For this weekend we are leaving you with pictures of Moonlight and Goldy, in memorial. They were killed in a tragic accident on Wednesday.

Goldy was rescued from a livestock auction. She was sore and limping, she had been involved in an accident at the auction.

Back at the rescue she settled in and soon her discomfort was gone. She was adopted into a very loving home. She was such a beautiful girl!

Moonlight was also rescued from a livestock auction. He was such a big beautiful boy.

When Moonlight came to the rescue he stood at the trailer door for a few seconds and took everything in.

It wasn’t long before we learned what a neat horse he was. He had such a capacity to love and always wanted to be with people.

Tawnee fell madly in love with him, as well as everyone else here at the rescue.

All the visitors that came to the rescue fell in love with him too. He just loved to snuggle with people!

He had a kind soft eye full of love and compassion.

Truly he was a beautiful horse inside and out. He was adopted to the same person that adopted Goldy.
Early Wednesday morning Moonlight, Goldy and 3 other horses were killed in a tragic accident, along with the driver of the vehicle. Click here to read a news report.
