That was actually on the wish list, which we were desperate for the blankets no doubt (things have changed since then), and I personally think that every rescue is always in need of grain/hay/vet funds/supplements/etc. We normally ended up rehoming atleast one horse before going back for another unless it came down to that last minute where it seemed like nobody else was going to be able to get the horse. At one point we were up to 18, which was way too many, but since then we have rehomed all of them except one from Camelot and one pregnant mare that we purchased locally to keep from going to slaughter. Both of them are for adoption/rehoming. My fiance` has taken over the rescue so the name changed to Stormy Knights Rescue (www.stormyknightsrescue.weebly.com
) and since we only have 6 stalls, that's the number of horses that we have at one time (we actually have 7 right now but one of them is at my parents).
Luckily the camelot horses have been getting saved by other people and rescues, so I don't feel like I have to jump to save them now since so many other people have stepped up. I will of course always be ready to go back to save one or two if the need arises but for now we have decided to tone it down alot and keep things much smaller.

It would seem to me that if you are desperate for feed and money to pay vet bills that maybe you should hold off on taking in more horses until you are in a better situation? You hear of situations like this on Fugly all the time and often they end up badly for the horses - not saying yours will, but maybe a step back in your rescueing efforts for a while is the way to go?
