I don't its going to be cheap, but you are always soo negative and argumentative. Find the silver lining, you might feel like a better person!

I think that is wonderful. Don't let anyone tell you can't. I am following my dream of changing horses lives. Check this site out: anything is possible if you try. You are the inspiration that keeps this WALK alive.

Yeah, putting a real number on a dream to make it a little more down to earth is not arguing. Saving horses from slaughter is not all rainbows and butterflies. And he is right. You will need to have a very large bank account.

There are people who will ONLY adopt dogs from a Humane Society or Shelter, knowing full well that they can only take in one of the MANY dogs there. Some people do the same with horses. Nothing wrong with that.

If you are wanting to hopefully start a type of rescue organization, start talking with people who already have such organizations running. Maybe go work with one. They will be able to give you the best advice for starting.

If you are just wanting your personal horses to be slaughter rescues, then the number you will be able take in will be limited.

Yes, you will need to have a very large bank account. No one is going to say that rescuing will make you money or is easier.
However, unlike was implied, rescuing horses is not fruitless because they will just be replaced by more slaughter-bound horses.

I agree a statement of fact is exactly that and like I said there seems to be people here that like to argue but it sure isn't me. As far as feeling like a better person I feel GREAT about myself have no reason at all not to.

It's like the starfish story...It matters to the horse that gets saved. (Slaughter argument aside) It takes a lot of money just to care for one horse, but if the horses taken in have significant health problems or need special shoes all that adds up very quickly. Plus some slaughter destined horses are very dangerous.
But, There is a lot of good advice in this thread & good for you wanting to make a difference - my show horse now was a neglect case, so you can make a difference, just be realistic.
