Moon Gets a Second Chance!

Moon is a precious 18 year old pony. He was living near Dixon, WY and though his owners were kind-hearted, they allowed his hooves to grow a bit too long over a period of years.

This type of growth can be deadly for horses and ponies. It can cause issues with their tendons, founder, or they can grow to the point in which the horse can no longer get up to walk.

Moon is lucky, his owners were kind enough to give him up willingly knowing that it was in his best interest. The community watched this little horse knowing he needed help, but did not know where to turn. Thanks to Christi Chapman and other local residents, Denkai was able to step in and help.

We need aid in covering Moon's care (dental work, hoof trimming, medication) and transport costs now totaling $500.00. Even a $10 contribution helps tremendously.
