Cowgirl, I can't imagine this woman soliciting horses from people who can no longer keep them. Rescues rely on donations but the sale of the saleable horses. People will show up and plead their case and some will threaten to put the horse down if someone doesn't take it. It can be hard to turn the animal away. When times are tough, donations dry up. Many good hearted rescues wound up in the same bad situation. There is a notion amongst many that rescues shouldn't be sold, just adopted out but human nature is more inclined to look after something much better that costs hard earned cash than freebies. We see that often with free kittens. Why pay the vet, just get another one.
