Paints who need homes!

These horses, pregnant mares and foals, are in danger of being shipped off to slaughter. Their breeder is downsizing and wants to dump these horses. Shiloh cannot take in any of these horses, but many people in the Southern Nevada are stepping up to offer help to these horses. The horses are located in Moapa, NV, about an hour outside of Las Vegas.

There are some foster homes lined up for these horses, to help give people more time to make a decision. Horse Lovers have been volunteering their time, trailers, and help to help these horses.

For more information on how to help or how to purchase one of these beautiful Paint horses:

This type of situation goes to show just how irresponsible horse breeders can be. This guy bred all of these horses, but decided that now he doesn't want them, and so he decides to just sell them for slaughter. No doubt he will breed more next year. Another blaringly obvious example of an irresponsible person taking the easy way out and shipping horses off to a horrifying death. The vicious and ugly circle created by horse slaughter.

I was wondering what ever happened to these pregnant paint mares and their foals? I have it posted on my blog in hopes that someone can give them a good home. Please let me know if these horses found a good home yet. Thank you!
