Testimonial: The Story of Buck, A Rescued Horse Sponsored by MDHPIC

“I would like to thank the Marie Dean Horse Protection Initiatives Canada and the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition for their very generous donation towards the care of “Buck.” Buck was a breeding stallion who ended up in the kill pen at the Kamloops auction. He was 20+ years old and very thin. He was saved from slaughter and came to BC Horse Angels in bad shape. After being wormed and having two rotten teeth pulled, Buck gained weight quickly and transformed into a stunning horse. He was gelded shortly after.

Buck’s kind nature touched everyone who met him. He became the herd babysitter and loved to spend time with the foals. (Many rescued horses come in pregnant.) Buck was rescued with Pearl, an older brood mare. The two are inseparable, and after being with BC Horse Angels for over a year, a wonderful permanent foster was offered for them. Buck & Pearl spent the summer with their caregiver, who provides horses with the best possible care. Buck & Pearl will return to BC Horse Angels for the winter and go back to their foster home in the spring. These two gentle, deserving horses will have permanent sanctuary for the rest of their lives.

Thank you MDHPIC! None of this would be possible without your generous gifts towards the horses.”
