About 50 horses need to be adopted or they will go to slaughter. They are in Crested Butte, CO.
My Dear Horse Friends, The following photos are of a herd of horses in Crested Butte. They were found starving in June by a neighboring rancher. He opened his pastures to them and they have been eating and slowly recovering. They will be shipped to a Mexican slaughterhouse next week. Sandy Jones is adopting 2 of them on Tuesday, the 6th. She is meeting the brand inspector there and is trailering 3 of them back to Evergreen. Pam Ogle is adopting a 3rd (buckskin filly) horse to be transported in Sandy’s trailer. Many of them have ringworm, which is easily treatable . It may require some quarantine from other horses for a few weeks. Their hoof condition is pretty good.
If you know anyone interested in providing a home for any of these horses, please contact Sandy (email address below) or phone 303-550-3836. I can provide transportation for two of them if needed. Sincerely, Brooke
