    Hi- Sara said that she won't be able to make it over there- she is out of state for a few weeks due to her mom falling and breaking her hip down in TX. I'm sorry. If I do end up heading that way anytime soon I will let you know!!

    Well, she sold her now so I guess we don't need to worry about that, but it is so nice of you to even consider it!!!
    Thanks again :)

    Check out your local PMU rescues-great horses, lots of draft crosses. That's where I got my boy and he is the best horse I've ever had :)

    PMU's are usually from Canada, the by-product of the Premarin industry. Mares are bred and their urine is collected while pregnant so that the hormones can be extracted and used on post-menopausal women. The foals are sold for meat...... There are rescues in the US that bring down truckloads of the foals. There are less of them since Premarin was found to increase odds of certain kinds of cancer. Equine Voices Rescue & Sanctuary™ - Horses Available for Adoption - Call 520-398-2814 Here some examples of PMU's. Minnesota Hooved Animal Rescue Foundation Here's a MN rescue, don't know that they have PMU's....

    Ok not to rain on anyones parade about the MN Hooved animal rescue- but I would never adopt from them. A lady I know adopted 2 horses from them, and when she moved them from the pasture on one side of the road to the other side of the road they confiscated the horses because she "failed to notify them of the horses being moved" to another location. You never own the horses, they always belong to MNHAR and you cannot make any medical decisions for them, even end of life decisions in an emergency. They can pull the horses anytime they feel like it.

    There are other horse rescues in the state, but there isn't very many draft horses that come into rescue.

    One place you could check out would be Great Expectations Ranch in Pillager. Great Expectations Ranch They buy and sell auction horses and usually get a good feel for them. I've never seen them sell a horse for more than 500-600$.
