SOOTY AND SHELDON
Sooty and Sheldon were rescued from ISPMB - which is a horribly failed mustang sanctuary in South Dakota. The horses there were found starved and freezing to death when people reported the owner for hoarding and mistreating the horses in her care. The sanctuary was seized by the county and they allowed some wonderful organizations to help find adopters for these horses.
Sooty and Sheldon were not in good health when they arrived with another mare and foal. Both the babies were wormy and all four horses were mangy, had lice and mites and a bad case of shipping fever. But these horses are fighters to have survived that place and a tough haul in difficult conditions in the middle of winter. They have thrived and transform every day before our eyes. These are some amazing horses and from the Sheldon herd so it is an honor to have them with us at Skydog.
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......
