Save Spiritual Magic

I know I have some readers in Southern California, so please pass this along, if you can.

From Facebook: "Spiritual Magic MUST find a home BEFORE the end of the month, or her owners may have to put her down. Extreme health/financial issues for the owner, does someone have the ability to take her in?. This lovely ex-race horse and broodmare needs are help! If you can assist, please contact thesecondrace@gmail.com THANKS!"

Here is more information from her adoption page (under April horses on Facebook for The Second Race rescue): "(Southern California)-- Mare Spiritual Magic is a retired ex-race horse and broodmare that is need of a new home. Spiritual Magic could continue to be a broodmare, or go on to do something else. Her recent progeny: She has a nice 3 year old in training with Kathy Walsh at SA (08 by Decarchy - "Magic Spirit") and also a nice two year old (09 by Good Journey - "Marmite").

Spiritual Magic (Hermitage--Storm Bird) is 16 years old, a sweet heart and is in good health. She went through the Barretts 2010 sale and was a no bid. We have her catalog page if interested. She is not pregnant at this time.

Spiritual Magic earned $ 65,000 during her racing career.

There is no adoption fee with Spiritual Magic."

I would love to have this mare, but couldn't afford the shipping to bring her here, and my pens aren't done enough to take in another one right now, so I really hope someone in that area can help. I have heard of even these older mares being able to start new careers as riding horses. Look at her face--you can tell she is such a sweetheart that deserves a second chance.

Blessed are the broodmares,

I would love to take that sweet faced girl in but I have no room and the cost to ship coast to coast wouldn't work for me. I hope she finds a loving home she is beautiful.

Do you have an email address, web page or phone number for the owners or whoever is in charge? I would like to post this information. With a name like that, I feel the need to help. I have an affiliation with "After the Finish Line", a rescue group in CA.

She's gorgeous, sadly I don't have a place to put her either :(

I'd take her in if I could afford to have her shipped out here... poor girl! I bet the cost would be close to $1000!

Jessie - I just heard from Dawn Mellen, President After the Finish Line - Thank you for contacting After the Finish Line. I was informed that this mare had several inquiries with the likelyhood of a new home. We should be hearing confirmation of this when it happens.
