People that work at slaughter houses, own "kill pens", drop horses off at kill pens and people that drop horses off at slaughter houses or kill pens should be the ones killed. They are just twisted freaks with issues. And they said they people didn't know the horse was pregnant. The horse was very far into her pregnancy so I think you would KNOW! It's like oh wow she just looks a little fatter today. That is just sick!!!!!! Oh my god! Good luck little colt!

What a fantastic rescue :)

I'm so glad she was rescued! I wish the previous owners would have known that there ARE people who will gladly rescue their horses..I wish more people knew that before dropping off their horse at a kill pen.

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay,
he'll listen to me any day~♥~

An update on this amazing story...

I thought that you all might enjoy an update on these two...

Both were given a clean bill of health shortly after arriving. The mare (who has been named Faith) is very sweet and a fantastic mama! We think that she may have belonged to an Amish farm and is quite well broke. She will likely be a wonderful riding horse and will begin some light work soon now that her baby is becoming more independent. The colt (who is called Spirit) is such a fun little guy! He frolics and plays and is very comfortable with the volunteers at the farm. And boy do his legs go on for miles! He will be a tall, handsome boy when he's grown.

If you would like to know more about the rescue, please check out our facebook page at: Day Dreams Farm Therapy and Rescue | Facebook
