Robbie came into our rescue program on August 12, 2010. Robbie is one of 17 horses that survived a horrific trailer accident on the Turner Turnpike on May 18, 2010. Robbie along with 29 other horses were headed to Mexico on that horrible day, fated for slaughter. Unfortunately, 11 died instantly or had to be euthanized on scene of the wreck, 2 later died once they were transported back to the kill buyers property in Missouri. It is horrible to think that an overturned semi trailer is a blessing. But to these surviving 17 horses that horrific day is what ultimately saved their lives. These beautiful horses were given a second chance. These horses have remained in the custody of the kill buyer in Missouri until August 12th, all pictures posted are from the day of arrival into our rescue program and our Veterinary Day, which was 4 days after arrival. Thanks to HSUS for assisting us in our efforts to gain custody of these wonderful horses. It is a blessing to provide these horses a chance to be adopted and given the opportunity to be loved and someone's companion, such as many once were before being sold at a Livestock Auction in Missouri and Illinois. Many still wear their scars and wounds on them from that horrible day. Nothing about the Slaughter industry is humane. These horses not only suffered a horrible trailer wreck, but it is clear that they received little to no care while waiting at the Kill buyers to make that awful transport again. Thankfully, their horrible road to hell has ended and now we are providing them the care that they deserve, so that wonderful families can enjoy these sweet, sweet horses. It only takes a few minutes to look into these horses eyes and see the love, fear, uncertainness, and forgiveness that they have to offer. They will send you a message of thanks daily, from a simple nicker to a loving caress. Please note that the 17 horses are located in foster care. If you are interested in adopting one of these horses, please notify us, so that we can make arrangements to get that particular horse here at our facility to be seen.

Robbie is a super sweet, Sorrel, Quarter Horse, Gelding. Robbie is estimated to be 3 1/2 years of age. Robbie is super cute and very sweet. He was a bit on edge when he first arrived, but who could blame him. I can only imagine what he has been through the last several months. Since his arrival, he has calmed down considerably and has become quite the attention hound. He just needed to know love and needed to know that he can trust. We will update with Robbie's adoption status soon. Robbie has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, hoof maintenance, and teeth floating. Please consider making a donation towards Robbie's rehabilitation. We will update as he progresses with his adoption status.

Robbie has been adopted to a wonderful family in Calumet, Oklahoma. Robbie's foster family have fallen in love with Robbie. Robbie has exhibited a lot of trust and willingness to please his new family. We are thrilled that this special boy has come so far, and has the forever, loving home that he deserves.
