Anyway let.s forget about ourselves and think about this horses life. Thank you.
I have had some pretty bad dealings with horse "rescuers" and very very very few of them truly "rescue" horses.

People should be very wary of any rescues that come across like the OP. Money was sent to one rescuer on COTH and they promptly bought themselves a nice new trailer and bred more unwanted horses from her unregistered rescue stallion( offspring that she could not pawn off to the people in her area).

I am a follower of FUGLY and before ANYONE sends money to this person read the unhappy results of one person that dealt with this ...ummmm organization.

I don't find Golden Horse to be rude. One must be careful on the internet at all times and we read of so many "rescues" that end up needing rescue themselves. We must all be sure when we decide to donate hard earned money that it goes to a place that is truly capable of helping.

Some kid that used to be a friend of ours (long story) just got taken for a ride - some "rescue" group around here fished a bunch of horses out of auction, threw 'em in a field, are doing NOTHING with them (no idea if they're broke, or even going to try) and are now selling some Arab mare to this kid for $500. That is highway robbery. This kid is 16 years old and has ridden nothing but dead broke horses up to this point. She's going to get seriously hurt, and could have gotten something older and halfway trained for that price.

And yeah, this group (posted by the OP) is RENOWNED for threatening you with the horse being sent to slaughter, getting the money and sending it anyway. Don't be a bleeding heart, it doesn't help the horse whatsoever.

You know, I don't particularly care if someone or their organization is a horse broker. What I do care about is the, ZOMG! SAVE THE PWETTY HORSIE OR IT GOES TO THE EVIL SLAUGHTER PEOPLE! Posts.

AC4H is primarily a broker, and I don't have an issue with that. It's the faux rescue and fake urgent posts they make that I despise.

If a horse is in the kill pen there's usually a reason for it, and many times it has nothing to do with an evil, unfeeling owner. Most of them are damaged physically or mentally, and the owner has chosen the auction route instead of euthanasia. It may not be how I'd choose to address the situation but it's not wrong, it's just different.

In my opinion, to deliberately play on the emotions of tender hearted, naive people is more evil than how or why that horse ended up in the kill pen. Many of the animals AC4H claims are going to slaughter are never in danger at all, but the 'save this horse from slaughter!' rant opens up peoples' pocketbooks faster than the actual truth.

I for one don't like to see good hearted people taken advantage of by scummy scam artists out to make a quick buck.

I agree that nothing about GH's posts were rude. There is nothing wrong with cautioning people about being careful who they hand money over to. Read the link provided in Spyder's post. This particular place DOES have a bad reputation, and has for a few years now.

I'm all for saving a horse's life. I have bought horses out of the kill pens myself more than once - from my LOCAL auction. I currently have a young mule I bought out of the kill pens for $25 bucks. I prefer being able to look at the horse I am saving, know EXACTLY what their fee straight out of the kill pen is, and pay my money direct so it doesn't go through several hands and get spread far and wide to some pretty questionable sources.

There has also been thousands of very happy people who have saved through ac4h. Seems to be more good out of bad. A lot of nice horses end up in kill lot, not the horses fault. Christy does hard work to save these horses regardless, I have a close friend who has rescued many of these horses and have had no problems. I have also donated torwards certain horses with no problems. Very friendly nice people! so please let's help this poor mare! She still needs a home! $325 is a small price for her plus she already has donations torwards her!

Then it will be very nice of YOU TO PAY THIS if you are so concerned.

Please post an update of how this mare is doing under your care when you have her safely home.

I wish I could but my all my funds all into a property so I will be able to save a few horses. That is why I am taking my time posting her out there. I figured it something I can do since I am not able to home her.

Just a quick word and then I will be done. Almost everywhere there are horse auctions going on right now. Locally. Those horses need 'saving' as much as these horses posted by brokers like AC4H and Camelot. I get very upset when I see local rescues (to me, here in PA) saving horses out of the Camelot (NJ) and New Holland (Eastern PA) auctions when I was at an auction yesterday where several horses when to the killbuyer...why? No rescues present. And they went for pennies on the pound.

Just something to think about before 'saving' (really just buying a horse from an auction, sight unseen) a horse from halfway across the country.

If I were looking to take a horse from a rescue place, you bet your buns I'm going to research and put my money into a rescue that does a good job rescuing and rehoming.
Then again, I also think playing on heartstrings ("save her or she will end up at the killer!") is a fairly low way to advertise a horse.
Is the mare at the "rescue" or is she in the lot to be sold?
