Kennedy was rescued from a feedlot in Washington. They weren't sure he was a mustang so we had a vet visit there to check his brand. She confirmed that he was and told us he seemed around 18 years old and was guarded but friendly. We decided to rescue him and bailed him with the help of a private donor. Our ranch manager Jon drove the six hours up to the kill pen to haul him home and we all stayed up to welcome him here.
Kennedy was found to have strangles and influenza and was in quarantine for the longest time and longed to get out. He now runs with the boys herd on the North Forty and loves his freedom so much - he truly was born to be wild. He is a pretty high up member of the herd and is always the first to tell every new addition that he is king. We adore him and are so proud and glad to give him this gift of being able to retire and spend the rest of his days wild.
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......
