...and this little pony went to market...



...and the EVIL WITCH went HA HA HA all the way home...


Pretty horse hu!? That is Comstock Glory another horse who was given a "forever home" with the EVIL WITCH (I'd like to use other words, but I try to keep my swearing at a minimum, key word: TRY.) I met her owner at the track last year, he is also a jockey. Comstock Glory bowed a tendon racing, and the EVIL WITCH said that she would rehab her so her daughter could use her because her daughter REALLY WANTED a gray mare. The owner (who I'm not going to name here, SUPER nice guy!) waited and waited for the EVIL WITCH to pick her up (she kept delaying it.) Finally she showed up, picked up Comstock Glory, and drove her straight to the Enumclaw auction. I know that he's been looking for her ever since, but is afraid of what happened to her. The same thing that happens to lots of TB's who wind up at the auction. They get sold for 75-200$ and are sent to kill. I thought I'd honor her today and put her picture up. I'm really hoping that she is off in some pasture somewhere being loved on by a little girl. I just can't understand how people can do that? She didn't even give her a chance to heal properly.

What a gorgeous mare! I have such a huge soft spot for grey TBs.
WHY do people keep giving horses to that lady?!?! There should be a giant poster at the race track with her picture and a caption saying, "Do NOT give your horse to this lady -- it will go to slaughter!"
Fingers crossed that she was one of the lucky ones and is being rehabbed and given the care and love she deserves. To think anything else is just too heartbreaking.

There are around 3,000 horses at the track and I guess she's a REALLY good sweet talker. People give their horse to her, then will tell someone else about the GREAT HOME they found for their horse, only to hear what kind of person the EVIL WITCH is. Sigh. I agree though! I'm thinking of making tee-shirts! :)
