There is a difference between a donated horse and one that is surrendered. Occasionally responsible horse owners will donate their healthy, well-tempered, nicely trained horse to a rescue with the idea that the rescue will be able to sell the horse for a pretty penny and thus have more funds to apply to the horses in need.

A surrendered horse is one that is old, thin, unbroke, lame... etc etc which the owner no longer wants to be responsible for.

Wow.. if you have a horse you No longer want, have outgrown, etc, cannot sell it ?, you can Surrender the horse, some rescues take owner surrender animals and give you a receipt for tax write offs. The rescues then sell these horses again the new owner gets a tax write off receipt. I think this is kinda the point Acorn was making, and Acorn was not judging anyone

I have a little difference of opinion on the word surrendered. I don't believe they are all lame, thin, unbroken etc. There are quite a bit of them that are prefectly fine just can't be cared for anymore for whatever reasons from financial difficulties to health problems so they are signed over to the rescue as a owner surrender.
