Saturday night three of our rescuers were at an auction. Shari, our Oklahoma rescuer, was visiting California and enjoyed visiting the auction where she has rescued so many precious lives. The kill buyers kept glaring at her, wondering what she was doing back at “their” auction. Jim and Laura were the lead rescuers at the auction. After the auction, in the early morning, the horses were all loaded up and they hit the road.
Some of the horses were wondering where they were going, it was still so dark outside. Finally at 5:00 am they arrived at the shelter. The rescuers had worked all night to get the horses safely to the shelter.
This little guy is Armand, he is 3 years old and has some pain in his legs due to having long feet. We are having our vet give him a quality of life assessment, we fear that as he grows older and bigger that the condition may worsen.
Meet Fancy Feet, she has four white socks and a blaze. She had been buddies with a jack donkey and got separated from him at the auction. She has now become best friends with Shawna. We believe that she may possibly be pregnant as the jack was ungelded. She may have a baby mule tucked inside her belly.
We would like to thank everyone who donated to make this rescue possible. We would also like to thank our Facebook fans for helping us name the horses. Without your support this rescue would not have been possible, and these 11 precious lives would be facing a very scary, uncertain future!
