Ellen Vandover just alerted me to some Icelandic horses that are currently in the Zillah feed pens and are in need of rescue. The ages range from 2 – 14 and are based off size, body size and tail length. They are halter broken and normally friendly but in the feedlot they seem pretty timid. Most have had their feet trimmed.
The lastest word is there are still 32 on the lot that have until Friday when they go to slaughter. They are priced by the pound–$375, $475 and $575.
If you know of anyone who would like to save one or more of these Icelandics, they can call Pam at 509-952-3866.
EDITED TO ADD: I’ve been alerted that there may be a scam in play to take rescue money and slaughter the horses any way. Proceed with caution.
