Old horse joins pack of mini donkeys to escape slaughter, president of Frisco nonprofit says
by Liz Farmer
An old gray horse headed for slaughter in Mexico recently orchestrated his escape by slipping into a pack of mini donkeys being rescued by a Frisco-based nonprofit, the group’s president said.
Staff members of Becky’s Hope Horse Rescue were down at a “kill lot” to rescue several donkeys, which is part of their mission to save abused, neglected or abandoned livestock. Bubbles, the horse, walked right up to their trailer as they tried to load the donkeys, according to a Facebook post from the nonprofit published Dec. 16.
“He was intent that this was his ride out of there,” the post said. “We stood there staring as this old guy with crumbled ears from frostbite waited patiently for the group of mini donkeys to catch up so he could jump on the “freedom trailer” out of there.”
