WE SAVED ANOTHER! Meet Baby FRED!






I received a call last week from ASIAB.  They were in Texas at the kill auction, trying to save as many as possible.  (Thank horsegods for those who can actually go to a kill lot and make those choices… .)

They asked if our KEEP THEM OFF THE TRUCK FUND had enough donations to rescue a pinto baby who was in the ‘straight to slaughter’ pen.  I said, “OF COURSE!”.

Thanks to you all, Baby Fred has made a soft landing.  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

BABY FRED in the kill pen. He had 3 auction tags on his rump.

HIS STORY

All we know is that he had 3 auction tags on his rump.  That means that he had already been run through three auctions.  He was either purchased three times or traded three times…  This poor baby had been worked-over and stuck with too many bigger horses in stressful conditions.  It is a marvel that he came through all of that without major damage.  He is skinny and wormy, but other than that, the vet said he is fairly healthy!  Probably 9-10 months old.

Right now, Baby Fred is in quarantine.  However, the girls gave him a makeover!

It is hard to believe that this pretty boy wasn’t adopted into a family.  Instead, he was traded three times and AFTER ENOUGH MONEY WAS MADE ON HIM, he was stuck in the straight to slaughter pen.

Humans can be so awful – like putting Fred in the slaughter pipeline… and they can be SO GOOD – like saving Baby Fred.

Hopefully, he will regain all of his vigor and be adopted to a loving family very soon.

THANK YOU ALL!!!!

A brief but lovely update with Cream Puff!






Cream Puff is the first horse we saved using the Keep Them Off of the Truck Fund!

Below are her first photos when she was in the ‘direct to ship’ pen and the following day after she was rescued.  I’m not sure why she was in the direct to ship pen.  She was skinny with bad feet,  but that’s about it.  She wasn’t sick.

*The ‘direct to ship’ pen is where the horses are not even run through the auction; they are instead just purchased by their weight, put in the pen and loaded onto the slaughter trucks.  Usually the horses in this pen are sick or injured or skinny and they wouldn’t have any chance of being purchased by anyone in the auction.  They have no value other than their meat cost.

All Seated in a Barn found Cream Puff in the straight to ship kill pen. They desperately called and asked if we could help rescue Cream Puff as she would load in the morning.  We said, YES!

And thanks to you, we were able to save Cream Puff!

This is Cream Pull when she was in the kill pen and the next day after being saved. She was counted to be loaded on the truck the next morning.

CREAM PUFF NOW!  … a few weeks later.

Cream Puff has made it through quarantine and spent some time in the equine hospital in Texas.  The vets couldn’t find anything wrong with her besides long feet, starvation and neglect.  The vets said she was approximately 10 years-old and that her feet should be able to be rehabbed with several trims.

Cream Puff was brought from Texas to California last week… and today, Cream Pull had a lovely spa day at ASIAB.

isn’t she pretty?!  And she looks so proud!!

THANK YOU ALL for helping save this lovely mare who has years of life left – thanks to YOU!

Cream Puff today after her spa day at ASIAB. She looks so proud!
