Bubbles sure is a clever horse!
While volunteers from Becky’s Hope Horse Rescue were intending to save some donkeys from a kill lot in Frisco, Texas, they ran into something unexpected. Bubbles the horse decided to blend in with his donkey friends, certain that no one would notice. We’re happy to report that his escape plan worked, and that Bubbles is now safe and sound at Becky’s Hope Horse Rescue. Check out his inspiring story!
Bubbles the Horse
The non-profit organization Becky’s Hope Horse Rescue Inc. traveled to Frisco, Texas in December to save a group of miniature donkeys from a kill lot. What they didn’t expect was to rescue a horse named Bubbles along the way.
Becky posted the story to Facebook saying, “When we went to bail the mini donkeys from the kill lot, this skinny, grey gelding walked straight up to our trailer, past the gates, disregarding the commands of the kill lot employees. He was intent that this was his ride out of there.” Bubbles was right!
Becky continued, “We stood there staring as this old guy with crumbled ears from frostbite waited patiently for the group of mini donkeys to catch up so he could jump on the ‘freedom trailer’ out of there. There was just no way we could leave him behind!” Becky notes that they had “just enough money left over to pay his bail. This sweet, old man won our hearts the minute he decided it was the perfect time to escape the kill lot. It seems that he thought nobody would notice him escaping if he simply mixed in with the mini donkeys!”
Now or Never
When Bubbles saw the donkeys boarding the trailer, he knew it was his ticket to a better life and decided it was now or never.
Sue Chapman, president of Becky’s Hope, says, “He’s like, ‘I’m just one of them.’ Got on the trailer with them, stood there like ‘You don’t see me,’ and kept his head kind of down.”
Bubbles is safe at his new home and now has many donkey friends. The organization has received thousands of dollars in donations thanks to his story. Now, these donations have allowed them to continue rescuing horses. Check out the video of Bubbles’s story up next!
