough for all the prayers and positive thoughts.
We are so happy that Brave Heart is finally home!! He is still being treated for his infection and being closely monitored at the rescue but we are happy with the improvement he is making and cannot wait for him to be back to 100%. Again thank you everyone for your positive thoughts and prayers. We greatly appreciate it.
Mona Jerome, Director
Bush Brook Farm was built in 1980 on 63 acres of land, to be home to a 6 year old mustang. It was a long time dream of Mona Jerome and made possible by her devoted husband Brad. It was just the beginning of something bigger and of greater importance.
Mona followed her passion for wild horses and volunteered many hours assisting contractors for the Bureau of Land Management at New England Satellite Adoptions, participated in yearly wild horse workshops offered by least Resistance Training Concepts throughout the west, and learning about the wild horse from those with many years of experience. In addition she has attended and participated in clinics with nationally known trainers.
In 2002, with the encouragement and help of Brad, Mona founded Ever After Mustang Rescue, Training and Education Center. Since that time it has been a refuge for unwanted, neglected and abused mustangs. With nearly 30 years of experience Mona has facilitated the healing of mind and body, restoring the horse to the proud, intelligent creature he is.
Education continues with every horse we work with and continuing to attend workshops and training clinics.
The rescue places an average of 2-3 horses a year to approved homes. The success of these placements can be viewed on the Alumni page (coming soon).
The Rescue Center is also host to several yearly clinics, workshops and training programs for horse owners and any interested parties. See our Events page fmi.
