Im fixin to adopt a miniature horse from a lady that rescues different animals...
She is our family doctor.

She has various birds, mini's, couple of goats....i think that's it so far

She agreed to move a mini to my pasture since my Appy is going blind in one eye...we are hoping that he works as a good pasture mate for him
If all goes well he can stay!!

She has 5 that she would like to find homes for .. I love them all but I only need one...maybe once we are finished setting up our fields we can afford another...i hope anyway!!

A lot of rescues now are waiving the adoption fee, or have greatly reduced it

Saddlebred rescue for one - and I think the houston spca had greatly reduced prices at one time.

I am all for rescue horses but I find that adopting one is more like "renting". Like there are so many specifics (atleast with the one around here). Like for some you can't breed (not a problem here but if I were to adopt a mare I would like the potential to be there for a possible breeding), can't show at certain shows, they must know ALL vet and farrier visits as well as places you take them, alot of adoption places make you take them to certain vets and farriers. Also they come in and check from time to time which is fine but not my cup of tea.

Im not sure what its like anywhere else but around here, its the basic reason I havent adopted one. I like to be able to make the choices I want with my horse along with having the farrier and vet I want. Im sure not all are like this though lol.

I know saddlebred rescue retains first right of refusal, but once the horse is yours, it's yours...breeding, showing or otherwise...actually, they promote it!
