Today, we have a mare in extremely urgent need and we need help in finding her a new home.
This special girl is an “Honorary Appaloosa,” a breed designation that we award to a horse who merits attention on this site because he or she is (a) in dire straits, and (b) a nice horse deserving of the kindness of strangers. This girl is in deep trouble if help can’t be found for her. We are posting this on behalf of our good friends at Western Montana Equine Rescue, who are racing against the clock to get this mare to safety. We are hoping that our western followers will help out by either stepping up for her, or will share this information with someone who can.
Cameo Paints in Billings, Montana is having a dispersal sale and they don’t think anyone will want this girl. She is an 18yo registered paint who is blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other. The rescue reports that she seems very sweet and is possibly four months pregnant. A young girl haltered her and picked up her feet, so she is a nice mare who is easy to handle. She was in with a bunch of other horses. The owners are trying to find her a home so they don’t have to take her to the auction. We do not think she will fare well there. If you know of anyone interested please have them call Tracy at 406-697- 3520.
