In their minds, they're helping that horse live a little longer life.
I don't understand how twisted the minds of these type of people are, and what has made them so cruel. And to spout off as if they have an animals interests at heart! Unconscionable.

The horse behind the filly is on the ranch where they are rescuing the animals from. It doesnt belong to the Gentle Barn. Gentle Barn even goes as far as to put their 2100 lb 18hh PMU draft gelding in a sling every four weeks to trim his hooves because it 'bothers' him to have his feet done normally due to his weight O_o

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

How awful! Those pictures just make me cringe. Sad to think how many underweight/minimal issue horses they could really save with the money they will put into that filly and for what? Horrible.
Endiku and boots like this.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Ah okay, I do hope that horse gets a trim but if it doesn't belong to them I guess there isn't much the can do about it.
Asides from this situation, sounds like they take good care of the animals they have.

Thanks for the heads up about another organization I would never donate to. My list is fairly large.

It would seem that many 'rescues' put their own desires above what is best for the horse, and then use the horse as a poster child.
No thanks.
