Unbeknownst to the hundreds of folks that lined Denrock for the Annual XIT parade, there was a sassy little mare that left Dalhart in January of 2013 when her situation looked very gloomy.
No one knew her name when she was seized by court order by the Dallam County Sheriff’s Office, but she has a name now, Penny. “It is amazing what food, water and TLC can do,” stated Dallam County Sheriff, Bruce Scott.
Sheriff Scott contacted Tabatha Seymore, who works for NWS/NOAA in Amarillo. Sheriff Scott knew Seymore had horses. The Dallam County Sheriff and his deputies were diligent in finding a peaceful refuge for these mistreated and abused beauties. “I asked Seymore if she knew anyone who could take a mistreated starving horse,” Sheriff Scott explained. Seymore told Sheriff Scott she would be interested in giving the young mare a home.
