    I doubt they are all exactly that old. They probably just used the age of one for all since they look about the same size. Obviously if they were all that exact age they would have had to have been born on the same day.

    I going to call and talk this person about them.

    Ok. Well the person said all the foals were gone. But informed me they'd keep my number if they get more.

    I'll let everyone make their own assumptions about that.

    Yeah. By the tone of her voice this is not a rare thing to happen. I didn't ask much more, but told her I would appreciate if she did let me know if this situation happened again.

    On one hand I feel like I'm enabling this situation. In another, I can't bear to think of some of the places those babies might end up.

    I spoke with this lady earlier today. The mares went to slaughter. I think I may know her as she lives in the county I used to live in. She is a horse trader and most likely went to the sale and was given these colts when their mommas were bought and bound to slaughter. I go to some sales around here and they do give the colts away if they are small.

    I hear you and I believe I get your perspective on this, 13 acres...(?)

    IMO, good for you for being proactive and offering a potential "exit strategy" for the foals, should this "situation" -hopefully not-happen again. (In the sense that even if you can't take'em, @ least perhaps you can help these people find appropriate and loving homes for the foals...maybe through someone on HF?

    I can't see the picture what color were they? If this happens alot could they have all been sorrel? It could have been a back yard color breeder that wants to keep there sire at 100% color.

    They had a paint, bay, and three sorrels per their ad. I hope whoever bought them is aware of how much work/money these guys need until they reach an appropriate weaning age and are aware of their needs vs. someone who bought them because they were babies and doesn't know anything about horses.
