6:39AM UPDATE: WE DID IT!! THE HORSES ARE SAFE! ALL FUNDS THAT COME IN NOW WILL GO TOWARDS THEIR FOOD FOR THE NEXT DAYS! FABULOUS!!!!!!!
Well, this awful situation came to my attention…
I just hate it when I see this. Don’t you?
Three Trusting equines. One broke to ride. The others friendly and halter broke. Gentle and honest.
And they all ship out November 1st. Tomorrow.
I am so upset. Here, this 12 year-old mare gave up her freedom, let herself be trained, and now she is being led to slaughter.
The donkey – the same.
Look at this gorgeous and fit Kiger cross He is only 3! He’s been gelded, he’d friendly and halter broke.
All healthy, trained horses – waiting to ship.
However, we can help!
There is a Rescue waiting (Heavenly Horse Haven) to shelter, nourish, vet them and find homes. We just need to get them there!
The fees to save the donkey is $200, the mare $425 and the gelding $390.
They also need funds for Coggins ($75/each) and $500 total for transport to safety.
LET’S HELP THESE THREE!!! GOT ANY EXTRA CANDY MONEY? STARBUCKS CHANGE?
Let’s help! This we can do! Every little bit adds up, especially for the donkey – such a small fee to save a life! We could potentially save them all.
We have a ONE DAY Bucket Fund for these three. Prayers and good thoughts welcomed. Donations, too! THANK YOU and the website will have a live thermometer showing our progress! Click here to watch it grow!

Thank you, Doug. You are an angel.
It was a pleasure to deliver the mare and donkey to Heavenly Horse Haven last night. They are very friendly and unloaded with nothing more than a rope layed over their neck. They are now in loving hands and will receive the care and attention every animal deserves. They made out very well. The gelding is headed to an adoptor in Idaho. Hope he has his winter coat going.
Thank you to all that donated to save these three lucky animals. They will be spoiled here with us and eventually find forever new loving homes. Gina/heavenly Horse Haven Founder
Not again… a donkey at the Fallon feedlot? When I rescued Gus from there last year I really hoped it was a one-time occurrence. Who would dump a donkey (or any animal, come to that) a a feedlot? Wish we could dump the owners at a feedlot and turn our backs on THEM! Anyway, here’s my contribution. I wish it could be more…
Even though I have a ton of horses in my area needing help, this just sickens me. I wish I was closer and could go and get them myself, but with a willing rescue nearby – I encourage my friends to donate a little to save these lives.
I’m donating. I hate these stories! And that this stuff happens all the time!
Thanks for letting us know.
