NEWS from Gerda:
As a result of our great adoptions last week, we are in a position to save 2-3 more horses from slaughter! The March 29th horse auction at Unadilla will be attended on our behalf by our good friend Kay, who has helped us in the past. She is also responsible for saving Contender, Santo, Annie, Coco and Glory!
She has an experienced eye and a kind heart, we are grateful to have her.
She picked this auction because there have been just about no private buyers and slim pickings at these auctions (she said maybe 20 horses have run through over the winter months) Most of the buyers there are Renders, who bring the horses to the rendering plant and shoot them once they are in there, these horses are then rendered for fertilizer and various other things. As Kay said there might just be a couple whose lives will be able to be continued that night.
