Hello everyone, it’s Tawnee here. We are at the auction and there are so many horses that need help! There is a bad storm rolling through tonight and we drove through lightning and crazy rain to get here. A lot of other people didn’t brave the weather to come to the auction, but the kill buyers didn’t care. They are here tonight. The big stock trailers and semi trucks that are usually here are here again tonight.
Here are just a few of the horses here tonight for you to see. This is an older Thoroughbred that is suffering from so much rain rot he has almost no hair on his back. He is also suffering from melanoma cancer, one of the tumors is so large he has a hard time turning his neck. This sweet boy does not deserve to be dumped into the slaughter pipeline just because his health is failing.
This is a Curly horse that has extremely long hooves and is in a lot of pain. He can’t even walk. Every time he tries you can see the pain increase in his face and he stops. His friend, also with long overgrown hooves, stands next to him to comfort him. These two have been together for a long time.
This horse is young and very scared. You can see the fear in her eyes. When I stood next to her she would calm down and look to me for comfort. When I would walk away she would start whinnying and whinnying – doing her best to say “No, don’t leave me!”
In another pen a Palomino and a black horse are standing right now, waiting to be auctioned. The black horse is sick and her eyes are all goopy with puss. It’s heartbreaking.
We desperately need your help to save precious horses from loading up onto the kill trucks. The auction is starting in just a few minutes, and we can only save the horses we have funds to rescue and shelter. Our goal is 20 but we’re not there yet. Please give now, make a difference tonight!
