Ike came into our rescue program on May 1st, 2009 from Beckham County. Ike 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.

If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a forever, loving home to call his own, please submit an adoption application.
Update 08/10/2010 Ike has been with Trainer Robert Hayes for the last couple of months and doing great. This super cute pony is now broke to ride, but not quite ready for beginner riders. He has been ridden on many trail rides and a few moonlite trail rides. He would make someone an excellent little jumping pony. He would be best suited for an intermediate to experienced rider. He has a lot of personality and is going to make someone an excellent horse. If you are interested in giving this super cute pony a forever, loving home, please submit an adoption application. Ike has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, hoof maintenance and gelding.
Ike has been adopted to a wonderful family in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ike has finally found his forever, loving family. We are thrilled for this special boy. He is going to be extremely well loved and spoiled rotten in his forever, loving home.
