After returning from the border on the slaughter truck, Saber is SAFE! He is finally at QT with the other 2 we pulled last week. Steve and Toni Kroll are very well versed in doctoring and caring for kill lot pulls with some 500 head of experience. Saber is getting cleaned up, receiving a Tetanus shot...pain meds etc. They will update us as soon as they get him settled. There is a vet standing by if needed. He's a mess for sure....at least he won't die at slaughter thanks to all of you out there that helped save his life! You are all warriors and angels!
UPDATE: Saber is now on his way to an equine hospital. His cut extends from around his right front knee...around the back...up to his armpit and around to his breast. There is is possibly 3-4" deep and infected. He is no where near out of the woods......so we're keeping the #vigilforsabre.
Please donate if you can to help us save his life. https://www.paypal.me/rescuehorses
Hello to all you guardian angels tonite... as our prior”save” was too late to save the life of beautiful Saber, we are transferring this funds to “Blitz”. They have confirmed that he is still at the lot! If anyone wants their donation for Saber returned to them, please pm me and I will be happy to so! Bless you all! 🙏🙏
🙏AGES ANGELS this poor boy needs our prayers now more than ever!! Despite our having paid this sweet boys bail the folks at the kill lot put him on a truck headed south.
We are now working with contacts in Oklahoma to see if we can somehow get him back.
Please pray for his safe return, we are absolutely heartbroken and will do all we can to get him back 💔 We are beyond outraged that this has happened, despite networkers efforts and our promise they, loaded him up. Please help us and please #prayforsaber
