Please check these horses out. I read in one of the posts on this forum that some of the horses are being unloaded from one trailer and loaded into another trailer right away. Some are not even getting a chance. I feel so desperate and yet, there's nothing I can do.
There's currently a 25 year old molly mule standing in the pen. She has until tomorrow if someone wants to rescue her. The logistics are impossible for us to do anything.
I know there is a feedlot about an hour from the Sanctuary but I don't know how they operate. I did finally figure out where they are located and may do a driveby. However, these horses aren't the ones standing in the trailers being shipped directly to slaughter, at least not yet.
I grumble about the people who tell me they cant' go to auctions because it upsets them. If you can't handle that, then you probably shouldn't handle looking at the pictures and faces of these horses/mules/donkeys that have their fate sealed already.
If you look at the pictures, these are the faces of slaughter. Only one or two that are old, none that are lame, none that are blind. Young, healthy horses.
I feel so desperate because there's nothing I can do. We can't bring any more senior horses in to keep them from such a fate. All I can do is share and ask that you share as well. the more people see the faces of slaughter, the more people will understand that these are lives at stake, not just a used up machine that no one wants. These are animals that do have feelings.
If you can help, please do. If you can't directly help, please spread the word.
