OTIS
7-5-2019: A TIER supporter who helps horses in Kill Pens in Texas reached out to us and was willing to pay purchase price and transport costs from the feedlot to Quarantine for a really nice mule if TIER would take him in.

The Ad read:
June 28 - 12 year old gelding mule. 14.3 hands. Very gentle and broke to ride and work.
He, like so many others, do not deserve this fate. He sat in the "Ship Pen" waiting to be loaded with others on a journey of unimaginable horror, fear, confusion and ultimately a cruel death. He was purchased this morning (7/6/2019) before he was to be shipped. This lovely Dun Mule with the high white socks has been named OTIS.

7/13/2019 - I am Armored!

Thank you to the TIER supporters who have contributed to help me get to TIER!  Because of your caring, I am now armored against those pesky flies!  Lookin Good!

My next great adventure will be on Monday, 7/15/2019.  I have an appointment with the farrier thanks to you!

7/11/2019 - I now have friends!

QT UPDATE:  We had an escape this morning. Well not really an escape but Otis was at one end of the pen ignoring me while I was trying to figure out how to get him better shade at the other end. Next thing I knew he had his head over the fence introducing himself to my gelding and donkey, so I left him. He has more grass, better visibility, better airflow, better shade. I'm not worried but of course will monitor closely.


He is happier and has a huge oak tree to stand under during the day so lots of air movement and great shade.  My donkey isn’t happy but my gelding seems to approve of the new neighbor. Not one single scream and for a guy that was a stallion for 18 years that’s something.


7/6/2019 - Otis has landed at Quarantine!!

UPDATE from owner of Quarantine Facility

ARRIVAL: Pretty well behaved. Loaded and unloaded well.  A bit jittery but let me walk up to him and love on him after I turned him loose. He's looking for a friend. He was bonded to a paint that was in the ship pen with him.

LATER IN THE DAY: He's had a little to drink and has shown only modest interest in hay. Will see what the morning brings. He's chilling in the corner where he can't see anything. He welcomes scratches and tolerates my hugs. I like him a lot. He has shoulder bars like a dun.
