Firstly - you are one of thousands of others who are exactly the same as you - as you call yourself 'a half breed'. That could apply to anyone that is a result of two parents from two different nationalities - there are a lot of those in my family and none of them even think about it. Making a big deal of it isn't going to help you at all. I don't walk down the street and look at people passing me by and think 'oh look at them poor thing they are a half breed'
You say you are happy - so assume that means you are proud of your heritage - well nothing wrong with that but as far as your daily life goes and getting on with improving it its totally irrelevant
I'm still not getting what this has to do with rehoming all these horses. Do you think that Native Americans should be given some sort of a grant to be able to afford to keep them as they are a part of their heritage?
If heritage had anything to do with the right to keep a horse then we would all deserve that as all of our lives evolved around the horse as a means of transport as we moved around the world, a partner in battle, a servant in agriculture and haulage, hunting and even food itself and that goes back way further than the relationship the Native American had with the horse as they were long extinct in the US when the Spaniards arrived.
If you are genuine then I'm sorry that you are poor - but I fail to see how owning a horse can change that as thye pretty much make you even poorer
