EDIT: ok so why don't they see WHY she is lame before trying to get rid of her..

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~

Here is your chance to own a retired race horse!
Oliver is a 6 year old Chestnut Gelding. He is a prior high dollar race horse. He has had some professional dressage training and has been in one dressage show!! He is extremely sweet.
$1,800

Seems a bit pricy for a horse that has been in one show, even with professional training.

Some rescues are off their rocker! On a somewhat different note - we were looking to adopt a kitten a few months ago - various animal rescues wanted between 60 - 120 for the freakin thing. Another wouldnt let us adopt until we supplied bank statements, confirmation of employment and they needed to do 3 drop-in un announced home checks before they would allow us to take one. SERIOUSLY???

We ended up with two randomly driving by a rescue I wasn't familiar with - we donated 20 and left with two kittens. They were happy the kitten had a home and they could make room for the inevitable kittens that will replace them.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

I especially love those kinds of ads that they paid for the ad, don't fill in all the basic information, including temperament... or the pedigree of said high dollar race horse

Oh I know and they wonder why they can't place any animals. Because apparently you have to be a millionaire to be good enough for their rescue animals! I don't even deal with rescues. I go to the pound because I know I'm saving an animal from gettin put down and it's cheap and you don't have to be investigated by the freaking CIA to get a dog.

our local shelter isn't that bad at least. We have gotten 3 dogs from them with no problem!

Ya the shelters are not bad. It's the rescues that ask for your dominant arm and leg and your firstborn child

I know they have a job to do and expenses to pay... but seriously, €120 for a cat? If I'm goin to pay that for a flippin cat it darn well wants to be able to make my dinner and clean my house.

I swear, I get asked less questions to renew my GNIB card to stay in this country than I was when tryin to adopt a cat.

I saw a cat on our local Kijiji ads for $850. I wanted my sister to buy it just so I could tell people she had a $850 Rag cat.

haha! An 850 dollar cat?! Are you kidding me?! Well it is certainly easier to feed than an 850 dollar horse :)
