Rescuing horses from auctions is just part of who I am and what I do. At the age of 19 I went to an auction and ended up rescuing a horse. Over the last 16 years I have rescued thousands of horses at auctions, saving them from a brutal death in a slaughterhouse. Many of the horses were so far gone there was nothing I could do for them other than to love them and say goodbye, but the ones that make me the happiest are the ones that go on and find amazing homes. Rescuing horses from auctions is something I can’t stop doing because as long as there are horses in the slaughter pipeline exported for slaughter, I can’t turn a blind eye.
Tonight we are at an auction in Cookeville Tennessee. There are a lot of horses here tonight so far, with more coming in. We’ll rescue as many horses as we can responsibly rescue and shelter. Here are a few pictures below of some of the precious horses that will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. We can’t save them all, but for the ones we do save, it changes their entire world.
