In late March 2018, Redwings received a phone call from a trainer asking if we could rescue a beautiful young thoroughbred colt that was scheduled to be euthanized the following week. The colt had a bone chip in his hock and required surgery to remove the chip, or he would never be suitable for riding. The owner did not want to invest the money in the colt, so they planned to euthanize him.
Redwings quickly agreed to accept the colt and arranged for transportation. When we arrived to pick him up, we instantly fell in love with little Eugene’s sweet and kind disposition. Eugene loaded into the trailer with ease and traveled quietly back to the sanctuary. Redwings was able to raise the money to have Eugene’s bone chip removed, and he was happily adopted, thanks to the support of our donors and friends.
