LIVING – BARELY- IN DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS… OUR EMACIATED APRIL BUCKET FUND HORSES: THE MARKDALE 10.






I received an email from a reader, asking me to look into this situation and perhaps grant her wish that these horses become a Bucket Fund.

Here is part of her email:

I am hoping, very much, that this rescue could be a potential Bucket Fund recipient.

I have attached the heartwrenching video, exposing a hoarding/neglect situation that exceeds most I’ve ever seen.  21 horses have already perished at this woman’s farm.  15 of them in January ALONE.  The SPCA has fallen down on the job in a bad way here.  It wasn’t until this video clip was broadcast on the news, that public outcry drop-kicked them out of complacency to actually do something.

This woman was given an order to comply, was under veterinary supervision, and yet horses still dying.  The last one died just 6 days ago.  Finally, a rescue was allowed in yesterday to start taking horses out.  Not sure whether they’ll all make it…body grades right now are 0-1.5 I’ve heard.

SO I WATCHED THE NEWS VIDEO…

OMG.  The conditions were deplorable and very sad…  Here were all these horses, trapped inside stalls inside a barn – starving.  The stalls were filthy.  The horses were filthy.

Poor, emaciated faces stood clamoring for attention from the news crew, sticking their scrawny necks outside their bars, pleading at the humans…

“Anyone, someone please take us out of here and feed us, please!”

Below are some photos from the video.

You can watch the video here, but be aware that the person recording the news segment from her TV is crying throughout…

WHISPERING HEARTS HORSE RESCUE TOOK 12 OF THESE HORSES

It is true, many of the original horses died, trapped in this hideous barn.  But, some were rescued.

Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue in Haggersville stepped in to take 10.

Immediately, the vets and assistants triaged the new and very emaciated, sick horses.

Here is an intake photo of one of the horses, Prince.

I think this photo says it all…

Prince.  An emaciated Arab stud.  He is being administered to by the vet.

Prince. An emaciated Arab 6 year old TB gelding. He is being administered to during his intake at WHHR.

Prince falls and struggles... In the next photos, he rights himself.  He survived the first night.

This is Prince on the ground... he almost didn't make it the first night... his caretaker breaks down next to him.

Prince regains some strength and rights himself. So far, he has survived.

 SOME OF THE OTHER RESCUED HORSES WITH PRINCE AT WHHR…

Here are some of the other 9 horses who are all in a struggle for their lives…

This is Cary.

This is Ravenwood Cary – 16 yrs.  Arab mare.

Red, 8 year old Arab stallion

 

This is Raven.

This is Bassquette, a 15 year old Arabian mare.

 

These are Basquette and Raven... eating together in safety.  Can you imagine the relief they feel?

NEED I SHOW YOU MORE?…  CAN WE HELP THEM?

Haven’t they suffered enough at the hands of humans?  Can you imagine the horror of being stuck in stalls, starving together, unable to touch yet able to watch 21 of your herd – die.

And, (if you watched the video…) there was hay.  They could see it.

It makes me sick.  All of it.

Please help Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue help these deserving horses.
