Sweet life ahead for Lollipop

IN JUNE, The Daily Examiner published an article about a mare named Lollipop who was dumped at Whiteman Creek Rd.

Local woman Julia Smith took the mare in before discovering Lollipop needed a $2500 operation to remove an ingrown tooth which was causing her pain.

To give Lollipop a new lease on life, local fundraising events were organised to raise the money for her operation.

More than $1000 was raised and The Daily Examiner is happy to report local vet Oliver Liyou agreed to operate on the mare while the money was still being raised.

Dr Liyou successfully performed Lollipop's operation earlier this month.

The locals who have taken Lollipop into their hearts are raising another $600 to cover the costs of the operation.

A raffle is being held at Dr Liyou's Equine Veterinary Dental Services at 51 Duncans Lane, Clarenza at 9.30am, August 30. 

Prizes include a beautiful grooming kit donated by Lamby Lodge.
