Many horses and ponies are shipped to slaughter every year, with most of them never getting a second chance. Auctions don’t care what size, training, breed, gender or anything about the horses, they are just ready to get the horses sold and out. This was almost the case for Ida. Our rescue team saw Ida in a pen at the auction and they knew she had to be saved. Ida wasn’t as skinny as some of the other horses but she did need training. Thanks to support from people like you we were able to outbid the kill buyers and rescue her.
After training Ida was ready to be adopted. On October 14th we had an adoption event and a lot of people came looking for their new horse. It wasn’t long before Ida’s potential family fell in love with her! Ida’s new mom adopted her for her three-year-old. It was a very happy day for Pearl when her mom arrived home that night with her new forever friend.
Pearls smile says it all! They will both be showing in horse shows next year and are doing amazing together! We couldn’t be more happy for these two!
There are many other horses and ponies just like Ida waiting for someone to come and save them. Please make a donation right now to help save more horses just like Ida. We will be going to an auction in a few days, we have raised enough funds to save 3 horses from the slaughter auction. We really need your support.
