Breeders’ Cup or Bust: ‘It’s Amazing’ What We’ve Done

by | 10.30.2012 | 11:51am

The Breeders' Cup or Bust team continues its search for stories from across the Southwest as the Paulick Report makes its way toward the Breeders' Cup World Championships in Southern California, raising funds for Breeders' Cup Charities along the way.

Our next stop isn't exactly on the beaten path.  But if you drive far enough into the Eastern Mountains of New Mexico, you'll discover a peaceful sanctuary where former Thoroughbred racehorses that have been abused or neglected can recover and start a new life.

Ray Paulick and producer Scott Jagow introduce us to the dedicated people of Walk N Circles Ranch, a rescue operation that thrives while always struggling with the difficulties of an unwanted horse population and the constant search for funding.

    Well done.

    I am not jumping to conclusions but why did I not see a bit of hay in front of any of these ‘starving rescued’ horses during the whole video?

    My thoughts exactly Jennifer, and not many shelters either … and frankly, my next thought was, they all may as well be dead.  Horses need to be nibbling on a little timothy at the very least almost constantly, and not the dirt like one of them was.  Sand colic must be a daily occurrence there.  Sorry, but I question their motives… BUT, would love to be wrong !

    According to video , some of those horses had no teeth, but were nibbling on alfalfa and hay cubes.  Just make sure to donate to a charity you trust!
