I ddin't exactly save her from the kill pen but she was really rescued form a bad ownership. No money interaction. She was taken by us the moment she was seen by us.
She was beaten and still has trust issues today.

Around here, if you put a horse in at certain auctions, 90% of the time, it the slaughter house shippers that buy them, there is about 4 or 5. They are at every low end auction and another lady that buys what she can before they can buy them. She rescues them, she is doing a good thing, but I have to say, she's a bit of a nut. She doesn't think horses should be ridden, "it's not natural". Some lazy horses must've put a bug in her ear!

perseption is reality. People form opinions and ideas based on what the ysee and hear. So sometime a subject such as this, which has huge outcomes/factors/etc. can get touchy based on a difference of said opinion.

So maybe just ask for any rescues pictures would be better? Pics of any of ur lovable hooved friends taken from a bad place into a more loving situation?
I was looking for pictures of horses saved from the kill pen. But clearly I have come to the wrong forum for this. I don't have time for people who cannot act like grown ups....

haha waresbear that's almost what happened with my colt and his dam. The guy I got his dam from was an older guy....more money than he knew what to do with so he made a habit of going to the slaughter house and buying as many as he could....
He ended up cith Candy- Charlies dam--7 yr old mare about 9 months preggo...never been handlesd, never had her feet trimmed...pretty wild...and when my mares foal was still born the guy (whose a friend of my moms father) offered to let me have her and the baby

First off, I'd like to say welcome to the forum. Unfortunately I don't have pictures for you because my mare wasn't a rescue, but I'm glad you gave her a good home. It's sad that some people can't be more respectful when replying. I don't go on here very much anymore because of it. Whether you said it right or not doesn't matter, the fact is that you gave her a good home. I applaud you for that.

Ahh...don't take it personal. There's just some people on this forum that obviously don't have anything else to do with their lives than gripe and complain at others through a computer.

There are also MANY wonderful people on here that are always willing to help and are very kind in their approach! Bless you for taking in Gracie. She's a beauty!

I understand but that's not always a cut and dry thing. I was merely asking if maybe you could broaden what you want...instead of just horses saved from the kill pen, have horses saved from extreme abuse/neglect/etc. so as to smooth things out. I don't think jumping down peoples throat who are trying to gauge what you meant and insulting them would really help to calm everybody down.

Chances are if you bought a horse from a low end auction, you saved that horse from the slaughterhouse therefore you rescued it. Gracie is a lucky horse to have you!
