How to save a life

There are at least 5 young Belgians that are going to an auction friday, I have a chance to save some. I've talked to my dad about it before and he didn't like the idea of me getting more horses, but I really want to do this.
I've done it before for these people, except I kept Flossie and Bethany, I'd take probably one or two and halter break them basic ground training more if they're ready, since they'd have some basic training they'd have a better chance of getting homes that don't lead to the slaughter house.
The best thing about it is, the guy is giving them to me if I want them, he's a nice old man, he just can't care for his horses anymore and has to get rid of them somehow.
There is also this beautiful belgian he has, she's massive, I've always loved her, she's good with people but just needs training, if I can't take the babies I'd at least like her because that's his favorite horse and I know it has to be hard to get rid of her like that.
I think I have belgian fever. I know I can't save them all, I'd at least like to get the oldest one because she'd be good slaughter prospect.
Just had to get this all out,
thanks for readin!
