 Animals’ Angels returned to the Shipshewana auction to attend the weekly horse sale.

Several of the horses arriving for the sale were in appalling condition; three were limping badly, one had a badly ripped cheek, two had fresh injuries around the eye and one appeared to be blind. The slaughter horse sale, as usual, took place in the pen area. 

The same workers from the Wednesday before were working and the handling was unnecessary rough again.  


All the limping and injured horses were bought by Muirhead Farms, a horse trader from Michigan, who has been linked to Roping J Ranch.

Animals’ Angels will continue to put pressure on this auction to improve the conditions and the treatment of the animals while present at their sale.
