Champion Arabian Showhorse Slaughter-bound?

I'm posting this as this horse needs a chance to live and may end up where he shouldn't. He has given too much this is just another reason slaughter isn't the answer. A well trained champion and is at risk. Remember this horse is well trained and needs a well trained rider. He won't understand neck reining and such. He could also end up in the wrong hands with someone that doesn't know how to ride him correctly. When people don't understand how to ride a horse correctly they blame the horse he could end up abused in the wrong hands. Someone in that area please save this boy. I live to far away.

in/near Ohio wanting to help El Moraduke son?


Carol,

Thanks for posting this announcement.
It really hurts to see a great show campaigner like OA De Leon+ end up his life in an auction with the likelihood that he might go to the knackers.

I am afraid this is the plight of many of our horses in the spanish lines.



I just received this email and wanted to pass it along in case
someone was interested. This boy is out of Jairam, so he's double
Galero.

The information I received:

" OA DE LEON+ AHR*354165 Grey 1986 & another Arab gelding, going to
auction 2-14

[quote]....a public auction will be held February 14, 2009 at 10AM

Katherine Dunn & described as an Arab, 18yo, named Teddy; & a bay

[quote] This horse was bred by Owens Arabian Ranch in Az formerly of
california, long time breeders of Spanish Arabian horses. He is
very very big for an Arab., and impeccible Spanish cross breeding.
He is 23, and will probably go to the killers due to his size. Can
somebody rescue him?
The other horse is not listed in the registry as owner of any horses
other than the one above who goes by the name "Teddy"[/quote]

I thought I would pass this one to you just in case you know of
someone who is looking for a great horse for their kids. These
horses are located where I use to board LA. They use to be show
horses as well as used for lessons in the recent past. I believe
they may have good bloodlines if that would be an attraction for
someone."

His pedigree is up on allbreed:
http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/oa+de+leon
He had a very respectable show record according to DataSource.
