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!
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!
