This big guy was rescued with our other draft! He is bigger boned, but stands at 16.1 hh. He also came with a slight lameness which is probably why he was dumped. He was used as a cart horse as well as riding horse. He is underweight and needs some TLC.
Our new draft was rescued from the North Texas Feedlot. He was an old cart horse and stands at over 17 hands. He was dumped to slaughter possibly due to lameness or age. He is getting all vet care needed currently! He came in with a respiratory infection, bad feet and slight lameness. He is so sweet and well mannered.
King is our newest addition rescued from the Bowie Auction Pen! He is a 3 y/o OTTB who ran his last race in July 2020 where we believed he bowed both front tendons. He will need extensive rehabilitation & therapy for his bowed tendons. He is currently at the vet for quarantine & vetting, then he will move to my vets sports medicine & rehabilitation center for a few months. His treatment will not be cheap, however with it his prognosis looks good! I only met him briefly and he was an absolute puppy dog. He wanted love & was very sweet.
We rescued Nala from the Bowie Auction Pen in late June 2020. She came with a group of horses brought in from a neglect case. She was a body score 1/10 & has already gained 200 lbs in just 90 days! She is only 8 years old & extremely docile with the kids. She can be pushy & impatient, however she is improving exponentially with training! She has yet to be evaluated under saddle as these past few months were focused on getting her healthy.
Simba is a 16.2 hh 16 y/o thoroughbred rescued with Nala from the Bowie Auction Pen in late June 2020. Due to his roached back, no one was showing interest in him I bailed him while picking up Nala. He was a body score 1/10 & has already gained over 200 lbs in the under 90 days! He is extremely docile and good with the kids, but can be pushy on lead as he knows his size. We are working on his ground manners. He has yet to be evaluated under saddle as these past few months were focused on his health!
