Beautiful 6 year old bay gelding Wounded Knee is the latest horse to be adopted from Remember Me Rescue.
'Spots' as we like to call him here due to the white spots he has on his chest, neck and jaw, never found the winners circle in 11 tries at the track. His compassionate owner/breeders were committed to take care of the life they brought into the world by placing him with us in the middle of May to start retraining for his new life. They feel strongly about finding homes for all of their horses when their lives as racehorses are over just as many responsible horses owners do.
Spots was featured on the Remember Me Rescue website as 'Horse of the Month' for June. I immediately began receiving calls and receiving adoption applications from people who were interested in adopting him. After screening applicants and checking references I invited Misha to come meet Spots. When Misha came to visit Spots and it was love at first site. She didn't even want to see the other horses after their first encounter. Misha is a barrel racer and also shows western and english pleasure as well as has some experience training young horses. They are going to be a wonderful pair.
Wounded Knee is the 22nd horse we have placed in a new home this year through our rescue program. We are now over half way to our goal of placing 40 horses for 2009.
