Romeo came from the Orlando area, his young 14 year old owner had to have brain surgery and the family decided they couldn’t keep him while concentrating on her recovery. He was being housed at a boarding facility and they were not taking care of him properly. He was underweight and his feet were a bit of a mess.
Chi-Chi is a 30 something year old Paso Fino. Her owner had to move out of state and has been trying since February to find a new home. It’s very difficult to rehome horses of her age so she was having no luck finding her a good home. When I called to say we could take her, she was so thankful because she had made an appointment to have her euthanized the very next day! It may sound harsh that she was going to have her put down, but it is so easy for a horse like that to end up at an auction and onto a slaughter truck. We are so thankful that we were able to help all of these horses.
