This is Dorothy. Dorothy, because when we first saw her she was in a kill pen in Kansas - and we needed her to tap her hooves together and wake up at Skydog. Way over the rainbow.
She is a 24 year old tiny little mare originally rounded up from Pine Nut Mountain range in Nevada. This poor old girl was actually part of a number of horses from a starvation case and a lot of them already shipped. But this girl was still there and we wanted to get her out of there. Our wonderful hauler Carla was able to drive there, collect her and they made the 400 mile journey to Carla's place in Colorado. Dorothy rested there and her re-feeding began until she was strong enough to make the rest of the trip to Oregon.
She has become such a popular horse at Skydog Oregon due to her sweet gentle nature and love of scratches. She is currently in the barn but will be added to a herd as soon as she is stronger and has gained some more weight. xxx
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......
