Wait, so why would you even want to PAY them for whatever services they give at this... place? Even if its 30$, I wouldn't supply them with anymore funds, apparently they aren't using it to better the facilities.. Then buy a horse off of one of the people there (again, to possibly fund him to buy ANOTHER one) just for you to keep it in the same condition, if just a little better? I would wait til you get a better place to keep him/her.
I wouldn't trust anyone in that area with any of my equine business, let alone PETA.
Oh I have been through Wendover many a times... Other than the casinos, that place is a pit with NOTHING. I always try to get my ass to Elko for lay overs when headed back that way.. It isn't a surprise to me that there isn't another viable boarding option in that town.. Practically everyone lives in trailers and works at the casinos for minimum wage (its at least 150 miles from elko, and a 150 from salt lake- there are no other options)..
While I think its nice of you to have these horses best interests at heart, do you honestly think that PETA will do anything?? Like said before, they wont do crap unless it is in their best interest media wise... same the with the HSUS..hell they sat on that chino slaughter house footage for MONTHS before releasing it, to wait for an appropriate time to get their agenda across..THESE PEOPLE DON'T GIVE TWO HOOTS ABOUT THE ANIMALS THEY CLAIM TO WANT TO SAVE. DO you honestly believe this foal will be any safer under your care in this facility? Even with surveilence? If someone has killed off a couple horses because of someone snitching what makes you think you will be immune to this?? Wendover isn't a big town.
Also, I think your pretty naive to think moving and getting a job and getting on your feet while owning a horse is going to be easy, or inexpensive.. good luck getting all that in a month.. especially when you are completely relocating. After I got divorced from my first husband, I decided to move down to kansas (2 1/2 hours away) as I had friends here to stay with, and I found a place to board with friends friends.. It took me a month to find a job (when people don't know you and your job history it makes things HARD).. plus the expense alone of before move apartment,job, boarding scouts, plus the actual moving expenses.... you better have saved up enough for at least TWO months of joblessness.. That s**t aint cheap!!
