Yeah, but it's harder to do that. Almost impossible if you aren't a big kill buyer

THere has been a serious upsurge in the abdonment of cats and dogs as well (I have freinds with animal shelters in NC still, and have heard from the internet all over about it) and that can't be blamed on the slaughter houses closing, and made worse with horses as thier is the years of drought coupled with ethanol production that has made feed and hay prices outrageous. The worsening economy is far more to blame. Just got done hearing on the news Circuit City is goin bankrupt, along with other well known and previously successful chains. And my friends who work for the govt. Are real tight lipped, but they are worried. It's bad, people, bad all over.

I sure wish I could help with these horses. Unfortunately, even the rescue I work heavily with is mostly on the east coast, USERL. They don't have a MN branch.....

Let us know if you get one, Moxie!

I just got an email back from the poster, and she says that there are a lot of younger horses that are needing homes, none that are well broke. My husband wouldnt go for a horse that would have to be sent to the trainer right away.

Yes, it's sad. They do have food, but I saw some that I think could use some weight. Mind you, I think the photos are old. I hope she can find a home for some. What I would do if I had tons and tons of money: take 'em all! <sigh>

Which horse sale are you refering to? If you are thinking R&J I think it will be awhile before they will be selling horses because of the fire...

I hope they can find homes soon to avoid any auction though.

Oh... I didnt realize that Long Prairie was still doing sales, I had heard that they had stopped doing that and was just doing the cattle sales. It has been awhile since I have been to that sale barn for anything.

Oh no they started horse sales again oh must be at least 5 years ago now. Tack at 6:30 horses about 8:00. As a rule not alot of horses maybe 25 to 40 head usually. No catolog horses just line up and take your spot. Pretty much run of the mill and grades but I've seen a few nice reg ones.

So sad, I heard where folks are just turning horses loose in the mts.Also just up the road from me someone was trail riding, got back to their trailer and found 2 horses tied to it w/ a note that said please care for our horses, we are broke and can't feed them.
We just went to a horse sale on sunday and there were very few there.Alot went for $100 or less.
