Marvel was saved along with 64 other mini horses from being sent to slaughter in Oklahoma. Thanks to Little Hooves Rescue, all the horses have found new homes. Marvel was one of the last ones left and The Gentle Barn was so grateful to bring him home and give him the life he deserves. The other horses and donkeys at the sanctuary were so excited when he arrived and rushed over to greet their new friend.

Marvel, also known as the unicorn, is having the time of his life at Sanctuary The Gentle Barn! He had never had such a soft and comfortable bed before and was looking forward to all its delicious carrot treats and loving back rubs. Since arriving at the Sanctuary in California, he’s also made a new best friend! He and Addison the Donkey have been practically inseparable since they met. They are roommates, like to eat together and play together in their garden every day.

More than 100,000 horses — pets, show and race horses, carriage horses, and wild horses — end up in slaughterhouses each year, says the Humane Society. Horse rescue groups literally go to auctions to bid for the lives of horses against “murder buyers.” Kill buyers look at horses and don’t see pets or people; You see meat. After a horse is purchased from a kill buyer, it’s shipped to a slaughterhouse in Mexico or Canada, the Humane Society adds.
Marvel and the other 64 Oklahoma mini-horses are all successful examples in the fight against the cruel slaughter industry. They are the lucky ones who have been given a new start thanks to kind people. You can make a difference and support your local horse rescue and sanctuary. Be a voice for the voiceless.
