Fred was purchased from a kill auction in PA during October 2014. Not only was he too thin, but his left hind leg had massive swelling (suspected chronic lymphangitis). At times he was non-weight bearing, but as most drafts are, very stoic hiding his pain. This gentle and sweet Belgian gelding was approximately 10-11 years old.

Due to other issues, Fred was humanely euthanized and a necropsy report showed tumors in his hindleg and lungs. It is hard to imagine the suffering this horse endured prior to rescue.

This horse is not available for adoption
