Be Bop Baby was born April 8th, 1997 and raced in Maryland. She started 19 times but only won one race and earned less than $10,000. She was retired to be a broodmare. Unfortunately she ended up in a really bad place and suffered years of starvation and abuse at Charles Fords farm in Many, Louisiana.
In 2012 Be Bop Baby was rescued through a seizure along with nearly 60 other starving thoroughbred mares, yearlings, and stallions. She was one of the lucky ones. There were dozens of other horses found dead on the property.
The photos below were from the actually rescue site and were taken by Donna Keen. They may be disturbing to some but take comfort in knowing she is safe now and will live out her days at Remember Me.
These photos were taken at the farm where she was rescued when we were there to assist in the seizure. Other photos were taken shortly afterward. It is so hard to believe someone could do this to one horse, but Charles Ford starved over 120 horses, about 60 of them were dead when we arrived. He is currently serving a long jail sentence for this horrific act.
Here is Be Bob Baby just a few months after arriving at Remember Me....
Be Bop Baby
Please give a gift to help us continue to care for this sweet mare and support our efforts to help others like her.
Bo Bop Baby is not available for adoption due to health issues resulting from starvation and injuries she recieved from the farm she was siezed. When she arrived at RMR she was near death, even smelling like dead flesh. But within a few months she was a glistening, beautiful mare with a personality as beautiful as she is. I have never met a more grateful, kind horse. She knows she is special and shows appreciation to everyone she meets. She is amazing.
Please consider giving a gift to help us with her care. She is on a special diet and requires senior feed and alfalfa hay. That along with her veterinary and farrier care is very expensive and we need your help.
A one time gift is very appreciated but if you are able please consider joining
