Feedlot horses? SAD

I saw a link on craigslist to this site. Apparently this is a feedlot in Fallon, Nevada (?). The horses are shipped out like twice a month to a slaughter house in Canada. They ask people ot sponsor or adopt the horses to get them out of the death sentance. It's sad They have arabs. Arab mares. And at a price that calls out to me. LOL
Has anyone ever bought a feedlot horse? Really bad idea?

That is one of the saddest things I've ever seen. I don't know if saddest is a word but I'm using it because it sounds appropriate! Our little Mustang gelding came from Nevada. He ended up here in Canyon City and got adopted at an auction where he was leased as a trail horse before we bought him 5 years ago. He is not the most athletic horse...I've had to move up several times since then, as my interest is in moving up the levels in Eventing...but we still have him and he is the absolute SWEETEST horse...one of the very few who are actually a 1 on the 1-10 temperment scale! He is our faithful trail horse and teacher for my little sister. You can put anyone on him and truthfully assure them that this is the safest horse they will ever ride. You can see pics of him in my barn. I don't know if he was ever in a feedlot but I can't imagine what we would've lost if he had gone there. I think a rescue is a great idea if you don't have high competition needs and have the time and patience to train and work with a horse that has probably been abused and led a very frightened life. The worst part is that these horses are advertised as "friendly...gentle...started...trained to ride...pregnant." What kind of person just abandons these horses?? It makes me angry. I'm not going to get started but...it makes me angry.
