half-a-lesbian:

There are fewer than 820 Icelandic goats left on the planet, and nearly half that population will be slaughtered in less than a month when the Haafell goat farm is foreclosed upon. This species is in a fragile state after suffering from a severe population decrease, and if the money isn’t raised to save the farm, their already small number will be reduced even further.
There is an IndieGoGo page set up in the farm’s honor, and they are only halfway to their goal with 18 days left. There are a ton of great perks available, many of which come from the farm itself. If you can, please donate.

This is a worthwhile cause that I hope people will take an interest in and support if they can

The horses are home safe and munching, according to my mom, who just sent me this picture of Glæta settling in.  She says they look good and Glæta and Thór are looking much better.  Wish I could be with them instead of in the city.  School :/

Glæta’s bloodwork supports the tick fever diagnosis
We’re all glad it’s not something more dangerous

Monday September 22nd // Filed under: we only ran her bloodwork under the fairly safe assumption that she and thor have the same thing,

Boost!  I think the picture is just an extremely awkward angle as well, as i’ve  heard that these poor old guys are actually somewhat decent horses!  Look at those hooves :(  This is what irresponsible breeding does - it’s the horses who suffer the consequences, in the end.  Let’s get these boys safe!!

Apparently 2 of the following 3 mares just lost their promised bids, less than 2 days before the auction :(  Can anyone help these girls out??

This brown mare is called Skeifa, and she’s sired by a first prize stallion called Segull who scored 8.29!  

The two red mares, Pandra and Elska, are 9 and 10 years old, perfect ages for riding horses.  If we can’t find bidders for them, it is very likely that they will be slaughtered.  They are probably very confused and frightened and you can see how bad their hooves are, these girls are in rough shape.  They deserve better, let’s get them out of there!  

Please boost this, ESPECIALLY if you are in Canada.  This whole situation makes me sick, these poor horses..

WONDERFUL news, everyone - the horses ALL got homes.  All 12 of them. Thanks to everyone who shared this and helped out :)  12 very lucky horses went to safe, loving homes today, and maybe we helped make it happen!

When the vet drew blood from Glæta, I had a flashback to Critter’s euthanasia, so much so that I almost threw up. And then it happened again, when she did Thór.

GLÆTA JUST ATE AN APPLE. That’s her favorite food, and she’s been refusing them since yesterday so I think she is feeling better and the medicine is working :)
