Smokey's Story:

Smokey was pulled from the McLean, Texas kill pen by a group of mustang advocates as he had a home offer! Unfortunately, his home offer, and then TWO MORE home offers fell through for him, leaving him homeless.

His video in early May 2024 from the lot showed him skinny and scared, but willing to quickly listen to the human's commands. In the time that he was there, he lost so much weight he was emaciated when he left the lot and headed for the quarantine facility his original bailer sent him to.

We actually were planning to fundraise to pull Smokey from the lot back when he was first posted, but he was bailed off the lot so quickly we took it as a good sign that he had gotten a good home. Unfortunately, all three of his homes did not come through for him in the end!

These horses have been through enough between being rounded up, sorted by the BLM, set in holding, auctioned or adopted from the pens, trained (usually in in a forceful & rough manner), and now put through the auction circuit and ultimately left in a kill pen to be shipped to Mexico to be slaughtered. Enough is ENOUGH!

In late March we happened to see a post from the person who bailed him out of the kill pen explaining how people had offered him a home and then fell off the face of the earth, so we decided to step in and offer him a sanctuary home for good with the help of Fire Horse Brigade, and awesome foundation for the good of horses! Also with their help & through this fundraiser, we are going to bail another mustang mare who is in the McLean TX Kill pen who came from the same HMA as Smokey and transport the two to sanctuary together, for life!

Thanks to you all these two are SAFE and Smokey & Gypsy will arrive home sometime between June 13th-17th! 🙏🏻
