Earlier this year, a trailer loaded with 30 horses overturned when the driver fell asleep en route to a Texas feedlot, a waypoint to what would have been their final destination at a slaughterhouse south of the border.
The cost of transporting the horses to the rescue and preliminary veterinary care for these horses was funded by two anonymous donors. According to NewsOK.com, the horses are currently staying in a pasture owned by a Blaze’s Tribute volunteer.
Some of the survivors sustained injuries in the crash and are still recovering, while others are already available for adoption. All of the horses are expected to recover and eventually find adoptive homes, though some may require maintenance care for their injuries.
“I am so glad that these horses now have a second chance at life. They were doomed for slaughter for human consumption, suffered a trailer wreck and now have a chance to be part of someone’s family,” said Cross. “They will know what love is and no longer fear what is around the corner. They have a new beginning.”

normally a trailer accident is a bad thing, but these horses are lucky!
Thank you to the anonymous donor who helped make this possible.
I’m so glad to hear these horses have a chance to a happy ending.
Glad the horses got some help. I hope all the wrong-doers get what they deserve.

A happy ending, that’s what it’s all about. To the donors, Hurrah for You! Thank you
Sounds like a fairytale ending.
That is sooo great! I’m so happy for those survivors. They deserve the best. Wish i could adopt them all!!!
See if only everybody in this world would be smart enough to see that these beautiful creatures deserve the best and a second chance!
I applaud Blaze’s Equine Rescue! I rescued my very first horse less than a year ago, and have many rescued dogs and cats. I wish those that have the time and money would put it to good use helping rescues that try to save all these wonderful animals!
I would love to adopt those luckless horses! Too bad I live four hours away by plane, probably several hours by trailer. Anyways, not allowed to have a horse! : (
