Look At Me! When you look into my eyes what do you see? Do you see the pain and abandonment I feel? I did everything right I thought, I served my owner with all my heart. I nickered at him every day when I saw him. I thought he cared about me. But this reality has hit me hard, he didn’t care! Now I stand here at a slaughter auction waiting for my fate to be sealed. Many of the horses around me are in such rough shape, some are sick, some are nothing but bones, some have open wounds and scrapes all over their bodies. It is more horrible than you can imagine but it is my reality. Men walk past me and they look at me but they look at me like I have never been looked at before. They’re sizing me up as if to figure out how much they can make off of me at the slaughterhouse. I shudder, isn’t there anyone that cares? Do you care? Would you help me? ~ A horse in the slaughter pipeline
In one week we will be attending a slaughter auction and with your help, we can save horses that have no hope. Nearly a hundred thousand horses are shipped out of the United States for slaughter every year, with your help we can make a difference to horses saving them from that horrible fate!
As soon as our volunteers arrived this morning they got busy cleaning things up. It wasn’t long before they spotted Sugar. Sugar came to us just yesterday as an owner surrender. Sugar was in need of a bath and the girls got right to work.
The girls started scrubbing her down and making her all nice and clean. She was loving every minute of it.
As you can tell she was also laughing at them. The more they cleaned the more she laughed. She was really enjoying her bath!
As the girls were giving her a bath they realized her tail needed a lot of help. It wasn’t long before they realized that she had wires and other things tangled in it. They realized it wasn’t going to all come out, and sadly had to cut the nasty tangles out.
After getting the worst of it off the girls got busy cleaning up the rest. She looked so pretty when they were all finished.
One more rub down and some love before she was turned out.
