Nut Farm Survivor: Trouper Our Miracle Foal
Hi Family Orchards Fam! Life can be really hard right now for many of us...but God is good! We invite you to experience this challenging time with us and re-live this amazing story of survival and nurture.
Our first baby foal at Family Orchards Farm had a beautiful day with momma Annabelle followed by a life-threatening metabolic crash that sent us back to the vet for a second emergency intervention. Thank you for all the prayers and kind words!
Here is the story of our epic experience with Trouper.
Whatever you may be going through during this time of crisis — illness, financial difficulty, or loss — we hope us sharing this difficult story of hope can help you too.
EDITOR'S NOTE & TRIGGER WARNING: This video contains sequences of stressed animals and humans along with medical procedures that result in a positive outcome. Our goal is not to alter the reality of these events in any way, but to edit the footage and soundtrack in a kid-friendly way which allows you to experience the moment at the same intensity that we felt — full of questions, anxiety, tension and new learning.
After reviewing the footage as a family, we chose to present this real-time documentary in two parts — with an intense cliffhanger — to share with you the feeling of suspense we were all feeling about the future of our new family member.
Do consider sharing this series with anyone feeling hopeless, weak or alone. God answers prayer — and our special needs foal is certainly proof of that!
- Aaron, Todd, Ruby...and Trouper!
