    Great they are good girls I've recently rescued 2 (and paid for both) and they turned out to be so sweet the one is so calm I can put my daughters on her and lead her around (I've only got on her once ) they came at different times and the other has been sick so I've only done minimal with her but she is so sweet (now that she quit biting)

    What a beautiful story, and a beautiful mare too, both inside and out, I can tell. I was nearly in tears myself when I read about her finally arriving to your place. You are an amazing, wonderful person, and I know that's been said before in this thread, but you deserve every one of them and more for what you did. Your generosity, patience, and kindness are inspiring, just as your horse's is too. I really want to hear more as time goes on! Updates, please?

    I cried reading this, both with anger and with joy. This is the very thing I have seen so called professionals do, and worse. They train those poor horses to not move or flinch when they are being 'checked' so the judges can't tell the horses are sore. I hate it, hate it, HATE IT!!!! It is one of the worse kinds of abuse, and it is promoted by judges who reward the 'Big Lick.' I would love to rescue one of these horses, but I will NEVER be involved with an 'industry' that allows this to happen to horses. I will never be 'into' gaited or walkin horses because of this. I would rescue them, let them live lives NORMAL horses are supposed to have (turnout, carrots, friskin with other horses in the pasture, no legs soaked in caustic chemicals and torture devices nailed to the feet) nut I would never show or compete. When I was at a show lately, they had a 'big licker' there, chains and all. My hubby wouldn't even let me NEAR them, kowing how my mouth is. But other horse people seemed to shun them too, which made me happy. Nailing bbs under thier toenails and painting chemicals on thier legs and hanging chains on thier feet and making them goosestep around wudda really made me feel better...

    Bless you, bless you for helping this mare. I would love to see the abuse rampant in that part of the industry outlawwed and persecuted. Good people like you make up for all the ***s in the world......
