Lance, our beautiful 17H cremello Missouri Foxtrotter was rescued from a slaughter holding pen in 2004. He was covered with bruises and bites and extremely depressed and anxious. It took him nearly six months to identify with and be comfortable around other horses. We promised him a lifetime home at Ruby Ranch.
Update: Lance suffered a severe colic episode and was euthanized on September 9, 2007. He is missed by his horse buddies and us humans as well.
