Read was spotted in a kill pen in Oklahoma and his photographs were horrifying. We bailed him and he was in quarantine for five weeks before heading up to Black Hills Wild Horse sanctuary in South Dakota for a little acclimation before heading here.
Read is 22 years old and his injury was from where somebody put a halter on him and never took it off, causing it to grow into his face - his nasal cavities are open to the air as a result but he does so well and runs around and seems in no pain or discomfort. He is one of our favorite saves.
These are just a few of the Mustangs we have brought to the ranch, there are so many more that need a safe environment to live in.
Check back soon and meet other rescued horses and please donate to help us save more mustangs. Over 150,000 American horses are shipped to Mexico and Canada every year and killed in the most inhumane and brutal painful way imaginable - stop the slaughter by lobbying your congressmen to Pass The SAFE ACT......
