Draft Gratitude Saves Lives.
Finding a horse with an injury tied at an auction barn is heart-wrenching.
Captain was tied, waiting for someone to save him. He had a badly irritated eye with tears draining down his face. An otherwise healthy and well trained horse was about to be sold for slaughter.
Draft Gratitude stepped up and rescued Captain!
Captain’s eye tested positive for Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Draft Gratitude had his eye removed to prevent the cancer from spreading to his skull and to provide him with comfort. He was an absolute trooper throughout the process. He has had his hooves trimmed, his teeth floated, his vaccines updated, and is microchipped. He is provided with quality feed, care, and love each and every day. He has since stolen many of our hearts! Captain is grateful, kind, and forgiving even after all that he has been though.
Captain is just one of many draft horses that has been saved by Draft Gratitude. There are tens of thousands more out there that need saving.
There is a steady supply of draft horses that end up being sold for slaughter every day. Many of these are experienced farm horses that still have a lot of life to live. They are often quiet, well trained, and able to perform light work. These horses have worked tirelessly their entire lives. They have earned the right to have a safe retirement.
These kind and forgiving souls deserve to be safe. This is why I support Draft Gratitude.
