Liberty came to Blaze's Tribute August 9, 2003, along with Twister.
They had been extremely starved and neglected in Spencer, Oklahoma.
The Spencer police seized the horses from the previous owners, in lue of
charges of animal cruelty, the owners released the horses to the police.
The Spencer police then requested that the OKC Animal Shelter take them.
Catherine English from the shelter called us to take the horses.
Liberty and Twister spent one week at the OKC Animal Shelter awaiting
their arrival here at Blaze's Tribute Equine Rescue. Liberty is
estimated to be 4 years of age. She is in extremely poor condition
and before being removed from her previous owners she delivered a foal
but it did not survive. Liberty is currently undergoing
Rehabilitation and it will take at least 6 months for her to gain a
reasonable amount of weight.
Twister is estimated to be 5 years of age. He is also in extremely
poor condition. He came to Blaze's Tribute as a Stud, and he will
have to be gelded after he puts a reasonable amount of weight on in
order to handle the surgery. Twister also suffers from an injury
to his left hind leg. It appears that it healed incorrectly and
left his ankle twisted. Twister and Liberty have a long road of
recovery. Stay tuned for updates.
