"Cuz Im Lopin Lexie" in better days (before), and tonight, at auction as Hip 117, after spending the past year or more, half-starving in a field.
For the past few years, Heather, Lexie's former owner, has been worried sick about the whereabouts of this mare. She had to sell her as part of a divorce settlement, and always wondered where she had really ended up. Heather had been following AHR, always wondering, hoping someday she would find her here. And, she did..
For those who wonder why we pour the amount of hours into researching the horses we rescue, here's why. So the horses lost as years go by, can be found, before all hope is lost, gone forever.
Not realizing the history on Lexie, we had already arranged for the sweet mare to go to Back In The Saddle Project. But, upon confirming follower Stacey planned to rescue her, opted to send Hip 123, the tired older grey trail horse, to BITS instead -- along with Hip 116, the skinny palomino. Her older emaciated friend will join them tomorrow, for the trip back to Oroville.
Also saved tonight were Hip 115, the 10-month-old filly, and Hip 114, the registered sorrel mare. Thank you to Stephanie for opening your home to both.
More auctions to follow, every day for the next several days... No rest for AHR.
Also, we are seeking help transporting Hip 123 and 116 to their next destination, an hour south off the 99 fwy. If you can help transport the two horses tomorrow (Sunday), please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you all, and goodnight.
