that's sort of a long story, but basically if I were to not be paying Kenzie's feed and farrier bills, she'd of course still be eating, but she wouldn't be getting the diet she needs. They were just going to give her a few flakes of hay and Safe Choice feed like all of the other horses get, and I know that's not what a growing, emanciated baby needs, so I offered to pay for the feed. They supply her costal hay, but I buy the suppliments, the Mare and Foal grain, and the alfalfa pellets. Its my choice and I'm glad to do it because its helping her a lot, but it does cost a lot. Alfalfa is expensive.

They also do their own hooves (BO's hubby took a 6 week farrier course, but IMO doesn't really know what he's doing) so I've been paying for her feet to be done 'professionally' (in reality though, the farriers around here arent any better) whenever I can.

So its all by my will that I'm paying for her upkeep, and I don't mind, but it does take a pretty big chunk of my money. It would take up even more of that money if I were to own her though.

I do remember reading you stating that before now that I read that post. Then I stick by my earlier post and say you use it as you see fit. Hopefully a home is found soon and you can focus all of your amazing attention and resources on Sour.

So sorry things didn't work out This Time, but I'm hoping there is a kind heart out there that will provide Kenzie a home & what she needs to become a horse that is the apple of someone's eye. I think she will be a little too high of maintenance for the $$ you have available at this time of your life. But, I hope you lead the charge of finding her a place as you are in inspiration because of all you do despite your own problems.

I agree. No matter how I figure it, I can't find a way to have enough money to board her and have money left over for emergencies (which she seems to be prone to...lol) or that hernia surgery :/

faydesmom-Sorry it couldn't be worked out in the first time frame, but life happens, & Bugs needs you now & the other problems you mention are red flags that such a long trip may not be the right thing for Kenzie right now. It's not fair to put a filly in a situation that is not right, especially for all she's already been through. I'm happy that you stepped up & hope that makes it easier for the next person to come forward. I hope you get your property ready for your horses so they don't have to be boarded. Would like to see a picture of Bugs also at some point. Please don't feel too bad about this-you tried.

Alright guys...red, black, hunter green, or blue rope halter for Kenzie? ^_^ Kind of ugly colors. I was hoping for pink, purple, lime green...something like that, but TSC only has four colors and I need something fairly cheap since she'll (hopefully) outgrow it pretty quickly.

I've just sent a donation via Faydes to forward to Endiku. NO questions asked. I don't need to.

Faydes did ALL she could but she found that their new place had some problems and felt best to advise and hold off. I'm proud of you Faydes for seeing those problems, knowing what is best and having the guts to admit it. My hats off to you and yours.

Endiku. As I have said and EVERYONE has said. You are very much the Lady ... that we all wish we could meet and know in person. You WILL be/ARE a do'er and have accomplished some wonderful things. And your just getting started.

Thank you both and others.
