In Loving Memory of Banner

Banner, one of the loveliest horses ever at the sanctuary, sadly passed away on August 9,  2014 at the age of 29.

Banner, formerly Bloodstock, had been foaled on May 9, 1985 in Kentucky and raced 71  times. Although he was not a major stakes winner, his bloodlines were impressive as he was from Graustark’s last crop. After his racing career was over, he was used as a cheap stallion until the the age of seventeen. He was in Ohio and was two days away from going to the slaughterhouse when we heard his story and rescued him by purchasing him before he was sold to a killer buyer which had already been arranged. That was in 2002. We immediately sent him to Ohio State University Hospital to be gelded.

Banner was one of the most elegant and kindest equines we have ever known. We immortalized him in bronze for our Safe Home Equine Protection Award that is given out at our annual Gala. The old expression about class – “you know it when you see it” – that was Banner through and through. He personified class. He lived a very happy life with his two buddies, Harry, 22 and Freddie, 23, in the section of the sanctuary we call “The Grumpy Old Men.”

We will sorely miss you, Banner. RIP sweet boy!

In Loving Memory of Max Weintraub

Max was a great friend to Equine Advocates and we are so saddened by his passing. He loved horses and cared deeply about their well being. He was a sponsor of our beautiful, Dolly, a rescued Percheron mare. One was very fortunate to have the opportunity to spend time with Max. He was an incredibly kind and compassionate person. Max, you will be sorely missed. RIP

We are reprinting his obituary from the New York Times -
Loving and beloved father of Aviva Weintraub, and father-in-law of Gordon Tapper, Max Weintraub has died at the age of 92. Max was a WWII veteran (CBI Air Transport), retired adman, avid participant on horseback trail rides in Arizona, longtime public school volunteer, off-off-Broadway music impresario, and so much more. A lifelong New Yorker who loved spending summers in Vermont, he never forgot his roots on the Lower East Side. Sweet, generous and kind, friend to many, and devoted to his extended family, he was a gentleman and a gentle man.

In Loving Memory of Jilly

Jilly, a Mule, passed away on April 6, 2014. She was one of the sweetest, gentlest equines we ever rescued.

In 1999, Susan Wagner went to a special Mule Sale at New Holland slaughter auction in Pennsylvania. That day, there were 500 mules for sale. We could only afford to buy seven of them that included Jilly, along with her brother, Jack. The auctioneer announced that they were a team that used to pull a plow at an Amish farm where Jilly had sustained an injury. Susan had to bid against the killer buyers to save them and luckily she was the highest bidder. She bought them both so not to separate them.

Jilly has been happy and healthy for the 15 years she was with us, but on the morning of her passing, she was clearly in a lot of discomfort. Our veterinarian determined that she had an impaction in her small intestines and at age 30 (+) she was not a candidate for surgery. She was humanely euthanized in the field with her brother, Jack, at her side, along with us and the other six equines that lived with her in the area we call “Mule Town.” She went very peacefully. Jilly was a delight to be around and will be sorely missed. We are so pleased to have given her a second chance at life when the alternative would have, otherwise, been devastating.
