Rescued early last summer from the Ontario Livestock Auction, this then-9 yo Thoroughbred broodmare had produced one foal, before she was unceremoniously dumped at an auction that specializes in selling goats and pigs -- not horses..
With an open offer to foster from Catherine, we were able to save this unwanted girl, and were pleased to hear shortly thereafter... Catherine and Pride were in love! So, adoption it was
Rescuing from livestock auctions is one of the riskiest ways to save a horse. No information, no time, just a glimpse as the horse enters the ring, with seconds to decide. We're happy we made that split second decision, narrowly saving this granddaughter of In Excess from slaughter.
And, as we always say, nothing beats the love of a Thoroughbred mare
Happy Valentine's Day, Catherine and Pride!!!
