you would take the time to visit our website you would realize the actual story, but it's a lot easier to pick and complain at people that are doing hard work making a difference in horses lives.
Originally 10 horses were earmarked for rescue, but thanks to the generous donations of horse lovers and the Tazzy Animal Rescue Fund, (www.tazzyfund.com
) we were in the end able to rescue many more this time.
Rotting in a field of pain? What does that have to do with the topic at hand? Very confusing. These horses are placed only in carefully pre-screened adopters (much closer than BLM) and so does the other rescues that these horses that are saved are going to.
Half the horses that go are in terrible shape.
How many feedlots have you visited? The feedlots want
fat, healthy horses that are able to make the 3 day trip without dying first. Mexico will take whatever is still breathing, but they pay a lot less than Canada. Many breeders over in Nevada (and I'm sure all around the nation but I cannot say that for sure) breed horses that they never plan on doing anything with other than cashing in for slaughter. Is it the horses fault they were born?
As I said before I have personally rescued many horses. I would go to the local auction and try to pick out 1 or 2 horses that I thought would be able to be saved. Quite often I was bidding against the slaughter buyers (back when it was legal) since we knew who they were.
Bravo for you! That is exactly
how we got started, but if you're not careful, it will snowball until you are organizing multi-dozen at a time rescues. Note our saying below our website address in our signature...
