This is not a rescue horse from Forgotten Horses Horse Rescue. This is my mare, Bella who is a Tennessee Walking Horse. She had a rough life where I got her from and they did soring to her which is very painful so the Walkers will have high leg action. I bought her to get her out of the bad situation she was in, so I guess I did rescue her in a way from a life of pain. I cannot stand anyone who tortures or hurts an animal. This is probably why Forgotten Horses Rescue in Homeland, California has gotten my attention for what they do for horses that are forgotten.
There are so many forgotten horses around. These are horses who have done their jobs for their owners, but once they cannot perform or do what their owners want them to many horses are sent to auction. Many horses that go to auction should really be put down, but their owners cannot afford to do so. So, they make these poor horses go to the auction which can be a very scary place for horses. Many are confused and do not understand what is happening. They don’t deserve this treatment. Many will end up getting sold to the kill buyers. The kill buyers will take them to Mexico and Canada where they will be sold for meat. Yes, this is the true reality of sending your horse to auction. I cannot even fathom sending my horses there.
At Mike’s Auction in Mira Loma, the have an auction-typically the first Saturday of the month. Here, they sell horses that are scared to death to be in a strange place, not knowing what is happening. Here, they can be sold to kill buyers and end up on the WRONG truck. Or a few end up being rescued by many kind people who run rescues here in California. There is one in particular that I support, who does fantastic work and really does well by the horses. This is Forgotten Horses Rescue ran by Trish Geltner. I met Trish the other day and she really cares about these beautiful animals. She rescues, rehabs and rehomes as many forgotten horses as possible. She also works with other rescues and they help each other help the horses. Forgotten Horses Rescue, Inc invests 100% of all donations directly to help the horses.

I am a huge fan of this rescue, I hope you will be too. They also rescue doggies. Their mission is to rescue horses that have been thrown away and forgotten, and give them a second chance that they so desperately need and deserve. Please find it in your heart to help sponsor a horse monthly, or just give a one time gift. It all adds up even if you just have $1.00…if everyone gave $1.00 what a help that would be. Thank you so much and don’t forget about the Forgotten Horses Rescue. If we all could help one horse what a better world this would be.
