Beauty at the Beast – The Headless Horseman Rides Again

Rescued Majestic Horse Slated for Slaughter will make Appearances at the Beast

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Oct. 23, 2020 - PRLog -- According to the Humane Society, over 100,000 horses are sent to slaughter annually in the U.S., and rehoming is rare despite the vast majority are considered in good condition. However, one fortunate Blue Roan Quarter horse has been saved from an eastern Texas kill shelter and will make special appearances with the headless horseman atop this beauty at the Beast Haunted House in Kansas City's West Bottoms.

Though Kansas City's acclaimed haunted houses, the Beast and Edge of Hell, have no mercy scaring people, they have a passion for caring for animals. Aside from the bats, they appreciate flying freely in the area; these haunt creators have the world's record-breaking snake, Medusa – who earns her keep addressing snake phobias at the Edge of Hell. The haunt also keeps some rats for the show.

The Beast has a gator, a tarantula, and now with the new acquisition, a horse for the Headless Horseman. Amber Arnett-Bequeaith, also known as the Queen of Haunts, has incorporated her horses in the haunted attractions and festivals her family started until a few years ago when her horse retired.

"Some horses love being in the show, and some don't. When we find a horse that loves it as much as the haunt fans love to see them, we know we have a winner," said Arnett-Bequeaith. "Sometimes, you just follow your heart and I had to save one I saw online. I went to the shelter where they were to be slaughtered and found this perfect mare. I would've saved more if possible."

"We've named her Blueberry Sapphire. From the moment I touched her I could tell she longed for attention. We gave her a test run and were pleased she loved the attention," Arnett-Bequeaith added.  The haunt has set up a GoFundMe to help pay the $50,000 for Blueberry's care, and to acquire and care for four additional horse-mates for Blueberry that could perform at the Edge of Hell as the Biblical four horsemen of the apocalypse. The Headless Horseman will ride again but his horse needs some friends.

For haunt fans looking to make a donation to help animals and save on tickets, the haunts will accept cans of dog and cat food in exchange for $5-off per ticket. The cans will be donated to the Great Plains SPCA Pet Adoption Center.

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Nov 28, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Nov 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Nov 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Nov 28, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Nov 28, 2020

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...
