Well thank you for your help. Thanks for giving this mare a chance. And thanks for all the links to horses in need from these other sources you speak of. Obviously you are helping more horses with your phenomenal information and I think I speak for everyone when I say thanks for all of your time and energy. These two posts you made are bound to save horses. You are a great person.
What I am is a realist, when you see horses that go for under $300 through the meat ring being sold for over $1000 a day or two later you know someone is doing well out of the business.
I am neither a great person or a bad person, I have taken in 3 horses now from my local meat auction, 1 I lost, one I re sold and one is still with me, so I do my bit quietly for rescues.
You don't know how many people you speak for, I am NOT saying don't give this mare a chance, I'm not telling anyone not to adopt her, all I'm saying is do your homework first. If all is fine, then there is no issue with people checking is there??
I am not posting dozens of links for horses for rescue, as I say would rather people went to their local auctions and saved the ones who don't hit the headlines, they are just as needy.
I really hope this mare gets the 2nd chance that she needs, I would love it if every horse that deserved a chance was given it, but I also would rather not support the whole business of 'Mare in kill pen needs rescuing NOW'
