    Default 11/20 Camelot Rescue Horse -- pics, pedigree, and soap opera history!

    Here are a few pictures of the grey mare, #937, that I was able to bail out from Camelot on Friday....hours before she was to ship to slaughter.

    She is now living safely with a lovely woman named Tammy in PA. Hopefully Tammy will check in here and give us some updates!

    Thanks to Tammy, who can care for her and give her a home, and Michelle, who volunteered to trailer her, now she can have a second chance at life!

    You can also see to her left in the trailer the standardbred that was taken in by the standardbred rescue in Northern NJ. To the right is the leopard appy who was starting his journey up to safety at his new home in MA.

    Due to some detective work by some of the ladies involved in the rescue, we were able to find out that 937's name is "Beautiful Bride"! She was born Feb. 20, 1995 in NJ.

    It's also been discovered that she was bred by the same breeder who bred Smarty Jones! Tragically, the breeder and his wife were then murdered by the wife's son! How horrible! The horses were all sold off, except for Smarty Jones!

    What a horrible story for her breeders.

    With some good food and a nice, long bath, she is going to be a really good looking girl. I am a sucker for grays, and she has such a pretty, feminine head.

    Well, iloverocky, she is currently in quarantine, just being fostered and is available for adoption if you really like her!

    Wow- what an interesting background! Her pedigree shows she won at least one race- if you get a listing of her starts/wins you can call that track and see if the photographer has the win shot. Great thing to add to her "life book"! Can't wait to see her trimmed up and with some elbow grease! She has a beautiful look to her- very dignified. I can see why she caught your eye and couldn't be left to such a sad fate. Many thanks for working so hard for all those horses.

    Ha, I wish I needed another horse, but I am already supporting a gray thoroughbred (albeit an aged, retired one), two fat middle aged ladies, and the pudgy little paint gelding who has to "work" to support the lot of them.

    I do hope this girl finds a cushy 'forever' home soon. Thank you for saving her from a very bad fate, and thanks to her foster mom for giving her a temporary place to land.

    I had been trying to narrow down the search for the original Someday Farm which is just a couple miles from my farm. Does anyone know the name of it now? I think I do, I was told by someone in the racinig industry who lives near where it was.

    I think you meant Saddlebred? ('You can also see to her left in the trailer the standardbred that was taken in by the standardbred rescue in Northern NJ. To the right is the leopard appy who was starting his journey up to safety at his new home in MA.'). He and all of us Saddlebred fans are so glad he got a new lease on life!

    Oh wow I never knew that. This is the old TB mare I was worried about. The old TB mares are the smartest and best horses ever! Of course she's not as old as I thought she was, so if she is sound, she should be a good horse to hack around on.

    Her eyes look so soulful.... I just bet she is going to have some serious "WOW" power in a couple months.

    I am so glad I found this! I adopted this horse in March of 2010. I call her Sadie. She's such a sweetheart and I couldn't be more happy to have her as my first horse. She truly does everything you could ever ask a horse to do. I never had real riding experience before I got Sadie, and by the summer of 2010 we were in our 4-H Drillteam riding western pleasure! What a challenge it was to slow her down! But anyways, I as well as everyone else who knows Sadie is so happy she's with us. Talk about a girl's best friend. That's my Sadiebug. I have plenty of pictures of her too, both of when I first got her and ever since then. I'll try my best to figure out how to post pictures here so you all can see how wonderful she is now! Thank you so much for rescuing my girl. I'm so blessed to have her.

    This is so awesome!!! What great news!! I am so thrilled to hear that she found such a great home!

    I actually had one of her track racing pictures dug up, reprinted, and sent to me. I have to see if I can find it and send you a copy!!

    Please tell me more about her. I bought her knowing nothing about her. That was 4 months before my wedding, and then I found out her name was "Beautiful Bride"! What a coincidence!

    Wonderful ending to the story. Good to hear this mare got her very own happily ever after.

    I am so sorry this took me so long to get pictures of Sadie together!! Finally, here are some of the pictures I have of her from the time I rescued her in March of 2010 until now.

    I am sorry they are a little unorganized and not in chronological order. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do!!

    Sadie is such a wonderful girl! I just want to thank you again for rescuing her. Without your efforts, I would never have such a wonderful girl as I do now!

    @Kelly in NJ-- Were you able to find the racing photo of "Beautiful Bride"? I would absolutely love to have a copy of it!!
