Ladies and Gents at the WA Feedlot

Dumping older horses at an auction and thus entering them into feedlots and slaughterpipeline makes my blood boil. For gods sake people, have some respect for your elders, be it two legged or four. These ladies and gents don't deserve this. All we can do is post and spread the news. They are too far away from us and we are currently over booked (and turning seniors away).

Description

Alden is a senior who was said to have been used to give wagon rides. He is in need of some groceries, but otherwise looks like he is in overall decent shape for his age. He stands approx 15hh and didn't have any visible issues that I saw besides needing to get up to weight. He did not appear to have any problems eating hay and was up and eating with the rest of the horses at the feed bunk. He is gentle on the ground and deserves a nice retirement or lighter use home.

Description

Almond is said to be 25 years old and was used as a pet. I am inclined to believe he is broke to ride from the photos I have seen with him and a rider. He is 15+hh and came to the lot needing weight. He is sweet, easy to handle, picks up his feet, and seems like a very good natured and kind horse. He is bonded to a dark bay gelding he came in with, Amos.

Description

Amos is a very sweet gelding who is said to have been used for cattle. He should be well broke to ride, patient, and tolerant. He has saddle marks and looks to be sound from what I could see, and in decent condition, besides an eye issue with one eye. He is bonded to Almond and came in with him. Amos stands 15+hh and has a sweet and mellow personality. He has an eye issue that is causing his eye to run that was treated at the beginning of January, but I'm not sure if anything was done since. He had no problem with me touching his face so he should be pretty tolerant of treatment, and was a well behaved horse overall.

Description

Addy is a very friendly mare who just seems like a good 'ol horse babysitter type. She is broke to ride and is safe for a beginner to handle. I don't know the last time she was ridden and she may need a tune up, but this sweet mare is worth taking a chance on and bringing home. I saw no lameness issues or other issues. She has roaning through her flanks and tail head indicative of a rabicano coat pattern. She stands 15+hh.
