We learned something from out last Open House—many of you are geeks! Techno geeks, science geeks, medical science geeks, and yes, even hoof science geeks. No negative connotation attached; in fact, we’re geeks, too. We discovered just how many of you were geeks when following the last Open House, many of you flooded us with calls and emails following your attendance at the presentation which covered Cece’s medical and hoof care. You wanted more; we just didn’t know how to get you more of Cece’s story.
And when it comes to Cece’s groundbreaking hoof care and management these last two years, how can you not be a geek and marvel at the technology, science, and medical science principles which were applied to literally save Cece’s life after a deformed and clubbed hoof left her unable to stand, unable to walk, and riddled with internal and external infection which could not be beat down. Veterinarians, top hoof science professors, and in fact the world’s leading expert on deformed hooves, all stated that Cece had weeks, if not days, left.
Cece—as she has her entire life—brought her fight to this battle and hence, so did we. During the course of the last year and a half, she endured having entire sections of her hoof surgically removed to expose the hidden infection, limb perfusions where catheter fed antibiotics were forced into her leg and hoof, shoes, boots, wraps, wraps, and more wraps, meds, shoes, boots, wraps, wraps, and more wraps. And she took all of this like a true fighter and trooper and yes, may have thrown a bite, nip, or kick into the mix just to remind us that yes, she was still there and present.
And now, we have a milestone to celebrate. We have defied logic, we have accomplished something that every single expert said could, would never happen. We’re not going to tell you what but a hint: Cece is naked. And yes, she is blushing. We are going to hold a raffle, the winner will get to sit in on a medical session for Cece. And for all of you geeks, you can ask all the technical, medical, and hoof science questions that you have burning to ask, and did not get the chance.
And one other thing, Cece let us in on a little secret. Apparently, Mitch leaves her each session and goes and cheats on her with another horse—a certain, all black, bad attitude, huge chip on his shoulder—horse. So, the raffle winner, if they play their cards right, may just get to see some of that, as an added bonus.
A little background on Cece's coming to Casey's:
We received a call back in 2015 from a dog rescue in southern Illinois. They were rescuing dogs from a hoarding situation and one of their staff went behind the garage and saw this paint pony tied up. We were told she was clearly in distress and her physical health was concerning to them. The dog rescue reached out to local equine rescues and because she had what was thought to be a malformed hoof, they were told she should be put down.
The local farrier they contacted said the same thing.
They then contacted Casey’s! And, yes, of course, we took her in.
Buy your raffle tickets below for a chance to be the winner for private sit-in with Cece and training session with Mitch and Prince! The Winner will be announced the end of April!
