Bobby II Freedom, a Draft Cross born around 1994, is a former New York City Carriage Horse rescued from slaughter on June 25, 2010. Equine Advocates made the arrangements to bring Bobby to an equine hospital for evaluation and then to the sanctuary. This wonderful horse, affectionately known by our staff as “Bobby Segundo,” will spend the rest of his life retired and turned out in the company of other horses—quite a departure from the unnatural conditions under which he was previously forced to live.
Bobby II Freedom has become the current-day ambassador for the tens of thousands of urban carriage horses in the U.S. and around the world who are used and scrapped for slaughter after they become old or injured. We hope to educate the public through Bobby about the plight of urban carriage horses and other equines who are used for work, abused and then discarded after they outlive their usefulness. Come visit Bobby up at the Main Barn or in the field called “The Heartbreakers” where you’ll find him alongside his best pal, Dallas! Photo credit: Nousha Salimi
