Roux was removed from negligent owners in a joint effort between BEHS and law enforcement.  She was then awarded to BEHS by the courts. Poor Roux had a hard life before coming to BEHS:  she had a nasty scary and old injury to one eyelid and a fractured jaw.  Fortunately neither of those things stopped Roux from gaining weight and shining!  In 2013, she spent two weeks with trainers Mark and Miranda Lyon who got her started under saddle, and then she went home to be ridden on her foster home’s ranch.  She patiently waited for someone to see her potential, and that happened over two years after she came to the rescue!  Her adopter, Traci, adopted both Roux and Red Lady Tess and got to celebrate her birthday with two new horses!

Roux spent two years with adopters before they lost her due to a lightening strike.  Our sympathies go to her family.
