Unhappy Horse ad- makes me sad!

I think this is ok to post a link on this forum? If it is not- feel free to delete this.
I was looking at craigslist all over the many states near me yesterday and came across this ad.
Free Horse to good home

It saddened me greatly. I know some older horses are hard to keep weight on and this person probably just got this horse ( so I am definitely not posting this to blame someone)- but any horse shouldn't get this skinny IMO.
Not to mention that it has some unknown injury/limp.
I am frustrated that I can not take this horse in, or all horses like this for that matter. I guess I just wanted to post this out of frustration and sadness :(
I guess I shouldn't look at horse ads anymore
Does anyone know of any organizations I could point in this horses' direction?

How can any one be so careless not to want this horse
Sure he is thin but you can feed him and slowly walk him around
All he wants is to be loved
I hope someone takes him

I really want to take him but I will be moving out of state ( think thousands of miles) very soon and won't be able to take a horse ( not to mention one in this condition)
Feeling "helpless to help" here :(

Gosh... so depressing to see. I wish I could open a horse rescue and take in guys like this :(

He could need his teeth done and/or worming. Sometimes it's not the amount of food being fed, it is the horse's ability to utilize it.

So sad. If I lived near this place, I would probably go and get him. Is there any horse rescue in your area you can contact about this guy? They may be able to get him and adopt him out properly.

I would be curious to see why he is limping then you will know what is best for the horse's situation. Sorry for saying this but if this owner can not spare a few hundred bucks for exrays, how can she/he even afford the other horse if finances are that tight? How can someone look at that animal knowing they are "uncomfortable" and not do anything about it?
