You did it AGAIN! This little colt was SAVED through The Keep Them Off The Truck Fund from a kill pen! Meet CC!

You all did it again!  THANK YOU for donating to the Keep Them Off the Truck Fund.  Last weekend, I saw this photo and asked if we could sponsor him out of the kill pen.  And we did!

He’s a little, skinny colt with no obvious heath issues other than severe neglect and malnutrition – and some depression, which is understandable.

But now he is in the vet hospital in Texas, healing and hanging out with horses more his size!

(To be honest, it is so difficult for me to see these videos of ‘straight to slaughter’ kill pens.  So many horses… so many, many horses.  How to choose with limited funds?  Who to be saved? I cannot do it.  Usually, I let the people on the ground choose who they feel is best.  But this time, I happened to see this video.)

This is the picture I saw and sent back with an arrow asking about this little one… I wish we could save and house them all.


He was named “Close Call” – so “CC” for short.

I’m told that he is doing as well as possible considering how he was ignored and not eating in the large ‘straight to slaughter’ pen with the larger horses hogging all of the food.

Here is a little video of CC at the hospital with his new friends.  Everyone was saved from this slaughter pen… and they are all trying their best to recover.  But at least they have each other.
