    I got a skin and bones mare 18 years ago that was part of a herd of starving horses. She is 33 now. She got all the grass she could eat and she ate 24/7 for 2 days + 14% protein horse feed and later hay. Also got another mare not quite as bad and a stallion who was bought by the kill buyer and was on her trailer. When I found where he was going I paid her extra over her bid and took him home also. He was not thin. I got him gelded. lists convicted animal abusers of all kinds. Somebody in the county I live in got convicted 3 times starting in the 1980's. The third time they finally forbade him to ever own any horses ever again. He had locked some of the horses in stalls and nailed the doors shut and they were dead and there were emaciated ones outside. I do not know if that case got listed or not.

    Wow, that is an amazing transformation. Good for you taking those horses in. I hate seeing when something like that happens to a good horse.

    I think its awsome that these horse get a second chance anyone that has the heart to take them on is just a wonderful person in my book . The horses deserve a second chance by all means

    Could it be some of these horses are for sale because the owner came across hard times (especially in this economy) and can no longer care for them and so is selling them? Its not a 100% excuse, but atleast some of these owners are selling them instead of just hiding them out back until the horse starves to death - which has happened locally a lot.

    It can take a while to sell a horse right now and many of the rescues are so full they aren't taking on any more horses. This area has actually gotten a little bit better with it with the opening of the Humane Center. They will put horses down like a regular shelter for cats and dogs when they get too full or are otherwise unadoptable, but at least they have a chance and they aren't allowed to starve. It was real bad in this area before people had that option.
