Monty whose racing name was “Honor Mountain” is a striking chestnut gelding born on May 18, 2002. After racing from 2005 – 2007, he was sent to be part of an equine studies program. However, in 2010 after he was no longer needed, Monty, along with two other Thoroughbreds also used in the same program were consigned to auction in December of that year where they could have been sold for slaughter. When we were alerted about this situation, we contacted the school and purchased the three geldings privately for $300 each on the very day they were to be auctioned off. Monty is a wonderful horse whose life is as rich and meaningful as ever, as are the other two Thoroughbreds rescued that day, Tim and Denny, who reside in another part of the sanctuary.
