Hello Copper is an extremely sweet and gentle gelding who was rescued from slaughter in Utah by Shiloh Horse Rescue. Copper was brought into the auction by his owner who runs the Red Rock Riding Stables in Las Vegas. Copper, and 6 other horse he brought in, were Dude String horses. They could no longer be ridden for hours at a time, so they were brought to the auction. Copper is called "Hello Copper", because his previous owner, as he lead him to the slaughter pen, said with no emotion, "Goodbye Copper" and walked away leaving the old horse to his fate. After 10 years working for this man, this is what he did, dumped Copper at a slaughter auction. Shiloh Horse Rescue outbid the Killer buyer for Copper.
Shiloh adopted out "Hello Copper" to a good home......
Sad news as "Hello Copper" was peacefully euthanised in his adoptive home. He was a beloved member of his family and is badly missed. His arthritis, age, and former life of very hard work on the dude string ranch, had caught up with him and it was decided that he was ready to go to Greener Pastures. His adopted family expressed their love for him by saying that "he was the best first horse they could have ever had and that they learned so much from him." Hello Copper was very spoiled, cared for, and loved for the last 10 months of his life, what else could we, or he, ask for? Rest In Peace and Goodbye, our friend, Copper.
The RED ROCK RIDING STABLES in Las Vegas obviously cares nothing about their horses and their horses are nothing but a commodity to them. Something to make them money. It's a shame that this horse endured a hard life to only find himself at a slaughter house auction by the hands of his owner, (Red Rock Riding Stables). If it were me, I wouldn't give this guy any of my business. We should all take a stand and report this guy and his cold hearted treatment he gives his horses, what do you think?
Are you doing all you can to make this world a better place to live in?
