This got so out of hand. A human thought he could let a wild mustang herd live ‘naturally’ in an unnatural setting. They were cooped up on insufficient acres and bred indiscriminately. The youngsters are malnourished and half of the size they should be. All the mares are pregnant and suffering. Everyone is unhealthy. Most have a body score of under 1. There wasn’t enough food… and all are suffering because the human mismanaged their care.
Luckily, this herd was seized and is now under the care of three rescues helmed by KHEART, Kansas Horse Education, Advocacy and Resource Team. (KHEART Member Rescues:
Rainbow Meadows Equine Rescue and Retirement, Inc., Shooting Star Equine Rescue, Inc., and Hope in the Valley Equine Rescue and Sanctuary, Inc.)
Please, let’s help right this wrong. These mustang mares are all pregnant and in deplorable condition. Last year’s babies are tiny and haven’t grown property. All are desperate for groceries and skin remedies. The malnourished horses all need what food provides.
44 are in holding at $11/horse per day – this is a huge burden to the county. Nine are in special intensive care to help boost their vigor. The skinny, tiny weanlings and yearlings are being watched and monitored while their re-feeding programs take shape.
Please, help us help this horribly mismanaged herd come back to health and be prepped for future adoption.
