Whoo hoo! SCTR got her, via Megan Gaynes' (of AHR) on-site bid, for $100. Now they just have to get her from Turlock to Norco!

They could still use your dollars. Cymple Rhythm will obviously be a long-term, expensive rehab project -- and they now have 2 hospice cases as well. And while SCTR was among the first 3 groups to receive TAA certification, and at some point they will receive money from TAA -- at the moment they have no clue as to when or how much that will be.

That's fabulous! Sounds like they got lots of donors very quickly too :-) She had me at that big brown eye, lol. What a great network they have...if anyone can restore her to health, I'm sure SCTR can! Looking forward to positive updates on this one...I hope, I hope...

From Auction Horse Rescue's FB page. This pertains to Cymple Rhythm, but mostly I'm posting it as an example of the effort sometimes required to pull off a "simple" auction rescue -- and of the incredible generosity of many involved.

"It's 4am and we're loaded up, with an emaciated Thoroughbred mare set up in a pampered show horse box stall (on the trailer), just in case she's too weak to stay upright for her 5-hour journey. To be safe, she'll be laid over for a few days in Canyon Country, before finishing her journey to Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue's foster in Apple Valley.

I'm always a big proponent of rescuing broodmares together -- even the act of separating the older Quarter Horse mares to load them, resulted in a great deal of middle-of-the-night calling for each other. They're now side-by-side, contentedly munching on their hay. They will also layover til Saturday, when Summer's "rescue train" can pick the two girls up.

Huge thank you to Derek Hunt and Stephanie Sherman for hooking up one of their amazing rigs at a moments notice, making the middle of the night 10-hour drive, to transport an emergency load of rescues! Safe driving...for me, too!"

Glad to hear they were able to pull her and that she is now on her way to SCTR.

I look at people like this: SCTR frantically fundraising on just one of many Saturday nights; Megan and her crew spending at least 10 hours on an auction lot; 2 people who, at the drop of a hat, haul out their best rig and do a 10-hr round trip to pick up 3 rescues; those who find space, at a moment's notice, to foster/quarantine, a needy horse or three; etc., etc., . . . . And then I look at those breeders/sellers who won't kick in, what is it, $100?, to the JC fund when they register their horses or won't kick in a fraction of a percent of the price of the horse they just sold.

And it just doesn't compute.

A big thank you from SCTR:

Dear Friends,

yesterday, we received a text with a partial tattoo and a description of color and markings of a horse at auction. For once, it was easy to discern which horse it was - Cymple Rhythm, a former race mare and a foal of 2003. Then, the photos started arriving... [photos omitted]

We had a space for her, but no funds to support the rescue and lengthy rehabilitation of another horse in desperate need of help.


We asked you if you would help and so many of you responded and so quickly - thank you all so much! Cymple Rhythm is the type of horse our rescue was established specifically to help: a thoroughbred ex-racehorse at highest risk, and without intervention - a doomed life. Under the saddle she was ridden through the auction in, lay this... [photo omitted]


Thanks to you and your generous donations, we were able to say yes - please rescue her for us! A huge thanks also to Megan Gaynes of Auction Horses Rescue for alerting us to Cymble Rhythm, bidding on our behalf, and arranging transport back to southern California.

Cymple Rhythm has arrived safely this morning in southern California and very shortly she will be with us. Thank you all SO much for your support of this mare! We hope she can recover and will be fat and sassy and healed in a few months. (Photos courtesy of Auction Horses Rescue.)



You saved a life.

Thank you!

Caroline
President/SCTR

It would be interesting to see the photos that were omitted in that post but, if I had to guess...what lay under the saddle were horrible sores and/or a skinny backbone with its hair worn off. :(
