Should I do it???


This little girl has been on Craigslist for the past couple weeks with no takers. A lady wrote a reply to this add saying that this poor little girl has been really neglected and is under weight, that everyone should keep flagging the add.

Now at the rescue they told me if their was ever a horse I found that I really liked I could bring it to the rescue. I'm not super experienced with horses, however they are. I know absolutely nothing about breaking a horse or training, but I'm sure I could sucker them into doing it for me, or helping. If all else fails, I could hire a trainer.

This is the kind of thing we do, find adused or neglected horses and give them a good home. The thing is would this be too big of a challenge for me? Spirit is in her 30s, and wont last forever, but a 21 month olf filly is a lot of work.

I'm stuck on this, opinions please?

I would take it to the rescue if it were me.

I agree talk it over with the rescue and see if they will take her and let you help with her care.

Striving to always excel in everything I do. Whether I fail or not I always try to do better than last time.
