Tawnee was heading off to a horse auction. She found it comforting that the operators want the names of all the killer buyers as they assured Tawnee they will not let them bid. We are still concerned about horse traders. Sitting the audience Tawnee heard some people talking about drugging horses you buy there, and then selling the drugged horse to someone you don't like. Definitely not in the best interest of the horse! We appreciate that this auction is trying to make efforts to take cautionary steps against killer buyers. Time will tell.
Kathy, Aimee, April and Larry headed out early Sunday morning to pick up a horse that was being surrendered. Their notes are: "Regent is a 24 year old Arabian. He hasn't been ridden in 2 years. Shown horsemanship for 10 years and ridden western. Original owner since he was 6 months old. Due for shots next month. Was wormed and feet done 3/2010. Owner had to surrender due to personal injuries to self. Regent is a good all around horse and just needs a refresher."
Regent was happily waiting in the barn as it was pouring rain outside.Soon the trailer was there for him and he had to brave the rain, muddle puddles and wet hair to make it in the trailer for the ride back to the rescue.
