Sylvia, we believe, is an Arabian/Quarter Horse Cross mare born around 2010. She was standing in the Kaufman Kill Pens in Kaufman, Texas and less than 24 hours from being shipped to Mexico for slaughter. That was in September of 2018 when a friend of Equine Advocates found her photo online among equines bound for slaughter. Because no one stepped up to bail her out, we did, and with the help of a good friend with great connections, located a farm in Louisiana where she could be quarantined.

Sylvia remained at that facility for 40 days during which time she was examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, wormed, had her feet trimmed and teeth floated. In early November, she travelled to New York and was sent to a foster home where she stayed until we had the room to accommodate her at the sanctuary. We named her Sylvia because she looked like a silver horse in the first photo we saw of her. Sylvia is a gem!
