In this video, Vet Ranch travels to a horse auction to pick up a pregnant mare named Nova that was destined for slaughter. The neglected horse was going to be sent to Mexico for processing, but thanks to Vet Ranch and their supporters, she was saved.
The auction was hard situation for Dr. Kari to witness, as she wanted to save all the poor horses being corralled for slaughter. But she took comfort in the fact that they had saved two, Nova and her unborn foal.
Once they had Nova, Dr. Kari begins treating Nova. She needed treatment for parasites, a respiratory infection and to be properly fed. Just a short time later, Nova gave birth to a beautiful black foal named Orion.
The two horses now have a second chance at life thanks to their rescuers!
