A Whole Mini Herd!

Wow...after reading this description from craigslist...I really want to swoop in and take these horses...but I have no money or farm. I doubt my neighbors would love me for it either...

Take a look...what do you all think?

I'm going to buy all of them, and turn my basement into a barn to make room.

Oh jeez I just looked at the location, now you've gone and done it! They're only a few hours from me... my boyfriend is going to be irritated when I bring this up and ask for a pony instead of a puppy this year

I'll tell him to blame it on you!

I think the owner is an idiot and that 30 mares that are all covered for 2012 is crazy. That turns into 60 if all survive and his $3000/month feed bill just turned into $6000/month.

If your serious about taking them in, I would turn around and adopt them out to others. But you said you don't have money or a farm, therefore what good could you do for these horses?

Someone has to be crazy to take all 30. The owner obviously doesn't really want to sell of he'd be willing to part with them.

Haha...I'm honestly tempted to turn them into the local animal control...when you have horses that you know have bad feet and you do not get them care...that is abuse...

This looks like a "mini horse mill" instead of a puppy mill. I could be wrong but these poor things all look terrible and miserable. And "breeding program my butt!!! Ok...done venting!

Of course its a pony mill! No respectful breeder doesn't even have current coggins on a horse, and breeds them in known bad shape.

But they still look like dolls, and I am tempted to go and get one... I think I have a dog house it could borrow At least the feed bill slapped this lady back a couple paces an she's thinning out.

I couldn't not do it. I thought and prayed about it and after some research, I called the local animal control...that's the good I can do for these horses. If nothing comes of it, I'll feel good knowing that I at least took action against something I felt was wrong. I hope that something good does come out of it and I requested a return call if the horses are in really bad shape and are rescued. Will keep everyone posted if I get a call back.

They have been listing this forever. Problem is the guy really wants to sell the herd together, he is non neg. On any of his prices. Right now in sw va I can got buy a registered mini down the road any size, shape, color, training, whatever for $150. He isn't trying too hard to get rid of them sense he hasn't sold any in eight months.
