The cavalry has arrived!

Meet "Fitzhugh Lee!"
"Fitz" for short.

Fitz, who arrived yesterday, is a 25 year old Throroughbred named after Robert E Lee's nephew, a Confederate cavalry commander. Sometime in his past, this handsome gelding suffered a jaw injury, causing a few dental abnormalities. He's had two unhealthy teeth extracted in the past few months, one a "corner incisor" which allows is tongue to slip outside his lips now and then. Fitz will probably always require more frequent dental care than most horses, but is otherwise very healthy.
Each month, TREES receives more and more calls to help equine elders like Fitz. Can you help support Fitz, Marye, or other residents of Traveller's Rest?
