    Wanted: Any coming Horse Sales
    Does anyone know of an upcoming horse sale in the area?
    Or a meat buyer who will pick up?

    Friends of mine who are not experienced horse people were recently given a horse to love. He is supposedly a well broke, loving, grandkids horse.

    I went to see him to give them some tips on how to care for their new companion. I have a hard time believing this guy was ever a family horse.
    He is quiet and loves the attention, as long as it is on his terms. If not, he turns and fires, with the accuracy to connect with your head - he looks and aims.

    I don't want to see anyone hurt by this horse, so therefore not even recommending experienced horse owners / trainers to take him on.

    If anyone knows of a meat buyer, or upcoming sale, we would like to be informed, so no one get seriously injured.
    There are so many wonderful horses out there needing homes, I'd rather see them buy a horse needing and wanting the love, without wondering about their kids safety.

    Thank you for your time & understanding
    If a horse is truly dangerous, I understand wanting to put it down. I still do not condone the meat buyer thing. The hauling for miles, the stress of the trip, not the being used for meat bothers me. A horse isn't born mean. It is something that was done, or not done (training) that makes a horse a problem horse. It shouldn't pay for human error.

    The other things is I have had horse described to me as dangerous only to find out they were wonderful horses that were owned by idiots. I wish these folks would simply do right by the horse and have him humanely euthed.

    Oh, what a horrible situation for everyone . . . The horse was probably drugged when they bought him.

    I don't understand why if he is so dangerous they wouldn't just euthanize him, though, instead of putting him through all of that stress.

    Yup, I really have to struggle with Christian thoughts when I see the utter abuse these horses are subjected to. Training? Um, no flat out abuse, that is what that is. Not necessary or beneficial at all, just cruel.

    That is terribly sad, however there are instances where a horse is deemed too dangerous (like in the movie Buck). But another part of me tells me that this person who wrote this doesn't know what they're talking about and really isn't a horse person. I don't know just kinda feels like it, but then again this horse may be too dangerous.

    How about you kindly e-mail that person just to either give him away (with telling the new owner about the horse's behavior) or have a vet humanely put him down.

    Selling him to slaughter won't do any good.

    Unless this is just another hopeless troll, I hope it is.

    It scares me that people like that own horses.

    I have sent the poster of the ad an email. I made a friendly suggestion that if the horse is that dangerous, it would probably be best for all if he were humanely put down. Hopefully they don't get angry with me! I did find another ad by this poster, and it explains the horse's behaviour below. While I do agree, the horse sounds dangerous, there are also a few things that seem off. It's too bad really...


    Wanted: Wanting to Help a Family

    Hello Everyone.
    I am wanting to help a family through a less than ideal horse experience.

    This family has a couple horse crazy kids, and have come to my place to enjoy mine. They are all loving & caring for the animals well being, but unfortunately, not alot of experience yet. I'd be happy to have them come here and ride with me all the time, but we live about an hour away making our schedules difficult to get together on.

    They had been recently given a horse to love - and they were thrilled! Found a wonderful training stable to board him at close to their home, & made sure about all his heath & farrier needs right away.
    This horse was told to be a loving, well broke, grandkids horse that hadn't seen much use in the last few years, so "rusty".

    They'd gone out multiple times to just play with him, and feed him carrots & apples - more spoiled than my horses! Lol
    At one point they started to question how well broke / kid friendly he was, when they thought something had scared the horse, and he kicked the dad. Didn't want to do anything right away, - he's an animal, and probably just got scared of somehing - right?
    Now, more recently, someone other than the parents took the kids out to see their loved horse, and went to put the youngest daughter up on him bareback. He immediately took to BUCKING, not just crow hopping (I saw a video). This girl now has fairly major knee damage, and is in a brace, won't be able to properly weigh bare for eight weeks, and long term phsio is likely needed.

    I went up to see this horse to see if I could figure out what may have happened. (I am not a trainer, but over 25yrs of horse experience, including working with some problem horses, and finishing colts). It didn't take long to see to his horse has major aggression issues. He was quite happy standing there being scratched & being fed carrots. The minute you went to catch him, he would turn & fire with deadly accuracy - he knows how to aim those back feet.
    Finally get him caught, and he wants to be in your space - and if you try to make him walk a little bit further away, he'd swing his head to push you out of the way. Try to pick up a front foot, and he'd slam it right back down. The more time spent with him, the more aggressive he got. The only time he was happy was standing still, getting the attention the way he wanted it.

    We later found out that the people who have the place where he is being boarded has had him charge the fence line.
    Both the land owner & myself have the opinion that he is not a safe family horse, and likely never will be considering his age and aggression.
    Somebody with ALOT of training experience may be able to work with him, but I personally will never trust him around my family.

    The kids are heart broken, but understand about their safety being in jeopardy.
    They are looking to rehome him, and hopefully find another horse.

    This is what I am hoping for; that they can find a horse that really does love the attention, and wont hurt the kids. I'd love to be able to find another horse for them before the injured girl is totally scared of horses from her tragic experience.
    Does anyone know of a horse that could use a loving home to help out this family?
    They are not fussy! Breed, age, size, color, gender (expect studs) does not matter. Even if the horse is underweight right now, or timid, it's okay, just one that won't hurt anyone, that they can all enjoy. They'd love to be able to saddle up and go for a short relaxing ride, just to enjoy the experience of riding.

    Maybe a lease situation would work for them too - maybe an older bompbroof horse that needs the extra attention & care than you have the time for - I'm sure they'd love to!

    If you know of a horse like this, please let me know.
    Right now they don't have any tack either, so if the option could be there for the tack too, it would be great.
    They are not expecting free, but also can't afford huge money right now with all the physio costs coming.

    Thankyou to everyone for reading this, and please stay safe - we all have friends and family who care about us.
    Merry Christmas!

    Wow that's sad. Hopefully someone will take him on. Sounds like a horse with a dominance/aggression issue for sure. I think it can be fixed with the right trainer (someone who will get this horse's respect). There's ways to fix it. But I agree that he needs a different home. He's too much for the family. At least they're honest.

    And yes I agree with the trainer being honest. Sounded funny at the time I guess :p. I wish every trainer would be open minded enough to realize that they may not be able to fix something.

    People like that also have small children and are around defenseless elderly people. If that thought doesn't wake you up out of a sweat at night, I don't know what would. There is just so much cruelty in this world. I hate that they put it up on Youtube for all to see and "learn" from.
