    Exclamation Horses Need homes ASAP- Wimberley, Tx.

    Urgent -- Horses Need Homes ASAP!
    Located in Wimberley, TX







    LOPE has just learned of 6 TB horses in Wimberley that must get homes asap due to a family emergency. Their owner is critically ill and his wife is inexperienced with horses. The horses are thin and in need of homes right away. We don't know many details about the horses -- this is the information we have:
    Native Red Fox:
    7 year old chestnut TB gelding. He is Texas bred and did race. Click here for photo.

    Gray Fox:
    6 year old gray TB gelding. Also Texas bred and did race. Click here for photo.

    "Findable":
    Chestnut TB gelding. Wife isn't sure of the registered name.

    Bay TB stallion with blaze, approximately 9 years old. He has a tattoo and did race at some point. Wife doesn't know his registered name. Click here for photo (blurry).

    Chestnut TB mare, approximately 5 years old. Wife thinks she is registered, but doesn't know name or racing history.

    Chestnut TB filly, approximately 4 years old. This filly was not registered, and she is very small and unstarted under saddle.


    The family is willing to give these horses away to good homes -- if you can give one or any of these horses a home, please contact Elizabeth (the owner's wife) by email at eraybra1@yahoo.com.

    The LOPE Ranch is full at the moment, and we appreciate all of your help in networking for these horses in need. Thank you!


    LoneStar Outreach to Place Ex-Racers (LOPE) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit devoted to providing new careers for retiring racehorses of all breeds in Texas. Through its online services and ranch adoption center, LOPE has transitioned over 475 Texas ex-racehorses into new homes since 2003.

    This is the email addy to contact them eraybra1@yahoo.com Her name is Elizabeth. I am in Vermont, and do not know of any horse rescues in Texas. A friend of mine from Texas emailed this post to me. I figured there may be some people on here in Texas who may be interested.

    Ya'll will have to email Elizabeth. I believe a few of them were only raced, I don't know any further info on it. One of those horses may be someone's dream horse.

    some one should do something with that grey horse, the color is a little unusual and I think could make a real eye catching mount
