Seth came into our rescue program on August 9, 2011. Seth came from the Stephens County Sheriff's Office. Seth along with 14 other horses were severly starved and neglected in Marlow, Oklahoma. Sadly, one of the horses seized by Stephens County died within 48 hours of the seizure at the Vet Clinic, due to the extreme neglect she had suffered. The remaining 14 horses are currently in our care and being rehabilitated. Seth is a Beautiful, Black/White, Paint, Stud. He is estimated to be 5 years of age. He is super sweet and loves attention. He is extremely emaciated, body score of a 1,and infested with internal/external parasites. Seth is a sweet boy and very well mannered. He has a long road of recovery ahead of him. We will update as he progresses. Please consider making a donation towards the rehabilitation of Seth and the other 13 horses from Marlow, Oklahoma.
Update 12/22/2011 Seth is now seeking his forever, loving home. Seth has gained a lot of weight and looking great. Seth has been gelded. He still has a bit more to gain, but doing great and looking good. Seth is super sweet and loves attention. Seth has been started under saddle, just needs more time and rides. He will make someone an excellent horse. Seth has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, hoof maintenance, teeth floating, and gelding. If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy, please submit an adoption application or call/email to schedule an appointment to come visit Seth.
Update August 2016 Hell hath no fury like a rescuer scorned! We started freeze branding our horses in 2012. I so desperately wish we had started way before that. The reason for freeze branding our horses come in many forms. One of my biggest reasons was due to the large number of rescues we have taken in and adopted out, many colors, sizes and breeds and many look alike. But, let's be honest, after you have rescued hundreds of horses, it becomes hard to identify each of them. We do the best we can to keep an eye out for our rescued babies and make sure that they are continuously cared for in their adopted home. Sometimes, our best just isn't enough. With all this said, imagine my anger when I realized that one of our former rescued horses, saved, rehabilitated and adopted out, and once again had to be rescued. I can't even begin to tell you the anger and sadness I felt looking into the eyes of a horse that I already saved and already promised a better future for. But, what really angers me, is when an adopter signed a contract, agreeing to our terms of an adoption, takes it upon themselves to place that horse with another family, without notifying the rescue, without following the proper protocol to ensure the future and safety of that horse. A horse that we spent hours of our time saving, hundreds of dollars making sure that the horse was properly rehabilitated. That adopter put our rescued horse in danger, once again, without even giving a second thought of that contract or the organization that worked so hard to promise that horse a better future. It is bad enough that a horse has to suffer neglect and cruelty once in their life, but twice?! Yes, I am angry but I am also angry at myself. I am angry that I trusted this adopter, I am angry that I wasn't notified, and I am angry that this poor baby had to return here in the same condition he originally came to me. We have rescued 1352 horses over the last 16 years and we have only had a handful of our horses land in a bad situation, thankfully, we have always managed to get them back here where they belong, but those handful still break my heart. We are blessed with hundreds of wonderful adopters that make sure they do what is right for their adopted horse every day. To those of you that have adopted and continue to provide for your babies, thank you from the bottom of my heart. In the meantime, Seth is back here at the rescue and once again being rehabilitated due to the negligence of not only the original adopter but by the individual that neglected Seth and was seized by the Luther Police Department. A huge thank you goes out to Luther Police for investigating this case and doing right by these horses. He didn't deserve this!
Seth came from the Luther Police Department on August 13, 2016 along with 5 other horses. Seth is estimated to be 9 years of age, emaciated at a body score of a 1. Seth was infested with parasites, internally and externally, had rain rott and was covered in ticks. Seth had a low RBC, HGB, and HCT (anemia) can be secondary to infection, parasitism, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Seth had a large swelling located in the right upper lip. Aspirate of the swelling was performed and a viscous, clear, straw colored fluid was aspirated. No swelling remained and with antibiotics and banamine, it did not return. He is doing well but has a long road of recovery ahead of him. This sweet boy has suffered way to much in his short life. Please consider making a donation towards Seth's rehabilitation.
Update November 2016 Seth is doing well and gaining weight. He looks great and is seeking his forever, loving home. We want to make sure this time he goes to a forever, loving family. He has been through this twice now and certainly never needs to return to a life of neglect and starvation. Seth is such a super sweet horse with a laid back disposition. He truly wants to please and tries hard to do so. Seth is broke to ride but we do recommend some tune up time in a round pen as it appears it has been a while since he was ridden last. Seth stands for the farrier and loads in a trailer. Seth has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, dental, and hoof maintenance. If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy, please submit an adoption application or call/email to schedule an appointment to come visit Seth.
Seth has been adopted to a wonderful family in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Seth is going to be extremely well loved and spoiled rotten in his forever, loving home. We are thrilled this sweet boy found the forever, loving family he deserves where he will be showered with love and attention everyday.
