Bessie came into our rescue program on May 1st, 2009 from Beckham County. Bessie came into rescue along with 39 other horses, 12 Donkeys and a mule that were severely starved and neglected in Sayre, Oklahoma. Neighbors reported seeing several dead animals on the property to the Beckham County Sheriff's Office on April 28, 2009. Approximately 45 horse carcasses were located in different states of decomposition. The remaining 52 horses were found infested with internal and external parasites, injuries left untreated, hooves in extremely poor condition, some pregnant, one with a dislocated hip and another with a broken leg and body conditions ranging from a 1 to a 3. None of these horses were being properly cared for or had received proper Veterinary care in quite some time. Some of the horses hooves had growth over a year old. This is by far, one of the worst rescues we have seen. These horses have suffered a great deal. However, the ones that did not make it, suffered more than they should have been allowed. Horses were found dead, where they had dug themselves a hole and clearly suffered and died. It was devastating! We were able to save 52 horses, all of which are doing wonderful! These horses will never have to suffer the hands of such horrible neglect again. Please consider making a donation towards the rehabilitation of these wonderful horses.

Bessie is a Beautiful, Chocolate, Mini Donkey, Jenny. She is estimated to be 3 years of age! She was a body score of a 3 upon arrival, weighing in at 190 pounds, infested with ticks, lice and internal parasites. Bessie has been dewormed, treated for lice/ticks, had her feet trimmed, current negative coggins, vaccinated and is gaining weight wonderfully. Bessie is currently available for adoption. She is an awesome little girl, great disposition and very loving. If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl, please submit an application now.

Bessie has been adopted to a wonderful family in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Bessie is going to be spoiled rotten and extremely well loved with her new family. We are thrilled that Bessie has found such a great home.
