I can finally sleep!
Now here is a short synopsis of what I have been doing lately and I would like to impose on everyone to please pass this story around as much as possible. Go to http://www.beautysequinerescue.org/ click on our horses, then rehab and read the story of ladybug. Donate through paypal or snail mail if you are able and please sign the guestbook. The owner of this horse actually had the nerve to sign the guestbook, her name is Amber and you'll see her entry there.
The picture is after the mare was finally negotiated away from this neglectful hoarder and her ear was removed. Notice her weight also
Finally....12 DAYS after this mare was attacked by dogs and the owner did nothing....yesterday the mare was finally saved. I tried buying her, bribing this crazy woman, anything to get that horse away from her. I have had people tell me to leave this woman and her beloved horse alone......I saw the mare for the first time on Dec 11, the attack happened supposedly Dec 3 and Dec 14 along with some law enforcement, the mare was brought to a safe haven and is getting medical attention. She lost the ear and this picture is the least gory one so I didn't make anyone sick.....I'm just on cloud nine because I just spent an hour with the mare!!! The owner actually said she would only let the mare go if I never saw the mare or had anything to do with her.....what a freakin' moronic woman!!! This mare got out but that lady still has more horses just as thin AND a dozen or so skinny dogs still on her property. I have not slept in days working on getting this terrorist holding the mare hostage to let her go. At one point she almost sold me the mare for $300 then upped it to $500, then it was a thousand as of Monday. When I went to viisit the mare, I gave the rescue where she is, the $300 and I'm going to see again on Friday and hopefully I can raise some more money for her care. If anyone has even a dollar to send please go to http://www.beautysequinerescue.org/ and donate through paypal and or snail mail. I want to rename the mare..her former owner called her ladybug and she's got way too much heart and just so sweet....I like Angelica but not sure. Anyone with fundraiser ideas, let me know.
I'm going back tomorrow, Dec 18 and taking a friend who is donating also. She's close enough that she wanted to meet the mare and she was also very helpful with dealing with the county officials of Dixie County Florida.
God bless everyone this holiday season. Safe rides and I hope to have an update. I know my blog is about judging horse shows and at the shows we never see things like this. This is my first time dealing with such low life horse owners and such a neglected pitiful animal. If all you can do is sign their guestbook and follow the story as it is chronicled there, that is greatly appreciated too. You can also cross post this to anyone and if someone can get it on Fugly, please do. If you're blog is not of this topic, consider posting it anyway. I'll give the mare a thousand hugs for everyone who is praying and sending her cyber well wishes!
http://www.beautysequinerescue.org/ Remember, read her story under rehab horses and please, SIGN the guestbook and tell 'em I sent ya! If you can donate, that is hugely appreciated. Everything, even notes are greatly appreciated and all are read.
PS I want to rename the mare Angelica and I hope she will eventually live on my little farm here with my big one eyed thoroughbred, my 42 yo paint and my baby of 10, Belle.
