Raven and Racer
Panhandle Equine rescued two horses April 11, 2008 after working with the owner for four months. Conditions never improved, so investigators were forced to take action. The horses were reported on two occasions roaming at large on Hwy. 168 in Century. They were also not being fed properly. The owner voluntarily surrendered the horses. No charges have been filed. The horses are Arabians: a mare called Raven and her colt called Racer.
07/18/08 UPDATE: Raven has been diagnosed with "Grade 2 Ulcers" and experiences pain on a daily basis. She has been started on an oral paste that must be given daily. One tube costs $33.00. She must receive this medicine for 28 days. Raven's expenses have added up to almost $1,200.
01/12/09 UPDATE: Raven is doing much better. She has some mild pain sometimes, but it doesn't last long and she works through it on her own
without any medications.
Raven and Racer are currently up for adoption; see them on the adoption page
