The gray fillyThe deep gash oozing so darkly across the angelic pale face of the nameless filly riveted Mindy Lovell’s attention the way a red flight might a bull.

In the five years she’d spent rescuing Thoroughbreds from slaughter, Lovell had seen things, unimaginable things:  She’d witnessed horses arriving dead in shipping trucks, trampled by other terrified horses; Pregnant mares labouring through spontaneous abortions in transport and injuries so horrible that once regal Thoroughbreds hobbled like cripples.

  1. Oh God, the horse slaughter DISGUST in Canada never ends. Regarding a readers’ comment-recently ” I hate it when my steak has whip marks on it from the jockey” ……. Geez, I know for sure there are some great people in Horseracing that always try to do the right things for their horses but still too many don’t. Was Glenye injured at racetrack before tattooed? Maybe cheaply bred? Probably tested out on somebody’s training track at a farm first, timed, failed, then disposed of! Just business,right ? Doesn’t matter in the killpen, thank goodness she is, where she is now. I’d like to see another pic of her posted again soon Mindy,

  2. Bless you for saving her. I wish all the horses were so lucky

  3. Thanks for all you do Mindy – we love ya!
