Another clause to be aware of that many rescues seem to have - no notice property inspection. Meaning they have the 'right' to stop in any time unannounced. If they find something they deem unacceptable - they remove the horse from the property.

There are plenty of very well trained nice horses out there that you can OWN. And do whatever you want with them. Id give her back and save your daughter future heartbreak.

It still seems flimzy to me, i hate to say it, but most 'animal rescuers' are crazy, and I think keeping the horse might just mean that your daughter bonds even more to the horse, then they take her back a few years later because she was being ridden bareback or soemthing. it will be sad, but my vote is get something you can actually have fun with, and make your own decisions with :)

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Thanks everyone for posting. I didn't get back from the barn until late last night (waiting on the vet) so I didn't get a chance to respond. I wish I would have got back earlier, because if you guys are right I just wasted some money. One thing good that has come out of it though, my daughter now knows we haven't done anything wrong regarding the horse, not that she didn't before, but you know...I didn't want her to ever doubt it. The vet said four scoops is a lot, but fine as long as she has weight to gain. She said not to increase the feed without reason (loss of weight or no longer gaining weight). She said 4 scoops is enough, even if she could not eat the grass and hay (which she can and should be able to do so for at least 6 months or more). She is completely rideable with her body condition of 4. Just so y'all know

Not all rescues are bad. But there are a lot of them that are actually just horse traders posing as rescues, and essentially running a scam. They send out a rescue horse for someone else to fatten and vet them up, and then reclaim them, finding some reason or another, turn around and sell the horses for profit. It's horrible and it happens all the time. Just make sure you get EVERYTHING in writing. If your road is to stick with Hope, get the vet to write down everything he said, signed and notarized. Make sure the contract with the rescue agent is concise and clear as to what constitutes a violation worthy of them reclaiming the horse - again in writing. Make sure there are NO generalities - so they can't come through your barn, say, hey, you haven't hosed off your manure fork yet today, I'm reclaiming the horse.
