Update - 9/24/07 @ 9:30pm! Bow's baby was breech and she was in labor for nearly two hours before the vet arrived and delivered the baby alive! A true miracle...she is a gorgeous, tiny, dark spot but she needs your prayers. She was born without a tail or anus. We are taking her to UT Vet Hospital in the morning. This baby wants to live. The vet was amazed that she was still alive and we were too. Bow is doing fine and loves her baby who she thinks is just perfect. A big thank you to our wonderful vet, Dr. Greg Harris!!!!

Update 9/25/07 @ 10pm - Bow and Pony-Tailed Lass are at UT Vet Hospital in Knoxville. The prognosis is good. Her anus is going to be able to be repaired with an operation but they hear a slight heart murmur. Her heart will be evaluated further tomorrow to see if she is strong enough for the operation on Thursday. Stay tuned for updates and keep those prayers coming!

Update - 9/28/07: Bow and Lass are home. They will be returning in three weeks for the surgery. The vets wanted her newborn skin to be more mature before they operate. You can see them on our live streaming barn cam now!

Update - 11/02/07: The vet hospital in Knoxville just called us and scheduled Pony-Tail's surgery for November 6th. The vet that is doing the surgery is Dr. Blackford. The retired vet that is an expert in this kind of surgery that is coming in to assist in the surgery is Dr. Krahwinkle. Everyone say a prayer for Pony-Tail. I am sure she is going to come out of the surgery with flying colors!

Pony-Tailed Lass Update - 11/09/07 @ 10:34am: PTL is out of surgery!! She is up and nursing. She will stay at UTK until Tuesday for observation and is expected to be able to come home on Tuesday! The vet that did the surgery is Dr. Blackford. The retired vet that is an expert in this kind of surgery that advised Dr Blackford about the surgery was Dr. Krahwinkle.

Update 11/13/07 @ 8am: Pony-Tailed Lass has gone back in for surgery this morning. They are going to remove a piece of tissue between where her colon stopped and the new hole the surgeon made on her first operation. This may cause scar tissue to completely block her passage but as it is now the tissue is making the opening too small for her to poop normally. If scar tissue forms they will do a third operation and put her back basically the way she was. Please keep Pony-Tail in your prayers!

11/19/07: Pony-Tail is home from her operation and so far it is a complete success!

Update 12/09/07: Pony-Tail is continuing to do well. She is going for her check up next week when we schedule her visit back to the vet school in Knoxville. You can see her on our barn cam occasionally as she has free access to all four cams now.

12/12/07: Pony-Tail's check-up at the University of Tennessee Vet School today was a good one.

1/02/08: Pony-Tail's final checkup at the University of Tennessee Vet School was today and she received a clean bill of health and was pronounced well. She does not have to go back to the vets unless complications arise later down the road!

9/24/08: Today is PTL's 1st birthday! We are having a party! Join us in person in the barn or on-line on barn cam #1 at 4:30pm!!

Here is a video of the breach delivery compliments of our friend, Donna Greenlee, on marestare.

Half Ass Acres Pony-Tailed Lass needs our help. Her miraculous birth was seen by many of us on Mare Stare the night of September 24th, 2007. The prayers of so many helped this precious little girl that night and more help is needed with her expensive surgery. All donators will receive a refrigerator magnet of Pony-Tailed Lass.
