Eclipse, I think we are just beginning to see a deluge of horses hit the market/rescues. At least these people are advertising for new homes, instead of just dumping them out in forests and parks or farm communities for people to find. I told my hubby today that even though we have enough hay for us, we need to get more for next year just in case we get hit in west central Missouri with another drought or a flood in 2013. One year's worth just doesn't make me feel secure anymore.
And, yes, your babies are very very lucky and they have no idea!
