As part of our campaign to #passthesafeact to stop American horses shipping to slaughter across our borders we decided to rescue this mustang from a killpen in Louisiana. He had been languishing there for several weeks and was getting very close to shipping to slaughter. We launched a rescue for him and sent our trust hauler Carla down South to pick him up. He was in fairly good shape for a killpen horse although when he got to us we realized he was mentally traumatized and very unwilling to trust people for a while. We quarantined him and he started little by little to make a connection with us which was beautiful to watch as each day passed.
More than anything we would like Cisco's rescue to bring change to this cruel and inhumane trade in horse meat which results in over 150,000 horses shipping to slaughter ever year. Horse slaughter affects wild mustangs more than any other horses as they can be bought for so little they are a target for killbuyers to make money on their flesh and for them to end up on foreign dinner plates being eaten. The SAFE Act HR 113 needs more co-sponsors to get it to the floor for a vote so that no more beautiful horses like Cisco end up killed.
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......
