Pearl & Onyx came into our rescue program on May 1st, 2009 from Beckham County. Pearl & Onyx 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.

Pearl is Beautiful, Gray, QH, Mare and her son Onyx is a beautiful, Black, QH, Stud Colt. Pearl is estimated to be 8 years of age! She was a body score of a 1 upon arrival, weighing in at 704 pounds, infested with ticks, lice and internal parasites. Onyx is estimated to be 4 months old. He was a body score of a 1 upon arrival, weighing in at 208 pounds, infested with ticks, lice and internal parasites. Both have been dewormed, treated for lice/ticks, had her feet trimmed, current negative coggins, and is gaining weight wonderfully. Pearl & Onyx should be available for adoption in 30 days. Both are super sweet, love attention and would make someone excellent horses.

Pearl & Onyx Update 6-26-09 -- Pearl and Onyx are seeking that loving, forever home that they deserve. Both are still gaining weight and looking so much better. Pearl is broke to ride and will make someone an excellent horse. She is extremely smart, rides great, side passes, and would make an excellent horse whether for trail, pleasure or performance. Once she finishes gaining weight, she will be a big, stout girl. Both are super sweet and will make excellent horses. Pearl has a current negative coggins, both up to date on vaccinations, deworming and hoof

Pearl & Onyx have been adopted to a wonderful family in Red Rock, Oklahoma. Pearl & Onyx are going to receive lots of love and attention by a wonderful family with children. They are enjoying 160 acres of beautiful Bermuda grass with some of their pasture buddies. We are thrilled that all of these beautiful horses found such a wonderful family.
