    Most rescues charge an 'adoption' fee, so you are still buying a horse.

    WITH ur money going towards a good cause I might add Either way from auction or rescue your still saving a horses' life so does it really matter when you get down to the purpose? I think not.

    If you want a horse you truely rescued and are working with from day one of its new life, go to the auctions. Horses in rescue centers have been picked up, worked with for possibly months and are then adopted by people. These adopters must be gentle and understanding, but they haven't done what you said you want to do- rescue from another ending.

    I am a re-homing officer for a horse charity in the UK we are full to capacity and cannot take more cases on until previous rescues re-homed (which is the case worldwide) so please please go for it!!!! Every horse is saved wether from the meatman or charity don't really understand dispute there? Just google your nearest centre and go along or at the sale im sure it will be obvious who has a one way ticket. Please let us know would love to see your new horses journey x

    I am not saying buying a horse from an auction is not rescuing it, I know it is. I am just saying I want one that I can see a change in. Like underwight, worms, bad feet, like one that is in rought shape that after a year or so I can see a defference in that hore. A horse that I KNOW would not live with out my help. At an auction just because I buy a horse does not mean I saved it it may have gone to someone who was going to do great things with that horse.

    I guess what I relly want to know is where the rescues get there horses from?

    A lot of times private owners who surrender them, or less commonly from AC seizures. Or from auction!

    Check kijiji or craigslist. But just know that a Starvin' Marvin horse is not unlikely to come with a whole host of training issues and required vet bills. At least you know what you're getting when you adopt from a rescue...

    Thank you, I don't really need to know what I am getting. As far as training issues and things go I could care less, I just wanna save a life! I tend to go for the horses I know nothing about even when buyin a work horse.

    Go to Candiac and outbid the meat man, it's a rescue as far as I'm concerned.

    Join this group and post what you are looking for

    Monitor Kijiji or put an ad on there

    Other than that speak to people, make it known, talk to your vet, farrier, trainer, I've had 3 free horses offered to me over the last year, they are out there.

    I say go for a old one. I rescued a old mare a few years back, they were DONE with her and she was going too be headed too slaughter. I only had her for a little over a year before the vet had too put her down, BUT that was the best year she ever had. She was also THE BEST horse, she knew.
    I would love too buy TONS of land someday and have a bunch of old gals and guys!!
