NOTE: Beauty is half of a bonded pair with Belle. Belle has been adopted and lives at the Rescue. Beauty is available for an on-farm adoption, so she and Belle can stay together. Venezuelan Beauty (aka Beauty) was foaled in 2013. She ran her last race June 14, 2018, got injured, and was in the kill pen 30 days later. Given away on Craigslist to a supposed good home, a dealer in disguise took her straight to New Holland and sold her to kill buyer Brian Moore. She was bailed and taken in here at the Rescue. Beauty is strong with a kind and gentle soul even after all she has been through. Here at the Rescue, she is finally being treated like the princess she is. Thank you to those who have donated on her behalf. She could use a fairy godmother or two. She had a fractured sesamoid bone that fragmented into her suspensory. After a lot of rest and low-energy photon therapy she is now sound, and we have started working with her under saddle. She is ready to start her new life.
