52 thoroughbred horses need homes. Will go to Sugarcreek this Saturday for slaughter. Gentleman died and his son wants nothing to do with them. Most broodmares are broke and some are in foal weanling, yearlings, 2 yrs and 3 yrs old most are gelded. FREE and papered. Friend of the ...deceased is trying to find homes 440-463-4288 or 440-463-4288 Barnesville, OH.
If Ferdinand, a Kentucky derby winner can be slaughtered, any horse can become food.
If you look into this subject it is a very, very sad thing; the entire process from shipping to eventual death is terrible. Unfortinately, the econony even effects this subject, as caring for a horse costs money.
I hope more people become aware of and involved in saving horses.
Some one just offered wife a free horse!
Thankfully our fence is taken down & barn full of my old tractors , car parts. Other odds & ends I can't part with..
She has been the horse owner route, boarding stable manager.
There are more things that can go wrong with them..............
Good to know they're all safe. A few years ago was part of a wreck with an overturned semi loaded with horses in a pig trailer. The horses were on their way to slaughter when it overturned. Bad wreck, some died but many others lived and were adopted. Great nowing many were saved.
