We got a great update on Bayo. His mom loves riding him all around and he’s the best boy for her. We rescued Bayo from a Nevada slaughter auction and we are so happy we were able to save him from that horrible fate and find him such a great home.
One by one they were sedated in our special padded chute and headed off to sleepy land. Most of the stallions were never handled before, a few of the older studs were haltered trained, but all of the youngsters have no clue about the halter. These are not wild horses like Mustangs, but they are unhandled Quarterhorse type horses.
Back in the surgery room our staff and vet kept working hard on getting the stallions gelded. Pistol had a large older wound on his side. The vet cleaned it up and reports that it was at least a month old.
The newly gelded horses would slowly wake up, seeming to be confused about what had happened. We wished we could tell them they were okay. It was a very busy day with all the geldings, Friday morning we finished gelding the last 2 stallions and they are all ready for adoption!
Thursday Storm got adopted, we are so happy for him and his new dad. They are going to be great buddies.
Sunday started off with a lot of trailers in the parking lot.
Thank you all for your support and a special “Thank you!” goes to each person who opened their hearts and homes and adopted a rescued horse.
