Fourteen years ago, when Texans for Horses became the Fund for Horses I rescued four slaughter bound Quarter horses from a Texas feedlot. They had no papers. No one could or would tell us where they were from or how they had gotten in this hellish place.
Many of the horses in the feedlot had given up. They would not eat or drink, just crowded together for comfort staring vacantly ahead.
