Hi All...another crisis situation needs us!
Mares and foals need our help NOW! They will be arriving to the kill pen in the next 2 days. Mares will be shipped to slaughter on Tuesday. The KB shoots the foals.
Lynnette Hummell with Dancing Hooves Rescue in Port O' Connor, Texas is trying to save mares and their babies from being sent to slaughter. The kill buyer has purchased 100 mares, foals and stallions from a Quarter Horse breeder going out of business. There are 12 mares with foals. I can only imagine that the other mares are pregnant. :( She originally was attempting to just save the babies because of lack of funds to purchase the mares. I encouraged her to try and save both the mare and foal. . We are estimating each pair will cost $300. He hasn't confirmed price with her yet. We are trying to raise funds to save as many as possible. Our group will be offering a foster home to one of the pairs, but they still need fosters and homes for the others.
$3600 needed to buy all 12 mares with babies. $784 has been raised so far.
Fundraising Goal to save all of them...$2800.
We need donations to keep these mares and foals safe!!!
Any dollar amount will help us save their lives...$5, $10, $20, $50, $100.....

"Baby horses in need of rescue.....
At the moment we are crazy busy trying to save what might be more than a dozen foals. The kill buyer bought about 100 head of horses, broodmares, some of them with foals at their sides. So we are trying to come up with some donations and especially some foster homes that can handle a foal that needs bottle feeding. The kill broker won't put foals on the truck because they won't make him any money. So he pulls them from their mothers as the mothers are loaded onto the truck. Then if they do not have somewhere to go he shoots them and buries them on his property. So we are working hard right now."
Basically this guy sells horses into Mexico, where they are slaughtered. it's bad.
If any of you know of someone who can help please pass this along to them and have them contact me. We only have a day or two to save the foals before they are killed. They are currently in Abilene, TX, but we will go get them for anyone who wishes to adopt!!! Please help if you can."
