Big Heart Ranch's precious wild mustang, Tennie, is undergoing sugery resulting from colic and will need extensive medical care and rehabilitation in the folowing months.
At birth Tennie had a one in ten chance of living and beat all of the odds to become a friend and guide as well as a beacon of light to anyone struggling to find their way through life’s challenges.
Tennie was born without sight and has perservered through his life, touching thousands of Big Heart visitors and most recently inspiring the blind communtiy from the Braille Institute.
Tennie has a huge heart and spends every day sharing his love and courage with people who are struggling. He is no stranger to overcoming tremendous obstacles. Tennie barely escaped being slaughtered before birth, only to be rescued and born without eyes and suffer from pneumonia and a leg that wouldn’t hold him. From his first breath, Tennie was determined to beat the odds and embrace life with courage and joy that inspires anyone lucky enough to cross his path , including countless individuals without sight whom Tennie has snuggled with, walked a path with, shared magic and joy with and inspired endless new experiences with.
We ask for your support as we face this crisis for one of our most beloved animals at Big Heart Ranch.
Tonight Tennie is fighting for his life. He is in surgery for a severe colic and needs your help! Please give what you can and help Tennie survive!
