Rogue is a mini pony rescuers are saving from the slaughter house.
This mini pony was scheduled to be slaughtered if his bail was not paid by rescuers. Rescuers know this is out of our ordinary, but volunteers could not turn their backs on him. They named this baby boy Rogue Renegade as he was not even given a name. He is approximately 9 months old and only 28" tall. He was being shipped to slaughter in Canada. New York Bully Crew immediately went into action to pay his bail and transport him to receive emergency care.
This will be the first time this little guy has received any care at all. Rogue’s eyes are extremely infected and covered in puss. He has an upper respiratory infection and being emaciated. His coat is severely matted and he is in desperate need of proper care for a unique animal like a mini pony.
He will be quarantined for 4 weeks as disease is prevalent in these situations, he will be completely vetted, vaccinated and have the farrier take care of his feet.
Rescuers were not willing to take the chance that this pony would be slaughtered. When slaughtered he would have been used for consumption. With NO GUARANTEES that this would not happen, rescuers chose to take a stand knowing he would get the chance to live and at only 9 months old, he has many years ahead of him.

UPDATE 4-2-19: Rogue’s visit to Dr. B confirmed extreme parasites, deformation in his rear legs and vision deficits. He did lay down for the first time since he was rescued. What that means is that he has not felt safe or sure of his surroundings since today. Small but important progress in his recovery.
