    Sorry to double but I wanted to bring your attention to a few of these horses:

    This mare is unbroke and going now where and I can see OBVIOUS potential. She is lacking muscle but her conformation, from what I can tell from that picture, is show safe.

    Good mare whom seems like she'd be fine to break given the temperament and friendliness described. Cute trot too. Price unlisted.

    Cute grade that has half the work done for you. Looks strong and sturdy more of a WP horse.

    Seems like a fine horse going to waste again a "don't-have-time" excuse.

    "Dont-Have-Time" again. Sounds like a sweet horse, especially since she said he's saddle broke and been backed and hardly even 3 years old.

    If you really want a project horse here is a mare for you.

    This horse sounds like he needs a gentler hand, horses aren't born headshy you know...

    He doesn't seem to be in need of rescue but he's cute

    That's all I've found. :}

    Thank you very much, Abby! I emailed a lot of the owners, we'll see what happens... :)

    If anyone else can look for horses and/or have recommendations, I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada... so any help is appreciated!!

    I found this PMU rescue organization. Not sure where in Alberta these are, I know that's a big Province.

    Here the results if you just search Alberta
    Not sure on the prices of these horses, guess you have to contact them.

    Edit: I just noticed some have prices but it includes transportation costs within 2000 miles so I'm sure the price would be less if you did your own pick up

    Thanks Vida!!
    Wow, I can't believe the prices on some of these horses... If I were a rescue, I think I'd make prices more reasonable....

    Also, what are your thoughts on rescuing from a PMU rancher? I've heard arguments that the ranchers bank on the rescues to take their horses so they don't have to worry about selling... there's always a market for the "poor PMU mares/foals" because nobody is saying "no! I won't buy your horse" to put them out of business?

    I haven't heard anything about the PMU ranches but I suppose anything can be turned into a racket/scam. I thought they were pricey, wonder how much of that is the transportation costs
