    And I am not a rescue. I said that they have a licensed rescue at the barn where I board. I volunteer there.

    AC has released horses into rescues when they don't have space. They DO require an adoption contract and application. The rescue usually looks at all horses and chooses the ones that need the most help. Then animal control takes the horses in better condition that can be adopted out immediately after the courts decision. Rescues take the ones needing most help and rehabilitates them. Then they adopt the horses out with adoption contract and fee. Part of the fee stays with the rescue, part of the fee goes to animal control. It's a win win for everyone.

    Guess I should have been a little clearer stating exactly what would happen. Geez

    I got what you meant. They do the same thing in this state. It has to be a licensed non-profit organization. There are state laws that pertain to nothing but horse rescue facilities. And, the state will place animals they sieze at designated facilities for care until a verdict, if any, is arrived at. Sometimes they are abandoned, and no one is ever charged.

    I hope you can get her.

    If you want the filly, I'd say go ahead and buy her, even if the other horses on the property are about to be seized. The seized horses are still property of the owner until he's gone through court and a judge signs off on them being permanently seized. What that means is that you could end up taking this filly, spending $$$ getting her feet (and any other problems righted) only to have to give her back to the negligent owner months later due to some technicality.

    My experience is that the purchase price of a horse is the smallest cost you will incur, especially if the horse needs any kind of rehabilitation.
