In the last couple of weeks I have had to turn down 3 offers for "free" horses. I put the quotes around free since we all know they are really not.
I have my hands full with my two mares one who is currently injured and receiving treatments three times a day. Plus I just put up all the hay I need for the winter and am in middle of changing jobs, in other words I am pretty broke. So even though they may end up being great horses I have had to turn them down.
Is anyone else experiencing this? I know my trainer is has had similar offers that she has had to turn down as she is full, too. It must be the economy plus the regretful results of "lets breed 'em 'cause we got 'em" practices.
