No. We didn't 'adopt.' These were ones that had been offered for adoption time and again. Their next stop would have been one of those feedlot type outfits that take money to warehouse them. What... aren't there over 30,000 being warehoused right now.
We also didn't have to have certain fences, certain shelters, none of that. $35/each and we took them home.
I had to go to town every day and the kids, 3 teenaged daughters, were stuck at the ranch. It gave them something to do. Actually, kept them quite busy. Sibling fight? Go cry to your horse. Bored? Go work your horse. Want to get out of scrubbing the house? Tell me you're going to spend the day with your horse. You think your two are ready to go? Better be safe enough for mom to climb on like a raw newbie and not be bothered a bit.
