Blueberry Sapphire, A horse rescue story

Save Horses from Slaughter and Help Support their Care

Sometimes, you just have to follow your heart.   I recently visited a horse kill shelter in eastern Texas and found many horses in good condition that would be perfect to adopt. I couldn’t leave without saving one that I’ve named Blueberry Sapphire. This beautiful mare, a Blue Roan Quarter Horse, was in the pen for slaughter.

The moment I touched her I could tell she longed for attention and compassion, our hearts connected.  I justified I could save her and let her perform at the Beast Haunted House in Kansas City with the Headless Horseman. I gave her a trial run and she loved the attention, was so calm and sought love.   I grew up with horses, completed in AQHA reining in high school and have always incorporated them in the haunted attractions and festivals my family started.

Now, I’d like to rescue four more horses. They’d not only keep Blueberry company but they could also join her in the show. We have another haunted attractions, as well as, monthly festivals.  Perhaps the four could be the four horsemen of the apocalypse?  Or just be therapy for children in the urban core that never get a chance to meet these beautiful spirits.  I’m always looking for ways to save animals. We choose horses that love to hear the screams and laughter at the haunts that they’d visit for about 6 weeks a year. I am sure when they heard their horse neighbors at the kill shelters screaming at slaughter they were shook to their core. We have a chance to change their lives and educate other's about their amazing ability to love. 

Please donate to help us care for Blueberry and save more horses. The Headless Horseman will ride again but his horse needs some friends. The cost to acquire the horses is their “meat value,” and varies by rescue group, plus we have the cost of vet care, shelter, and food.  

Save the life of more horses and their care with Blueberry. Hopefully, the public may come and visit, enjoy and fall in love with these beautiful animals!
