Rolly Polly

Rolly Polly came into our rescue program on August 12, 2010. Rolly Polly is one of 17 horses that survived a horrific trailer accident on the Turner Turnpike on May 18, 2010. Rolly Polly 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.

Rolly Polly is a super sweet, Sorrel, Haflinger, Mare. Rolly Polly is estimated to be 8 years of age. She is a healthy little girl. I think that she could gain weight on the air she breathes. She is super cute and very sweet. She can be a bit aloof from time to time, but I believe with the right amount of time and attention, she will get over that. Rolly Polly stands about 13.2 hands tall. We will evaluate her under saddle soon and update her adoption status at that time. Rolly Polly has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, hoof maintenance and teeth floating. Please consider making a donation towards Rolly Polly's rehabilitation. We will update as she progresses with her adoption status.
