2008 Paint Gelding
Formally know as #5727, this poor horse had no name, no history, but an amazing story to tell.
Early in October 2015, we were able to save another slaughter bound horse. Through a massive combined effort of many rescues and online social media communities, we found out about #5727 , a 14hh paint gelding with cracked feet and a mane full of burrs. He was owned by a Kill Buyer but was being pulled aside, along with 10 other horses. Even though our facilities were full at the time, we knew we had to do something. We secured a place at a Quarantine Facility in PA until we could pick him up, and therefore, we were able to step in and save him. So many people were involved just to save this one horse… one number…number #5727.
We affectionately called him Oreo due to his markings and he is just as sweet as Oreos come. He is approximately 8 years old. Oreo came to the farm along with his new friend Charlie, in December 2015. He is progressing well in his retraining and now W/T/C under saddle. We have also taken him out on trails and several off the farm field trips.
Update: Right on the heels of Roman’s announcement, we have more good news to share with all of you. Oreo has found his forever home and has formally been adopted.
