Birth Year: 2009
Color: Sorrel with a Star
Horse Info: Peanut is one of our
newest rescues taken in 12-31-11.
He is currently staying in one of the
Sanctuary's foster homes. OSU's
Equine team has determined he is a
crypt orchid, meaning one or both
testes have not descended into the
scrotum, making the gelding process
slightly more difficult. However, OSU
is confident they will be able to
successfully geld Peanut and we
hope to schedule this procedure in
February of 2012. His foster parents
say he is well mannered and have
already begun doing some ground
work. Once his quarantine period is
complete, we will begin the
evaluation process and get him
ready for a new forever home!
The Unwanted Horse Issue
Every year, thousands of horses are considered to be unwanted. These horses may find
themselves neglected and suffering for various reasons, such as the horse is old, sick,
injured, dangerous, owner has no use for the horse, or owner is experiencing financial
hardship. No matter what the reason, the truth is that every day there is a horse in need of
help. Currently, the problem of the unwanted horse is still a big issue, even though many
organizations are trying to make a change. A few lucky horses are rescued by humane
societies or animal rescues and given a second chance at life. Unfortunately, the amount of
unwanted horses is too great of a number for organizations to support each year, with
many of these horses ending up in slaughterhouses in Mexico and Canada.
