Yes, THAT Rio. For those who don't know, Rio's previous owner was a regular here, so it's sad to see that he appears to have ended up in a rescue. I came across a CL ad today that was using RD's old avatar (Rio). Pretty Arabain At first I thought this must be a scam (and it might). But I contacted the rescue and they claim it's real. They have videos of him on their Facebook. Oregon Animal Rescue | Facebook The rescue said that Rio (possibly going by the name Rosco now) and his companion (a bay mare) were purchased from a feedlot. The woman who purchased them found them to be too much to handle, so she dropped them off at the rescue. They appear to be in decent condition. As for the photo, I'm guessing that whoever sold him to the feedlot provided the photo (or maybe this was a horse trader who simply purchased Rio), and then they used the same photo to advertise him so the woman got the photo, and then also provided it to rescue? I know it's a stretch. Is this actually Rio? Anyone in the OR area want to go check this out? Rio always seemed like such a cool horse, I hope he lands softly. *I do apologize if this thread is in poor taste. We don't need to make this about RD, just about Rio. He was a popular horse on this board, so it's just sad to see him in a rescue (if this is legit).
