Ahote (Ah-ho-teh) comes from the Hopi word for restless. Ahote is one of three young mustangs rounded up in 2021 and all ended up in the slaughter pipeline in July 2023. Front Range Equine Rescue is sponsoring the cost of initial rescue/rehab and other evaluation as the horses recover and receive all caretaking with the Wild Horse Rescue Center (WHRC) located in Webster, FL. WHRC has an excellent training and adoption program for formerly wild mustangs (and other equines) as well.

Ahote was very sick and emaciated upon arrival from TX to WHRC in Florida. Allegedly he and the others had been in a quarantine situation for several weeks prior. Ahote was put into quarantine at WHRC, given immediate veterinary care and has made slow/steady progress in his first few weeks of recovery.

Ahote and his 2 friends are mustangs who had received gentling and training before ending up in the slaughter pipeline. Further investigation will likely reveal that either owners or a “trainer” received funds to take the horses and planned to dispose of them via auction to kill buyer. Updates to come as information is hopefully obtained.
