IJADA is 20-years-old. On November 4, 2019 we saved her life.
Without our intervention she would have shipped into Mexico to be slaughtered.
In late October of 2019, IJADA was bought by a Kill Broker at a livestock auction in Louisiana. She was one of several Thoroughbreds who had been culled by a large breeding operation. When the Lone Star Kill Pen published the identities of the horses, several Individuals and Rescues stepped up to save their lives. But none came forward for IJADA.
Through the generosity of Madeleine Paulson, the widow of Ijada's breeder Allen Paulson, and an army of advocates, Unbridled raised the money to save Ijada from shipping to slaughter. When she was picked up from the Justin, TX holding hub of the Kill Pen, her fir was matted with manure and the muck that caked her legs cloaked lacerations she suffered while enduring the slaughter pipeline.
After a veterinary evaluation and much needed medications to address a respiratory infection and a gaping wound on her left hock, IJADA began her recovery in quarantine. In April of 2020, IJADA joined her forever family at Unbridled in New York. With an abundance of love and nourishment, she blossomed and her gentle nature revealed the sweetness of her soul.
In 2021, 'JADE' captured the heart of Melodee James, and moved into her new life as a teacher beside Miss Minstrell at Mud Hollow Farm in Troy, New York. Senior mares like JADE have much life, light, and love to give.
