Hi all,

some beautiful horses were pulled from the kill pen on Monday with the help of FOB's and the AC4H YHOO group.

Here they are, starting with Esperanza, a 10 yr paint gelding, 15.1 HH

A darling little 11hh hackney pony, blind in one eye with a big right knee. 17yrs, quiet and gentle.
If you remember, she was the one standing in the kill pen with ears back trying to defend herself.

Then we have these two Perch geldings, 16hh. They have gone to foster.

Please contact christy@ac4h.com if you are interested in adopting or helping to angel some of these horses as they wait for their forever homes.

Lisa - that sweet little hackney.  I am so glad that Christy was able to pull her to safety.

Nice saves guys!!!!

Christy just my opinion, but that Paint mare looks as though you may want to have her checked for Cushings or Insulin Resistance.

Good luck with the recent additions!!

They are beautiful!  And that Hackney pony is really special.  So happy that they were saved.

They are sooo beautiful. Its hard to believe that horses like these end up at auction-so sad! Thank you Christy and to all the FOB's who made this possible. Amanda

Christy know some good shippers! HA! I agree, he is something to look at.

(They are all gorgeous. If they're not stunningly beautiful, they're like the little blind pony and break your heart another way.)

Thank you so much for the pics!!  Seeing these horses safe gives me some comfort after the horrible news about Cavel today. 

God bless you for everything you and everyone at AC4H does for the horses!

Chrissy, it's a team effort. Christy had purchased three at auction on Saturday and without FOB donations, she wouldn't have had the funds to pull these from the kill pen on Monday. We all did good!
