Four-year-old Thoroughbred "Boomerang Lou," last raced March 2013 at Los Alamitos. Since his last race, ended up with charros in Central California. Brought to auction with deep lacerations to his gums, tongue, and beneath his chin, he's headed back down south to join Equine Racers rescue.
Nine-year-old Kentucky-bred Thoroughbred mare "Avada Kedava," by Grindstone, last raced at Golden Gate Fields in 2008. She came to auction, an unassuming, smaller mare with neglected feet and a kind temperament. Also rescued, we are working on her placement now.
10-year-old gelding "Storm Crash," by Illinois Storm, was owned by the same charros who had so radically abused Boomerang Lou. Storm, along with a paint gelding with a fresh injury exposing his skull, and a scared paint pony, were rescued for Equine Rescue Center.
The emaciated palomino mare was also rescued, set to go toBack In The Saddle Project in Oroville, but our friend and local hauler Marsha fell in love with the horse instead, and decided to adopt her!
As for the two pregnant mares, one is an older emaciated paint who has been suffering foaling pains the past few days, leading up to auction. She is heading straight to a friends ranch in Santa Clarita to foal out.
A pregnant palomino mare, not even halter broke, also very far along in her pregnancy, was also rescued. Thanks to Toby's Legacy Equine Rescue, she will also have a soft landing to have her baby.
