I think this is the most insensitive, ridiculous statement someone could make. No, I don't have money set aside for an emergency. I have to save up for annual teeth floatings, I have to plan trimming so I have the money. But my horse's are all well fed, healthy, up to date, and happy. But since I don't have money in case of an emergency, I should sell them? Do you really expect every horse owner to have a million dollars lying around in a bank account? It's GREAT if some people can do that, but it just can't always happen like that.
I'm sure if the horse broke it's leg, a vet would have been brought out, and a payment plan would have been set up. But alas, the horse did not break it's leg. I wouldn't call a vet out for that either.
