RC Quarter Horses – Special Services
- To maintain, preserve and care for the more than 400 horses, livestock and other animals of which the USDOJ took immediate possession.
- The animals needed to be inventoried, cared for and possibly relocated (for medical reasons) to other properties better equipped to handle the animals’ needs.
- Coordinate shelter, food, medical care, grooming, veterinary services and competitive-level training until a sale date for the animals was determined.
- The Rally team worked directly with USDOJ representatives, local and state law enforcement and other professionals to establish a budget for the daily care of all animals.
- Rally immediately hired back Crundwell’s farm hands, hired additional employees and engaged other service providers to assess current situation as well as to quickly protect and care for livestock.
- The team quickly developed an inventory system, as well as a way to track the animals though the ranch system.
- Each horse was carefully monitored, compliant with veterinary and farrier necessities.
- A detailed record for each horse was maintained through the entire process.
- Rally was at the ranch from April-September 2012. An auction was conducted on September 23, 2012, for substantially all of Crundwell’s assets.
- Each of the more than 400 horses, as well as other assets, including jewelry, motor vehicles and real estate, were sold through the auction for an approximate total of $11 million.
- To date, the City of Dixon has realized approximately $40 million in recovery through asset sales and those proceeds have been returned to the taxpayers of the City of Dixon.
