Lariat came into our rescue program on January 14, 2015. Lariat came from the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office along with 11 other horses as an abandonment case. Sadly, help came too late for 2 other horses. We lost a 6 month old foal 3 days after she arrived and we found 1 dead on the property. Lariat is a Beautiful, Red Roan, Quarter Horse, Mare. Lariat is estimated to be 9 years of age. Lariat is body score of a 3. She is infested with internal/external parasites, has rain rot and is mildly anemic. Lariat is covered in ticks and possibly pregnant. Lariat is a sweet girl, but very scared. Lariat, along with the 11 other horses, haven't experienced much hands on attention. Most are not halter broke or broke to lead, but learning. It is going to take some time and patience and this beautiful herd will learn to accept love and attention. It clear that no human has been there for them in the past, and they don't understand that we are here to help. We will update as Lariat improves. Please consider making a donation towards Lariat's Rehabilitation.
