These horses went to slaughter today.


Just thought I would share the actual faces of the debate, and too be clear, I mean the breeding debate, not the slaughter debate.

photos from an anonymous friend who saves horses weekly from kill pens

You reallllllly need to come to Sugarcreek auction. 97% of the horses there go down to Mexico for slaughter. They don’t even have buy pens. All they’re pens are kill pens. Please help

Where is this?

This is a weird thing, but there seems to be quite a number of horsey people on tumblr, and hey, you never know.

I’m looking for this horse.

This is a horse that I used to lease and love very much. His name is Brac’n (Bracken); registered name Brac’n Rose. Sire is a stud called Big Brac. He’s 16.3hh, Thoroughbred, bay with no white markings, born in 1993. His croup is more pointy/prominent than is desirable and when he’s fit, he is one of those greyhound-y type TBs. He’s more than likely quite lame on one or both forelegs, due to joint degeneration in his pasterns. He was gelded late and has a lot of ‘studdy’ behaviours (he’s a squealer). He drinks out of pop cans if you leave them in his reach and he loves Five Alive.

He’s trained for eventing and jumpers, but due to lameness was retired to a rescue (as a leaser lacking the money to purchase and subsequently care for a lame TB, this was outside my control) which later shut down in questionable circumstances and relocated their horses in 2006 or 2007. This was the last time I saw him, despite repeated attempts to contact the owners of the rescue.

This was in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.

I realize he doesn’t have any distinctive markings and there are a million bay TBs in the world, but on the off chance, I would love to find him and know that he’s alright, if he is still alive (don’t worry, if you have him and you love him I have no desire to take him from you!).

The top photo is his passport photo. Second, circa 2004. Third, post-retirement in 2006.

If you know this horse, please let me know!!

Welcome to the horse fandom

A fellow BC person, I feel like I’ve seen this horse somewhere but can’t put my finger on it… Best of luck. Maybe try contacting local rescues?

Hmm, I will keep my eyes and ears open. BC equestrians unite lol

Okey dokey :)

Negative attitudes are gonna get us everywhere in life, clearly.

Thanks, greyface.

How did I end up this way? This is REX from Thomas’s School of Horsemanship. A trusty school horse loved by many! After all of his hard work to keep young riders safe, teaching them so many great lessons, he was sent off to face an inhumane death. SLAUGHTER.Luckily Project Sage Horse Rescue was there to rescue him. We call this fate.

Just now I saw Aidan and if I didn't live halfway across the world I'd so take him. But I know you'll find him a good home. Most of the time, when I get teary, it's because I'm happy that people like you still exist in this world. Bless you and thank you for all you're doing for those animals <3

Thank you so much.

See?  There is hope.

I know I have not posted about the rescue in a while.  Other things have gotten in the way, and I have neglected the Project Sage Tumblr.  For this, I apologize.

But today something extraordinary happened.

Brittany and her team went to New Holland Auction for the umpteenth time.  Something about a few of them just drew them in… And it was discovered that two of the horses were just dumped at the auction by local barns on Long Island… Namely The Thomas School of Horsemanship.  The two horses are the big black thoroughbred with the star, and the chestnut thouroughbred with the injection shaving mark.  They have been named Rex and Johnny, respectively.  They were faithful school horses, who taught children how to ride, and were left at the auction without a second thought… Forgotten.

Thankfully, today, Brittany and her team of volunteers rescued them.

I am not one to slander the name of any organization, but having worked for them as a camp counselor in the past, I don’t mind shaming the name of Thomas School of Horsemanship.  They throw out their horses like they’re disposable objects.  These are living beings, who dedicate their lives to their riders, and you just throw them away… Shame on you.

We also rescued a few other lucky souls.  The gray is a registerd paso fino mare named Sally.  The little skinny pony is Helen.  The dark gray Jenny donk is Maisie.  The spotted donkey is Norman.

They will all be up for adoption after a 30 day quarantine period.

Please contact Project Sage at their website: projectsagehorserescue.com or their facebook under Brittany-Project Sage.

And this is why I got my horse from a rescue rather than bought a show horse

It is with deep sorrow that I announce the passing of our dear Rosie, I had the pleasure of having her for over a year and was able to reunite her with her daughter, a story that thousands of people followed. This is not only a great emotional loss for the Project Sage family, it is a financial difficulty at a time when donations are down because of the economy. I’m asking all of you to please help with Rosie’s final costs in any way you can. After we say goodbye today, it will cost $550. to have her picked up from our farm. All donations are greatly appreciated and can be paypaled to projectsagehorserescue@gmail.com. Rest in peace sweet girl, it was an honor to have met you…
