    Default TB mare w/decent pedigree up for adoption

    {Not sure where to post this... Mods, please move if needed.}

    I got a newsletter from the Louisiana Horse Rescue (the one that handled the Many, LA rescue last year and is currently handling the Ryder River rescue this year) and went through and looked at the ones currently up for adoption. Most of them are 3 yrs old and under and unknown parentage, but a couple are broodmares.

    I looked up the pedigrees, and this one caught my eye (she's tail female to Uvira in the 5th gen.): http://www.pedigreequery.com/hall+of+mirrors

    LHRA is currently waiving adoption fees for horses from the Ryder rescue to approved adoptors, and they do adopt out-of-state. In case anyone is interested in this mare or any others, here's the only link I have available: http://lahorserescue.com/ryderrescue...m_medium=email

    Interesting. I have a mare with that same damline, through a full sibling to Lusaka:

    Really don't think I've seen Zulu Dancer in any other pedigrees.

    I hope she finds a good home! I would consider it, were I in the market.

    Those poor horses! It is just heartbreaking. That yearling chestnut filly..
    I hope they all find good homes.

    Unfortunately, I think the chesnut filly pictured with her head laying on a saddle pad and an IV plugged in is one of the few who didn't make it...
    What pisses me off is the guy has lots more horses on his property that he has refused to release.

    The "owner" does as owner does - its that law enforcement has looked the other way and won't enforce any actions. Expecting owner to be better - way beyond that point given the evidence. The cruelty of the law enforcement means abuse and starvation of animals is CONDONED in LA. Worst of humanity.
