Tuesday our staff was moving Hidalgo and Scarlet out of the round pen. They had been in quarantine since the auction to make sure they were doing OK.
Hidalgo got to meet Lady Lacy, she informed him that everything is ok now and he is safe, he will never have to go to an auction again.
Bodie is a very lucky horse and does he have a story to tell! This boy was sent through an auction, probably by a person telling themselves he was going to get a great home. He was instead bought by a kill buyer and taken to a kill pen. Bodie’s rescuer wanted to save a horse from slaughter, and she found herself surfing the desperate faces of horses standing in a kill pen in Kaufman, TX. His rescuer, after contacting the poster of the video, inquired of the dark bay standing quietly in the back of the other 20 or so horses in the pen. She was told that that horse was not posted because bays and sorrels don’t get pulled. Poor Bodie was never even posted for rescue because of his “ordinary” color. She asked the poster how long he had. She replied that he had about ten minutes, the truck had just pulled up. On May 14th he was pulled from the kill pen and began his journey to get out of TX. Bodie’s rescuer sent him to us so he would be able to find his forever home. Maybe that home is yours?
Thank you all so much for your support of our rescue efforts!
