They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we are going to mostly let the pictures do the speaking this blog. It was a huge auction rescue day, and 1 horse went to his forever home.
Moto Moto was loaded up to head to his new forever home before the auction. After he was in the trailer Tawnee and Jaime headed off towards the auction.
On the way, since we mentioned that we had not had many flat tires, Tawnee noticed pieces of tire flying off the trailer.
The tricky part was, pieces of the flat tire had actually ripped the wheel well into the tire.
With some heaving and hoing
, the lug nuts were loosened.
Then Jaime took action on the wheel well and started whacking it back into place. Slowly it got bent away from the tire.
Then the spare tire was put on, the lugnuts
were tightened, and off they went.
They finally arrived at Moto Moto’s
new home. His adopter had to show off Smokey, who she had adopted previously. He is doing great and is a beautiful boy.
She is tickled pink to have Moto Moto
as a permanent
addition to her family.
Then it was off to the auction. Right away Tawnee
and Jaime noticed there were a lot of horses and not a lot of buyers. There were 83 horses there today! A woman walked up to Tawnee
and handed her a $500 check. She said “I read your blog every day, I wanted to meet you for mothers day.” Wow, thank you so much for your generosity Jan! As the bidding continued, more and more horses just kept coming in, and they were almost all going for $50-$100. We were planning on rescuing 8-10 horses, but the need was far too great. There were just not a lot of people wanting to buy horses. If a horse does not sell for $50 or more, it is passed out no sale. About 8 of the horses were $50 that we rescued today. By the end of the auction 26 horses were lucky enough to be heading to the rescue. Enjoy their pictures! More details will be coming soon on the available page.
