Just nothing adds up. I'm curious why you're selling a good mare and then asking for people to give you free ones to "get your ranch started." Makes no sense.

Looking for Free Horses to get Ranch Started

Looking for free horses to get my ranch started - Free

"I'm starting up a ranch and I was looking for some free horses to get me underway, all I ask is that they are healthy and can load in a trailer. I am a trainer of 5 years, barrel racer for 3 years and a horse woman for 16 years. I know how to handle and take care of horses and I can garantee you that they will be in great hands. Any type of horse I perfer nothing over 16 unless they can still perform resonably. I will only take 1 or 2 stallions for the time being untill I get my stallion stalls and pens ready. Thank you, Legend Ranch"

...stallions? Do you have any sort of breeding program planned out, or just "whatever you can get?" Between this and the highly unrealistic price on your mare, I think you are in for a very rude awakening in the horse industry.

Sure, it's your business, but you really ought to think this through...

well i had started with a smalll place (30 acres) i was gong to do breeding and training. well my cousin who lives on the land and THINKS she owns it decided to kick all the horses off the property. i had oy two horses before starting this and i now have 8. also now aparently we are moving to west texas just out of the blue. i will rebuild my ranch there. if we dont move then i will buy land here. i am 17 and working up to a long life dream of mine and my dads who past away last year. i was doing good with the ranch till ousin decided she didnt want to work with me like she had promissed to. she is now threatning to cut the water off and dehydrate my animals. i dont live on the property w horses so find some place to put them before she kills them

You've been a horse woman since you were one year old?
Can I ask why you are selling your horses because you don't have the facilities for them, while asking for free horses at the same time?

Six months, Alex, although I suppose you could be right depending on her birthday...

Am I correct in assuming that at age 17 you don't own any land whatsoever, let alone 30 acres? If you DO own it, you have legal rights and certainly do not need to be run off by this gal. Call a lawyer...

Freebies from the Internet? What are you going to do with them now? Breed more, which you also have no place for? How are you going to feed them? Where will you keep them? Who will buy them, if you can't even sell your broke, seasoned mare? Careful or you'll be stuck running them through the sale at $25/head, for slaughter. Because that, my friend, is the state of the horse market.

So, no real "plans?" That's not the way to start a business. Who is "we?" You and your...fiance? Where will the money come from?

Sorry for the loss of your dad, but this is still not making the least bit of sense. What is said dream? To breed any ol' random free horses together to make baby horses? Feed them for years, train them, and sell them? How's the selling thing working out? Not too well, judging by this thread. Do you know anything about the current economy, horse market, and slaughter situation? If people are giving you horses for free, what does that tell you about the horses' value and future marketability? The LAST thing they need is to be bred to produce more of the same...

Explain "doing good."

Ohmygoodness. Do NOT get any more. Give away the ones you can, if you can find good homes. Call animal control if you have to get them in rescue situations so that they don't die due to family rivalries and crap. Gah, gah, gah. Are warning bells not going off in your head?

My advice? Rehome all of your horses except for the ones you can afford to pay board on, since you obviously have no stable place to keep them. Get a (real) job. Save money. Grow up. You're 17, for Pete's sake, with your whole life ahead of you. Learn. Read. Apprentice with a good trainer or breeder. Get your name out there. Buy property outright. Get a few GOOD horses, ones worth breeding, training, and selling, that will actually make you money. THAT is a ranch.

Boy, am I lost...maybe I'm just having a senior moment. You are 17 and have been a "horse woman" for 16 years and a "trainer" for 5 years"?...

I'm sorry but curiosity has the better of me too. How did you come up with a new revised price of $1757?

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Sounds like you got in over your head. I would agree to go the apprentice route.
