We received a note from the granddaughter of a rancher in Alberta who has ended up in a difficult situation. This is her letter: (Please contact Jessica directly, thank you)
“My grandparents have been forced into bankruptcy, which is leading our horses to a Horse Auction in Innisfail , AB on Aug 30. There are over 30 horses going there from 3 month old colts, to older horses!
I am writing to you just in case there is anything you can do, or let fellow horse lovers know! From what we have heard the man sending them to the sale is planning on selling these young foals separate (despite only being 3 months) and then sending the mares to slaughter!
It breaks my heart. He is also selling semi broke horses as “well broke”, and the horses 1/2 years old are probably going to sell to meat guys too. Not much I can do to save any as I am a full time student! Thank you for your time.
I am more than willing to be a contact. Preferably just through email, I check it often! My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that Bear Valley Rescue will be attending this auction to rescue as many of these horses as donations will allow. Please consider donating to them:
These are photos of some of the horses in danger:
