    Unhappy In a dilemma..

    So to make a really long story a short, a horse I love and used to shareboard is in a "rescue" where he isnt being properly taken care of. Sadly I don't have the funds to adopt him myself, but want to at least get him out of this bad situation. I've tried calling the rescue owner to at least have a visit with him, but she's always too busy, I'ts been a year since I last saw him and I'm missing him dearly. I don't knkow what to do. I've contacted my auint in Colorado who used to be the president of the colorado horse protection league, but I'm still in a dilemm.. help?

    If they really aren't taking care of the horses you can report them - but if its just not up to "your standard" think that they were probably worse off before they came there.

    There probably isn't much you can do. The owner is probably very busy with horses, and possibly another job, and I can imagine she doesn't want a kid running around visiting the horses if you have no intention of purchasing any. If you're not willing to become the owner of a horse, and take on the cost/burden, then really there isn't a huge amount of say you have in a horses future.

    You could offer to help out there, but if she doesn't want you visiting she probably doesn't want your help. If you want to visit him the best course of action would probably be to get one of your parents to call and ask to look at some of the horses.

    Well, im not the only one who knows she doesnt take care of horses. I just talked to a friends mom who had seen Apollo a few months ago and to my horror she explained that Apollo has dropped alot of weight.. To the point where she said he might be dead by now. Everyone that owns a horse that I know dreads the thought of their horse ending up in her "rescue". Its been dubbed the "horse hell". Yes I know there isnt much I can do, I was aware of that fact when I posted this. That's the reason I posted it, to find out what there was I could do. No, im no kid, yes im a young teen, but not a fool who goes "running around". If I was ever to visit that place again, I would respect her rules even though she is doing more harm then good to the horses.. At this point, all I need is photo evidence to prove the cruelty that is going on there, but I dnt have a way of getting it quite yet. Thanks for the reply..

    Why not just try to buy him from the "rescue"? It would make it one less horse for the owner to deal with and she would have some money to help feed the other "rescues"... Then you would own Apollo..........

    Sadly, my parents are divorced and my mother doesn't have the funds for a horse.
