Blind Filly And Orphaned Mule From Loreto Find New Homes In The U. S. -->> - On a journey that began May 31, a blind Pinto filly named Deli (Delicata for delicate in Spanish) and her best buddy, Macho, an orphaned mule, embarked on an arduous 16-day trip from Loreto, BCS to HartSong Ranch Animal Sanctuary in Greenwood near Sacramento in Northern California.
Their journey began as Patrick McGorky, founder of the animal rescue organization Segunda Chansa and the man who saved Deli and Macho, took them on a three-day drive through the Baja desert. After the drive, the equines have to spend time in a quarantine corral in San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico. The quarantine period is a concern. Although there is a caretaker, McGorky has no access to them for this duration. Once the equines are cleared by the veterinarian for travel, McGorky will transport Deli and Macho to their ultimate destination in Greenwood.
Their journeys actually began long before this one. Deli's heart-wrenching circumstance was discovered by Dr. Liz Bracken, a retired U.S. vet living in Loreto, BCS, on a visit to a local rancher who had requested medical attention for a sick gelding on his property.
