Beloved Horse Shot, Need to Move
Mikey came to us from Auction Horse Rescue. He was a special needs horse who suffered severe abuse. He was emaciated, was missing his bottom jaw and lower teeth, had severe arthritis in his back legs, all due from a sport called tripping, Mikey was just seven years old. Trinity has provided a safe loving home for Mikey for over two years. His special diet of soaked cubes, grain and beet pulp worked wonders for him. He was beautiful, funny, loving and loved food! He never had to worry about his next meal or live in fear of being mistreated. It was an everyday occurrence seeing him running toward you with his tongue hanging out, ready to see what goodies you were bringing him.
As our property is a corner property, we do not have a large area to keep the horses that is not accessible from the road. We urgently need to move. This is the latest in a string of livestock and pet shootings in the Oroville area. We are 20 miles from the town and did not have any reason to believe that we would be targeted. We feel violated in every sense of the word.
We have been actively looking for property for the last six months and have been unable to find anything that will house the horses and ourselves. This horrific murder makes this need to move extremely urgent. We need a safe place for the rescued horses, donkeys and goats that we take care of that we can all feel safe in. Trinity Horse Refuge is a 501c3 organization. EIN 46-2930095.
Thank you to all who have donated so far. Your donations not only help us reach our goal but they keep us encouraged by your generosity.
I know there is property down our road in oroville I'm scared for our horses too ! There's around 10-30 acres I believe and it's a private road not sure on the price but there's no fences or buildings either.. Would be a project but there is a pasture that is closed off that could be used to house horses or cows if needed urgently
I am so sorry for your loss of Mikey, he looked like a beautiful horse! One of God's lovely creatures that didn't deserve to die like this. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. I will talk to my husband and try to help in some way. I pray the police find who is doing this and throw the book, as they say, at them. I work for a vet and love all of God's creatures, and non of them ever deserve this!!! I will share this post, and hope that some of my friends can help too.
An alleged human beings that commit this type of Criminality are Subhuman trash and POS! Anyone that can randomly go up to any Innocent animal in this Community is a Danger to the entire populace. And we are NOT just speaking of the poor animals, but also individuals/people that could be Killed or Murdered by this cold blooded manic ! The sheriffs department is a mockery, as well as animal control for not criminally Investigating this malicious criminal act===Lazy,Pathetic,and Grossly Incompetent. Typical misnomer and overpaid public servants doing what they do BEST===Nothing with our Tax dollars and their exorbitant salaries,benefits,holidays,vacations,retirements,health and dental free plans,disability time off, leave time, and suspension pay!
