I'd rather take a not so perfect horse and turn them into a beautiful horse that is well taken care of! I have a soft spot for all animals. That's the main reason I bought Max, he was really bad off where he was and he'll have a great home with us!
Good for you. They can be hard work but in the right hands can become absolutely amazing. There is a horse on the current hunter circuit, a grey gelding whom from what I understand actually came out of the meat pen. He somehow got picked out and brought home by this young rider who could not afford one of those "high end" warmbloods. She trained him, worked thru a few things he misunderstand and wanted no part of and since the day she started showing, she's either won her classes or done really well. She won a provincial title with that horse hmmm... 3 years ago I believe?
Good for you. If only more people had the same attitude towards the "unwanted" horse population.
