This site is dedicated to the direct sale
The horses listed as 'Feedlot Horses' on the Rebel's website have been purchased by the feedlot owner for the purpose of re-sale to the Slaughterhouse in Mexico. The Rebels group has been given permission by the feedlot owner to assess and advertise the horses in the hope of seeing them safe in the hands of new owners.
We volunteer our services for the love of the horses and all listings are free. We are not a charity, nor do we hold a 501 status. We do not solicit donations and we do not deal with the funds on any level. All purchases are conducted between the buyer and Samantha Milbredt acting as the go between for the feedlot owner as he will not deal with the public in the selling of slaughter-bound horses.
There are no 'hard and fast' rules about shipment dates. The usual practice is the slaughter truck picks up the horses and leaves the lot on a weekly basis.
Once the horses leave the Feedlot there is no more hope of saving them.
We require no Adoption contracts and there is no mandatory quarantine. Our small assessment fees are paid by the feedlot owner. These are beautiful horses who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in a bad place.
Thank you for taking a moment to 'check us out' and please, if you have any questions, feel free to ask. We love to talk about the horses.
